JobRoller Version 1.6.4

On October 5th, 2012, JobRoller 1.6.4 was released. This is a maintenance and security release. It addresses a handful of bugs. Upgrading is highly recommended for all 1.6 customers. Fixed 18 tickets total. A breakdown of tickets can be found below.

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.
