Job Manager 0.5 Released

AKA: “The Mother of All Changelogs” release. Go on, look at it. It’s huge.

This has been the first time I’ve made beta releases on the wp.org system, and I think it’s been quite successful. I’ve had some good feedback over the past few days, and fixed several bugs, without affecting user’s production systems. Naturally, I welcome any comments on how you felt it went.

The big changes are:

  • You can now allow or require users to register before they can submit an application. This will be the basis for a pile of new features coming up over the next few months.
  • You could always send email to applicants – now these emails are stored, and along with records of who they were sent to.
  • Application ratings – it’s now easy to keep track of who your star applicants are. You can also filter your list of applications based on their rating, for an easy list of who you need to call back.
  • A lot of people were asking how to find the links to the categories, so I’ve added links to each category on the Settings page. I’ll be adding more methods to find your way to the categories in later versions.

I’ve set up GlotPress to handle my translations, if you’d like to have Job Manager in your language, please contact me, so I can create an account for you. If you’re interested, I only change or add strings in feature releases (0.3, 0.4, 0.5, etc). I don’t make any changes or additions in bug fix releases (0.4.1, 0.4.2, 0.4.3, etc).

The next feature release, version 0.6, will include lots of small features that people have requested. If there’s a small change you’d like to see in Job Manager, check out the Roadmap and see if it’s there. If not, submit a feature request!

  1. Gary,

    What a fantastic work you are performing, thanks! After implementing version 0.8 (this one includes all my production features), I will donate.

    Keep up doing the good work. I made a feature request which enables employers to search for resume’s even though they have no job listed. This turns the system the other way around (now applicants can only look for jobs).

    Keep up the good work!
