    Envato Toolkit v1.3 – update released

    Release summary: Added support for purchase time and license expiration time. Plus split to two fields on ‘license_type’ to ‘license’ and ‘license_type’.

    Update reasoning: It evolved naturally, while developing my own plugin with all these validations, I saw that for general-purpose use, when I use “Envato Toolkit” just as one of libraries, and I want to have things standardized, the time parameter is required to match the standards with other libraries, or just with local input on the site, there UNIX_TIMESTAMP() is given and then can be parsed for both – date and time. So I’ve added this to the Envato Toolkit standalone library and the plugin as well.
    Regarding the ‘license’ and ‘license_type’ – again, it evolved naturally. The ‘license’ suppose to be a text string in one language to read, while ‘license_type’ should be used to transfer data via API as a keyword for translations and comparing – ‘EXTENDED’, “REGULAR’ or something else, i.e. in my case the 3rd option is ‘PARTNER’, when the license needs to be given to partner company for i.e. testing or partnership purpose.
