Gravity Forms v1.9.5 is now available via automatic update and the customer downloads page. This is a maintenance and developer release that also includes a security patch related to the Gravity Forms API.
Many developers may not be aware of it but Gravity Forms has a full featured API available for implementing customizations and 3rd party integrations.
Gravity Forms developer Steve Henty has published a fantastic overview of the Gravity Forms API, including sample code, over at his personal blog. We highly recommend Gravity Forms users and developers check it out!
Steve has also published several other great Gravity Forms tutorials focusing on developer features. Check out his tutorial on Gravity Forms as part of a developer platform and his approval workflow add-on tutorial and be sure to follow his blog!
Gravity Forms v1.9.4 is now available via automatic update and the customer downloads page. This is a maintenance and security release and we recommend users update as soon as possible.
This release includes a fix for a blind SQL injection vulnerability similar to the issue recently fixed in other popular WordPress plugins such as WPSEO, WooCommerce, and PODS. The scope of this vulnerability was limited to functionality within the Gravity Forms admin by a user within sufficient privileges to view and edit forms within the WordPress Dashboard. By default this vulnerability could only be exploited by a WordPress user with admin privileges to your site and could not be exploited anonymously from the frontend.
The Gravity Forms Survey Add-On v2.5 is now available via automatic update and the Add-On Downloads page. This is a maintenance release that also requires Gravity Forms v1.9+.
We suggest all users update to this release as soon as possible just as we always recommend users update WordPress and WordPress Plugins when updates are available.
Gravity Forms v1.9.2 is now available via automatic update and the customer downloads page. This is an important security and maintenance release.
We recommend all users update as soon as possible. It is important to always keep WordPress, plugins and themes up to date as a matter of best practice.
We highly recommend users enable background automatic updates within the Gravity Forms Settings so that maintenance updates can be applied automatically the same way WordPress core handles maintenance updates.
Gravity Forms v1.9 is now available via automatic update for existing users.
As we mentioned in the Gravity Forms v1.9 release announcement, we chose to delay making v1.9 available via automatic update so that we could include any post-launch fixes before users updated existing installs.
This is a major feature release that includes a variety of highly anticipated new features. For a complete rundown of what is new in Gravity Forms v1.9, check out the release announcement.
Gravity Forms v1.9 is now available via the downloads page. This is a major feature release that introduces several highly anticipated features such as Save and Continue!
We are taking a slightly different approach to the roll out of this major release. We have made Gravity Forms v1.9 available to new users and to existing users via the downloads page. However, we will not be deploying it via automatic update until we release v1.9.1.
Why? Because a follow up to a major feature release such as this is inevitable and we'd prefer that existing users do not need to automatically update multiple times within a short time period if it can be avoided. We are taking deployment cues from managed WordPress hosting services who routinely deploy major WordPress updates only after a subsequent maintenance release.
If you would like to update an existing site prior to automatic update being deployed, you can certainly do so by downloading v1.9 from the downloads page and manually updating your site.
Enough with the boring details, let's take a look at what is in the v1.9 release of Gravity Forms...
