blog releaseThe newest version of PayToUpgrade, version 1.6, is now available (JED Listing). This release has numerous enhancements and continues the march of PayToUpgrade in being the easiest way to charge users for features and permissions on your site, and for adding payments to 3rd party components like Mosets Tree, HotProperty, JomSocial, Agora, and more!

The biggest enhancement is the ability for a user to easily extend their upgrade without having to let it expire first. This allows a site owner to help prevent listings from going unpublished, maintain a steady revenue, and keep your users more engaged in your site. In addition, PayToUpgrade has also been updated to fully utilize Joomla's language files, so each page can be easily translated to your language of choice. Additionally, by request of users (where we get many of our development ideas) enhanced filtering options and ease-of-navigation features have been added in the front-end views.

Multiple other features and bug-fixes can be seen in the PayToUpgrade changelog. Or, read on to read about all the new features and the plans for the next version(s) of PayToUpgrade!
