    Hi Susan, thanks for your question. I had expected this one sooner or later.

    I will not be adding an option for opening links in a new window. Let me explain why.

    First of all, I’m not a big fan of forcing target _blank on links. This is something the user should decide (by holding shift, for example).

    Secondly, page redirection and opening links in a new window are two separate (unrelated) operations. Ideally, you should look for a “open in new window” plugin.

    Also, it would be hard to implement reliably unless all your page links are created using functions like permalink_anchor, wp_list_pages, etc.

    If you want to add a target _blank to a link you can do so yourself any way you like. Speedy Page Redirect just takes care of the redirection part.
