[4.26.3] 25.07.2016

  • Fix: Selecting a sub-group/list of caps does make the ure_select_all_caps checkbox select all within that group, but checking that box when at the "All" top-level group did not work.
  • Fix: Notice: Undefined property: URE_Role_View::$apply_to_all

[4.26.1] 14.07.2016

  • Fix: some bugs, like 'undefined property' notices, etc.

[4.26] 14.07.2016

  • New: User capabilities were groupd by functionality for more convenience.
  • Update: URE_KEY_CAPABILITY constant was changed from 'ure_edit_roles' to 'ure_manage_options'. To make possible for non-admin users access to the User Role Editor without access to the 'administrator' role and users with 'administrator' role.
  • Update: User receives full access to User Role Editor under WordPress multisite if he has 'manage_network_plugins' capability instead of 'manager_network_users' as earlier. This allows to give user ability to edit network users without giving him access to the User Role Editor.
  • Update: Multisite: use WordPress's global $current_site->blog_id to define main blog ID instead of selecting the 1st one from the sorted list of blogs.
  • Update: use WP transients at URE_Lib::_get_post_types() to reduce response time.
  • Update: various internal optimizations.

[4.25.2] 03.05.2016

  • Update: Enhanced inner processing of available custom post types list.
  • Update: Uses 15 seconds transient cache in order to not count users without role twice when 'restrict_manage_users' action fires.
  • Update: URE fires action 'profile_update' after direct update of user permissions in order other plugins may catch such change.
  • Update: All URE's PHP classes files renamed and moved to the includes/classes subdirectory

[4.25.1] 15.04.2016

  • Fix: Selected role's capabilities list was returned back to old after click "Update" button. It was showed correctly according to the recent updates just after additional page refresh.
  • Update: deprecated function get_current_user_info() call was replaced with wp_get_current_user().

[4.25] 02.04.2016

  • Important security update: Any registered user could get an administrator access. Thanks to John Muncaster for discovering and wisely reporting it.
  • URE pages title tag was replaced from h2 to h1, for compatibility with other WordPress pages.
  • Fix: "Assign role to the users without role" feature ignored role selected by user.
  • Fix: PHP fatal error (line 34) was raised at uninstall.php for WordPress multisite.
  • Update: action priority 99 was added for role additional options hook action setup.

[4.24] 17.03.2016

  • Fix: PHP notice was generated by class-role-additional-options.php in case when some option does not exist anymore
  • Enhance: 'Add Capability' button have added capability to the WordPress built-in administrator role by default. It did not work, if 'administrator' role did not exist. Now script selects automatically as an admin role a role with the largest quant of capabilities and adds new capability to the selected role.
  • New: User capabilities page was integrated with "User Switching" plugin - "Switch To" the editing user link iss added if "User Switching" plugin is available.
  • Marked as compatible with WordPress 4.5.

[4.23.2] 03.02.2016

  • Fix: PHP warning "Strict Standards: Static function URE_Base_Lib::get_instance() should not be abstract" was generated

[4.23.1] 01.02.2016

  • Fix: 'get_called_class()' function call was excluded for the compatibility with PHP 5.2.*
  • Fix: ure-users.js was loaded not only to the 'Users' page.

[4.23] 31.01.2016

  • Fix: "Users - Without Role" button showed empty roles drop down list on the 1st call.
  • Update: Own task queue was added, so code which should executed once after plugin activation is executed by the next request to WP and may use a selected WordPress action to fire with a needed priority.
  • Update: Call of deprecated mysql_server_info() is replaced with $wpdb->db_version().
  • Update: Singleton patern is applied to the URE_Lib class.
  • Minor code enhancements

[4.22] 15.01.2016

  • Unused 'add_users' capability was removed from the list of core capabilities as it was removed from WordPress starting from version 4.4
  • bbPress user capabilities are supported for use in the non-bbPress roles. You can not edit roles created by bbPress, as bbPress re-creates them dynamically for every request to the server. Full support for bbPress roles editing will be included into User Role Editor Pro version 4.22.
  • Self-added "Other Roles" column removed from "Users" list, as WordPress started to show all roles assigned to the user in its own "Role" column.
  • 'ure_show_additional_capabilities_section' filter allows to hide 'Other Roles' section at the 'Add new user', 'Edit user' pages.
