Release announcement: TablePress 1.9

I’m happy to announce that a new release of TablePress is now available. TablePress 1.9 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.

This release not only fixes a few annoying bugs for some users, but it also brings a nice feature for the “Custom CSS” editor: It now shows common syntax errors, which will make it even easier to style tables with CSS code.

Here is a summary of the changes in TablePress 1.9:

  • Full compatibility with WordPress 4.9
  • Feature: The “Custom CSS” text field highlights and notifies about CSS code syntax errors.
  • Enhancement: Update list of allowed CSS properties in “Custom CSS”.
  • Enhancement: Make the CSV import more robust against malformed input.
  • Bugfix: The integration into the WordPress search was broken since a WordPress core change.
  • Bugfix: The HTML import was broken on certain server configurations.
  • Updated external libraries (Build tools).
  • Some internal changes and fixes for better stability, cleaner code, translations, and documentation.
  • TablePress 1.9 requires WordPress 4.9.1!

Updates to some TablePress Extensions will also be available shortly. Please take a look through the list of Extensions and check if there’s maybe an update available.
