    Hi there,

    I apologize for the problem with the earlier upgrade, and I'm sorry that you ran into this problem. Here's a quick explanation, and suggestion for the fix.

    First, if you are currently unable to access your WordPress admin interface, you can fix the problem by deleting the problem version of FeedWordPress from your web hosting environment. Use an FTP, SFTP, or similar tool to bring up the wp-content/plugins directory in your web hosting environment, and delete the feedwordpress subdirectory from that directory. (You shouldn't lose any of your data -- that's all stored in the WordPress database, not in the subdirectory.) Now, go to wp-admin and see if you can log in again.

    Second, install the most recent release of FeedWordPress, just released this afternoon -- 2013.0504. This should resolve the problem with Friday's release and installing it should fix the issue.

    Let me know if this works for you. If so, great; if not, let me know where you ran into the problem and I'll try to help with troubleshooting.

    Briefly, the explanation for the issue is that there's a required code module in the new version, which was included in the plugin repository on Github but which I didn't properly commit to the WordPress.org plugin repository. The problem showed up yesterday because I had to push a release to the WordPress repository in order to resolve an unrelated security issue in older versions of the plugin (* not an issue that would allow malicious strangers to do anything bad to your site; rather, an issue which might allow some already logged-in WordPress admin to do some things they shouldn't be able to do with regard to the web hosting environment). But since the required code module went into Github, but not into the WordPress.org repository, when you tried to grab the update, you didn't get all the files you needed for it to operate properly, and this caused a PHP error on the backend. I am very sorry for any problems that this has caused. I have made a fix which should resolve this problem -- as well as providing a fix for some unrelated PHP 5.4 compatibility issues -- which I released this afternoon as FeedWordPress 2013.0504.

    Hope this helps.
