Easy Updates Manager are happy to announce that we have released another update – Easy Updates Manager 8.1.0 (free and premium), featuring lots of newly added features, fixes and tweaks. One of the new features that we are sure will be of use to users is the addition of a new ‘notes section’ that will show extra detail on why an automatic update may have failed. This update will help users to identify and fix any potential problems with their automatic updates.

We recommend the update for all Easy Updates Manager Free and Premium users.

  • FEATURE: Notes section added to log to show why an automatic update failed.
  • FEATURE: (Premium) Adding version control protection so that version controlled plugins or themes will not be updated.
  • FIX: Fixed saving error when toggling auto-update on individual themes.
  • FIX: Don’t wipe settings when removing the free version, if premium is installed. Or vice versa.
