Just wanted to give an update on BackupBuddy 3.0 that has been in the works for several months now.
We’ve been hard at work on the development of BackupBuddy 3.0 (code name Project Badger) and we’re proud to officially announce the release of BackupBuddy 3.0 Limited Beta to all of our PluginBuddy Developer Suite and Toolkit customers … because we know you love our products and will thoroughly test them.
BackupBuddy 3.0 includes some exciting new features, including “magic migration,” backup statistics, a new framework and extensive troubleshooting. Check out this blog post for the full list of new 3.0 features.
This customer group is among the first outside of our team and a few trusted individuals to get access to test BackupBuddy 3.0, so we’re asking for their feedback during this beta trial. While we’ve spent months testing BackupBuddy 3.0 internally, this feedback is extremely helpful to the release of BackupBuddy 3.0 to the general public.
We’re asking that these customers follow these steps to test BackupBuddy 3.0 and leave feedback:
- After logging into the iThemes Member Panel, scroll to the bottom of your list of subscription files. You’ll see “Project Badger” has been added to the list. Click this link to begin the download of BackupBuddy 3.0 Limited Beta.
- IMPORTANT: DO NOT TEST THIS SOFTWARE ON LIVE SITES. Feel free to test away on development environments such as test sites.
- We’ve created a forum specifically for BackupBuddy 3.0 beta feedback for you to share information about your testing experience. Please note anything that works differently than expected or was confusing.
- We’ll be pushing out automatic updates as we make adjustments from your feedback, so check back periodically to update “Project Badger” from your WordPress dashboard.
- The deadline for BackupBuddy 3.0 beta feedback is Wednesday, May 30th @ (5pm CDT).
Our hope is that we get great feedback to make sure the official public release of BackupBuddy 3.0 is rock solid. The faster and more thorough feedback we receive the faster we can get new versions coded and tested out into the wild!
(By the way – big huge kudos to Dustin Bolton, lead developer of BackupBuddy for tireless effort on Project Badger!)
