Mailster v1.3.2 released

We are happy to announce the release of Mailster v1.3.2.

It is mainly a bugfix release but also brings various improvements for better performance, compatibility and usability.
Below some of the highlights, the full list can be found in the changelog.

CSV Import

We made our CSV import a little smarter so that the algorithm detects the most typical file formats automatically.
Furthermore it warns the user when the CSV file is too large to be processed at once.

Performance Improvements

High traffic lists which have a send limit (like 100 emails per hour) in place may end up with larger email queues at any given time. In previous version that could lead to situations where the (daily / weekly / monthly) digests where not send out in the defined schedule.
To avoid this Mailster now alternates between sending emails and digests as a first step in each send run.

PHP 7.0 Compatibility

The PHP 7.0 version issues messages warning about functionality that may be unsupported in future versions.
These are not critical in any way but we made an effort to change the code to avoid the messages being issued.

Translation Updates

Because of a glitch, the German translation became unavailble in the last release.
Besides fixing this, the new release updates the French and Dutch translation.

Mailster - WordPress version available - WP Mailster

We are happy to report that Mailster now has a WordPress brother: WP Mailster

After 7 years of only offering our email discussion in the Joomla universe, we are happy to provide WordPress site owners a flexible mailing list solution, too!

Development for it started already in early 2016 and we had hoped to release it much earlier. While the core of Mailster and WP Mailster (especially all things related to the email handling) are very much the same, it proved challenging to replace the code base relying on Joomla since WordPress follows different development principles.

Beta testing was finally started in November 2016 with the help of a group of long time users of Mailster.

The first offical release happened right around Christmas 2016, the WP Mailster listing in the WordPress plugin repository went live on January 1st, 2017. A great way to start into the new year :-)

WP Mailster has its own version numbering (and Pro-product names) and will be released indepedently from Mailster. The feature set of WP Mailster is currently a bit smaller than of its older Joomla brother, but we will add those features in subsequent releases.

Needless to say we have no plans on stopping Mailster's development in the future!
We are dedicated to continuously improving both the Joomla and the WordPress product range in the coming years.

Mailster v1.3 - Moderation Mode & DMARC & More

Mailster v1.3 ReleasedToday we have released Mailster 1.3 which we consider a major version considering all the goodies that we introduced.

This post will take you through some of the highlights.

As always you find the full list of features, improvements and fixes in the changelog.

Moderation Mode (Business & Ultimate editions)

One of the features we were asked to implement again and again is a moderation mode.

This is especially useful for large discussion lists where the mailing list admin wants to ensure that the messages sent to the list are up to a certain standard.

moderation mode settingsMailster Business and Mailster Ultimate feature the new moderation mode that allows moderating

  • all messages or
  • only messages from a certain group of users
  • and/or auto-approving (white listing) the messages of other users.

The mailing list admin can easily accept/reject the messages by clicking the respective links in the notification emails sent to him or by doing this in the Mailster backend email archive.
