Release announcement: TablePress 1.0

It’s my great pleasure to announce the availability of a shiny new release of TablePress. Version 1.0 marks a big milestone and is now available for download in the WordPress Plugin Directory and as an automatic update in your WordPress Dashboard.

Before we get to the details, I’d like to take the time and thank all users and supporters of TablePress, especially those that supported the plugin with a donation or good rating in the WordPress Plugin Directory. TablePress has already been downloaded over 50,000 times (WOW!) and is currently ranking in the Top 30 of the highest rated plugins. Thank you very much!

TablePress 1.0 is now “feature complete” with the first batch of features that I wanted to integrate. The release now also contains all features from its predecessor WP-Table Reloaded and is now better than that old plugin in all areas and across-the-board. It contains a few bug fixes and many enhancements and new features, and I therefore highly recommended to update, if you have been using a previous version of TablePress before. If you have been reluctant to migrate from WP-Table Reloaded so far, now is the perfect time to do it.

The most interesting changes in TablePress 1.0 include:

  • Possibility to uninstall TablePress and delete all data automatically
  • Better import of DataTables settings from WP-Table Reloaded
  • “Append” as another import option, addionally to “Add” and “Replace”
  • Better RTL language support on frontend
  • Compatibility of Custom CSS files with WP Multisite installations
  • Added Polish translation and updated existing ones

Additionally, some bugs were fixed and minor enhancements to the code and to the user interface have been added. More information can be found in the Changelog. Also, TablePress is now available in seven languages (Chinese, English, French, German, Polish, Slovak, and Spanish). Thanks to the translators!

If this update is helpful for you, please rate TablePress in the WordPress Plugin Directory and consider supporting further TablePress development with a donation. Thank you!
