Unified Changelog for s2Member & s2Member Pro v190608-RC
(s2Member Framework) PayPal Integration Update: PayPal deprecated the subscription modification button. Using the old possible values for this, now gives an error on PayPal's site. This button has been removed from the PayPal Standard integration in s2Member. Props to Tim for reporting it, see forum thread 5861, and issue #1157.
(s2Member Framework) Bug Fix: PayPal would sometimes return the customer without the Custom Value expected by s2Member, incorrectly triggering an error. A small delay has now been added when needed to wait for PayPal to provide the missing value, so that the customer is met with the correct success message on return. Props to Josh Hartman for his help. See forum thread 5250.
(s2Member) Bug Fix: Google's URL shortening service has been discontinued. The s2Member integration with it was removed in this release. Props to Felix Hartmann for reporting it.
(s2Member) Feature Enhancement: The popular URL shortening services have been abused in spam emails, and this can cause your site's emails with shortened signup URLs to end up in the spam folder. It's now possible to disable URL shortening when trying to avoid this problem. Props to Felix Hartmann for suggesting it. See forum thread 5697.
(s2Member Pro) New Feature: It is now possible to use a custom URL shortener other than the defaults in the s2Member Framework. This is particularly useful to use YOURLS for your links, making them unique to your site, looking more professional and avoiding the spam filters issue mentioned above. For more info see this forum post.
Please note that when this version leaves beta and an official release is made, the WordPress Plugin Updater will automatically detect the new version on WordPress.org and ask you to upgrade. If you're using s2Member Pro, you will also be asked to complete an upgrade of the s2Member Pro Add-On right after you upgrade the s2Member Framework. For more information, please review Automatic Updates Through WordPress (Recommended).
