Currently, we have the upcoming Flatpress 1.2 “Legato” in a first beta testing phase. You might want to check that out!
More details on the support forum …

FlatPress 1.1

With release 1.1, we took the time to fix a few more things, and to clean up a little bit. The BBCode toolbar has now graphical icons and knows a few more elements, some more languages are included, and a number of bugs and glitches have been fixed. Even one security fix is on board.
See this blog post for more details.

Please contact us to report any bugs and suggestions.

Update 1.0(.x) to 1.1

Updating FlatPress from 1.0 (or one of its minor releases, e.g. 1.0.3) to 1.1 is quite simple.

  • At first: Create a backup of your blog. This enables you to rollback your changes in case of errors.
  • Simply unzip the update package and transfer its contents to your server. Overwrite existing files.

That’s it. If everything worked correctly, the FlatPress backend (Maintain -> Check for updates) displays “You have FlatPress version 1.1”.
