Last month we did a lot of preparation work on some exciting new features: SSH access and the ability to download backups. Also, we are preparing ourselves for the upcoming GDPR. An important feature has been published already in the control panel, the possibility to accept an improved processor agreement. Lastly, we worked on a number of bug fixes and improvements on the platform.
Change menu location of Savvii plugin
The Savvii plugin, which is provided with every WordPress site we host, received an update. We’ve merged a pull request we’ve received on Github to move the location of the plugin to the top menu in the wp-admin.
Started with requirement engineering for two new features
We started working on the requirements for two new features we're planning on releasing within the next couple of months. One feature will be the option to download backups from our control panel. The other one will be SSH access for all of our customers. It’s still very early in the process. Currently we are in the phase of requirement engineering and deciding how both features will look like on a high level. An estimation of the release data is not yet possible, so please keep an eye on these pages.
We now show a notification when you log into the Savvii control panel which asks you to view and accept our new processor agreement. As soon as you accept you won’t be notified again.
Bugfixes for Staging feature
We’ve fixed some bugs and made some first improvements on the recent released Staging feature. We now check available disk size before starting the proces of creating new staging site.
If you have any questions, let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Of course, we always strive to develop new features for you even faster. That is why we are looking for back-end developers for our team. Are you a back-end developer or do you know one? Please let us know!
