Version 1.5 of Easy Digital Downloads was released a few hours ago and, to be perfectly honest, it’s awesome. It is by far the largest release we have pushed out yet and includes some really phenomenal new features.

I’ll leave the extensive details for the actual release post, but let me give you some highlights:

  • Dramatically improved checkout user experience
  • Complete JSON/XML RESTful API for products, sale / earning stats, customers, etc
  • New fees system for adding arbitrary fees to the cart
  • Improved reporting
  • Improved export options
  • Significantly improved performance
  • Product-specific discounts
  • Much more

    Hi Pippin,

    You have good reason to be proud of this. The code is an “awesome” (and elegant) example of the right way to create a plugin with all the bells and whistles:
    – custom post types and taxonomies
    – admin screens (with tabs and filters)
    – content editing
    – reporting, logs
    – user-facing ajax
    – api !!

    All this while maintaining the WordPress coding and style standards … Congratulations!

    I will be learning from this and modeling my own in-house plugin after it. Don’t worry, I am no competition for you … mine is for a completely different purpose, but I need many of the same features.

    Thanks, Ron
