Release announcement: TablePress 1.7

Earlier this week, WordPress 4.4 was released with many great new things. As an early Christmas present, I’m happy to announce that a new release of TablePress is now available as well. TablePress 1.7 can now be downloaded from the WordPress Plugin Directory and will show up as an automatic update in the WordPress Dashboard for existing users shortly.

I’d like to say “Thank you!” to all testers, users, and supporters of TablePress, especially those that supported the plugin with a donation or good rating in the WordPress Plugin Directory! Your support is highly appreciated! Thank you very much!
