Time Saver!!

Great plugin, now using on personal sites, friends and clients to make sure they keep their sites up-to-date and more secure!

I have been waiting for this plugin for some time! Awesome, just awesome!

A great time-saver

I use this plugin on test installs where I have so many plugins installed, I just don't want to update them all. And if they're unstable, that's okay - it's just a test install. I use this along with the WordPress Beta Tester and Plugin Beta Tester plugins.

One setting I'd like to see is an options to only send emails for plugin, theme, or core upgrades, instead of a single setting that covers all three.

Automated SVN updates that just work
By ,

I like to keep up to date using SVN but sometimes (often) I'm not able ssh to my server and perform the updates.

This plugin does the job well. I get an email with each update update and for running my multisite installation on 3.6 trunk this plugin is perfect.

Making my life way easier

Keeping sites I've set up for friends up to date has been a trial. I'm happy to say this is no longer true. I've got this plugin running on all my sites, even ones where I auto-update core myself, because I feel confident in updating themes and plugins automagically.

If you, like me, carefully vet and test every plugin and theme that goes on your sites, this is a perfect plugin for you. Use it. Love it. Rate it.

So helpful

Save a lot of time.

Wonderful utility

So far working well with only one exception and that is no fault of the author's. Great functionality much needed by anyone who manages multiple WP sites.

So Far So Good

I manage many sites but I only put this on one to test. It has been running for almost 4 months without a hitch. SO far so good.

Nice plugin!

What more can I say?

Works as intended, great bit of work, thanks!

It auto-upgrades nicely and sends email when it is done.

Of course, my only concern is about it breaking production sites - would love to see some auto-testing/auto-undo. I know that isn't easy and I understand you're working on it already! Thanks for taking this complex issue on, very excited to see this plugin.

Highly recommended for smaller sites, or non-production sites of any size.
