UPDATE: We’ve informally released 2.0.22 on September 13, 2013.
IMPORTANT: THIS IS A MILDLY TESTED BETA: This is a beta, which means we haven’t fully tested it. We know it fix certain issues, but it may introduce some others. You should only update to the beta version if you are comfortable manually updating and managing your site via FTP.
IMPORTANT: DON’T “UNINSTALL” NEXTGEN: As you update or rollback or change version, the one thing you do not want to do is click the “Uninstall” links to uninstall NextGEN. Uninstalling runs a process that removes all files, including all your galleries and images. You can deactivate, you can replace files, you can rename the NextGEN folder and upload new files. These are all safe and different from officially “Uninstalling” the plugin.
ISSUES WITH THE BETAS? If you have problems after updating to the latest beta, you can always roll back to an earlier version. Again, don’t uninstall. See our rollback guide: http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/how-to-rollback-a-version/ We would also appreciate if you would submit a bug report here: http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/report-bug/
UPDATING FROM BETAS TO FINAL RELEASE: We are numbering/versioning these betas so that if you install them, when we do finally push out a public release, you’ll be able to auto-update from your WordPress dashboard like normal.
