    You should find most of these fixed in Version 1.1.

    The UI has been changed to be (hopefully) more intuitive. The main setting to enable/disable updates is now a dropdown, and the dependent options have been changed from disabled to readonly, so that their values are retained. The core option has been changed to a select dropdown, to control the level: minor, major, or development. (Note: the way to disable minor core updates is to disable updates altogether.)

    I’ve also added options to enable Plugin, Theme, and Translation updates – as well as options to disable update result emails (altogether, or by result type).

    Not much I can do about the placement on Settings -> General. I think that settings page is the correct place for the Plugin’s options.

    I have version 1.2.1 and nothing has changed. I check “Permit Automatic Updates?”, save and “Permit Automatic Updates?” becomes unchecked. And I don’t find how to enable “advanced” settings.

    PHP 5.4, IIS7, WP 3.7, nb_NO.

    Please delete and reinstall the Plugin. Version 1.2.1 no longer has a “Permit Automatic Updates?” checkbox. It has been converted to a select dropdown.

    It would appear that your update did not happen successfully/completely – or else you might have a caching issue?

    I don’t know what happened, but searched plugins to install, and clicked “upgrade”, since this plugin was already installed. I usually don’t upgrade this way. The header of the main plugin file clearly said “1.2.1”. Partial update of some kind must have happened.

    Anyway, I have now reinstalled, and the UI seems fine.

    Is the default settings he same as core defaults?

    Great to hear!

    Yes, and with any potential future updates, the intent will be to keep the Plugin’s defaults consistent with core defaults.
