Email Users is a plugin I have used for a number of years on the MacDolphins web site. After contributing a number of patches to the plugin, in late May of 2012 I was invited to be a plugin contributor which I accepted. Being a plugin contributor allows me to commit changes to the Email Users plugin Subversion repository and release updates.
I have been responsible (both good and bad) for changes and enhancements in the 4.x releases. The changes are documented in the Change Log but in summary, here are the key new features:
- New menus which are compliant with the WordPress 3.x menu API
- Re-architected Options model which is compliant with the new Options API.
- New Users Settings page which allow bulk control over user settings for notifications and mass email.
- Additional control over the default settings for all users.
You can download Email Users from the WordPress Plugin Repository or install it from the WordPress Dashboard. I try to monitor the Support Forum and address any issues people encounter with the plugin.
