JobRoller Version 1.6.3

On August 15th, 2012, JobRoller 1.6.3 was released. This is a maintenance and security release. It addresses a handful of bugs and adds some new features. Upgrading is highly recommended for all 1.6 customers. Fixed 15 tickets total. A breakdown of tickets can be found below.

This release moves the login logic away from JobRoller and into the AppThemes framework. Although there are no visual changes, this change is especially important after JR 1.6.2 where wrappers were introduced. Wrappers work best with the new login logic.

Upgrading is recommended as there’s also additional security changes that avoid javascript exploits

Upgrade Information

Now you can automatically upgrade directly from your WordPress admin. Under “Appearance” => “Themes”, you’ll see an upgrade link next to JobRoller. If you don’t, check back later. The AppThemes upgrade check API runs twice a day. It’s important to note that using this auto updater will overwrite any custom coding done to the theme. Customers who have made theme code changes will need to manually upgrade instead.

If you prefer the old fashion way or have made core theme modifications (which is not recommended), visit AppThemes to download the full version.
