We are very excited to announce that the latest version of SendPress, 0.8.8, has added Double Opt-in, one of our most requested features. With the addition of Double Opt-in when someone subscribes to your newsletter from your site, they will be sent a confirmation email that includes a link to confirm their subscription. The Double Opt-in email message is sent using the default newsletter template on your site and the text of the message is completely customizable.
For the complete list of changes in the latest release, check out the change log at WordPress.org.
We are also very excited to share that the next release of the SendPress plug-in will be our Pro version. It will include lots of features not found in the free version as well as Premium Support. It will also be available for 50% off until the 1.0 version is released early next year.
We hope you are enjoying using SendPress as much as we are enjoying making it! Keep an eye out for a follow-up email in a few weeks announcing more details of SendPress Pro.
