The primary goal of PW_Archives is to be light-weight and efficient. I’ve tried almost all of the popular archiving plugins out there, and so many of them make hundreds or even thousands of queries depending on the number of posts you have on your site. PW_Archives makes only one query to get your posts. That’s it. Not only that but it doesn’t do endless amounts of looping and counting to determine post and comment counts. That’s all included in the one query it does, and it’s very efficient.

- Updated to support WordPress 3.3
- Fixed a minor bug where a JS files was being properly dequeued
- Fixed a bug where PW_MultiModelController wasn’t properly deleting a model instance
- Fixed errors from the svn upload process
- PW_Archives options are now controlled using a system based off of WordPress’s menus. This allows users to create multiple instances of specific settings and easily reference them in widgets and shortcodes.
- Added custom post type support
- Updated the installation instruction to fix some confusion that existed.
- Changed the PW_Form class to pwaForm to avoid a naming conflict
- Decided changing the defaults wasn’t a good idea because it might break existing sites that are hand coding their options and relying on defaults. The default is once again to show posts.
- Switch from date() to date_i18n() to help add support for other localizations.
- Change the default options to not show posts
- Updated the uninstall.php file to removed options from all blogs (if in multisite), not just the primary blog.
- Added an uninstall.php file to remove options from the database when a user uninstalls the plugin. Previously these options were removed when a user deactivated the plugin, which caused problems when users would update WordPress because (as part of the upgrade process) it would deactivate and then reactivate all plugins and thus erase the options stored in the database.
