  2. Gravity Forms PayPal Payments Pro Add-On v1.0 Beta 1 Released

    Gravity Forms PayPal Payments Pro Add-On

    The Gravity Forms PayPal Payments Pro Add-On v1.0 Beta 1 is now available.

    Not to be confused with the legacy PayPal Pro, this new Add-On allows you to accept payments via PayPal's newer PayPal Payments Pro payment processing service.

    As new payment processing startups such a Stripe and WePay move in on PayPal's turf it has forced them to re-organize their product offerings which has caused fragmentation. What was previously known as PayPal Pro is not the same thing that is currently being marketed by PayPal as PayPal Payments Pro.

    If you signed up for PayPal's "Pro" offering within the last year you likely have a newer PayPal Payments Pro account utilizing the Payflow API that this Add-On is designed to integrate with.

  4. Important Gravity Forms Standard Support Change Announcement

    We are announcing a major change to how we handle standard support. It will no longer be handled via a forum system. We will now be handling standard support requests via the same ticketing system we utilize for Contact Us and Priority Support requests.

    Due to Gravity Forms explosive user growth over the last 4 years, the volume of support requests has also risen. This has made managing standard support via a forum environment simply to inefficient and unmanageable for our support team to provide the level of support we'd like to provide our users. Discussion Forums are simply not designed for managing and facilitating support. They are designed for discussion.

  5. Gravity Forms v1.7.6 Released

    Gravity Forms v1.7.6 is now available via automatic update and the downloads page. This is a major maintenance release that introduces quite a few changes under the hood as well as some new hooks for developers to take advantage.

    One major non-user facing change that we are extremely excited about in this release is the first iteration of the Gravity Forms Add-On Framework. This is a framework built into Gravity Forms to allow both developers to develop Add-Ons more efficiently and quickly by standardizing a lot of the things that almost every Add-On needs or utilizes. This will be extremely helpful for both Add-Ons we develop and Add-Ons developed and released by 3rd party developers.

    Currently the Add-On Framework in this release is dormant, it is not being used. But we will be releasing an Add-On soon that does utilize it which is why it is being included in this release. We will also be releasing documentation specific about the Add-On Framework, what it can do and how it can be used by developers. We're really excited that this will make it easier for developers to create Add-Ons for Gravity Forms is a more consistent and efficient manner.
