I've figured out the exclude pages bug, plus two other bugs reported by others. I'm kinda flummoxed by this issue of custom settings being lost though. Do you know if it is ALL of the settings, or perhaps just some of them? From what I'm hearing from you guys it sounds like no settings are being transferred over at all, but I'm a little stumped as to why that would happen for some people but not all.
I'll upload the fixes I've got done now, but I need to go to work and probably can't do any more changes until I get home sorry. But if you have any further information, I will look into it as soon as I can.
Sorry for the problems you experienced. I was aware this was a massive upgrade and had potential for problems, but since no one mentioned any bugs whatsoever during the beta testing phase, I figured all was well. It seems I goofed up and a lot more bugs slipped through than I was aware of. Not that it's of much use now, but I can assure you this won't happen again. This was a rather unique situation in that I had to rebuild the plugin from the ground up as I'd done such a bad job of it originally. I was worried potential performance and security problems with the plugin were going to come back to haunt me, and a rebuild was the only way I can think of to bring the plugin back up to scratch. Unfortunately, a complete rebuild is also fraught with incompatibilities and fresh bugs. It seems my attempts to launch the new version with zero bugs has failed bad :(
New version should be available in a few minutes ....
