CBSubs 2.0 is here with new powerful features!

9 years 8 months ago - 9 years 8 months ago #199701 by beat
This thread discusses the announcement CBSubs 2.0 is here with new powerful features! .

We're pretty proud here of CBSubs 2.0: We have been working on CB 2.0 and on CBSubs 2.0 all last months in parallel, and have used new engineering techniques to achieve a few very general-purpose engines that we are using in both CBSubs 2.0 and in CB 2.0.

We are using CBSubs 1.3 Beta and RC releases (and now CBSubs 2.0) since a few months. There has been a test-team for CBSubs 1.3 Beta releases and for RC releases (which were also available to Developer membership level here). And there is the CB Team who also tested a lot. All of this allowed us to test live and fix many issues to make sure that CBSubs 2.0.0 is not the most advanced memberships system, but also the most stable one.

I would like to thank very much the CBSubs customers and the Developer Members for their support, as well as individual customers who contributed to the development cost of new payment gateways.

Special Thanks also to Kyle who developed new payment gateways and integration plugins.

Finally special thanks also to Nick, who wrote over 100 new pages to the CBSubs manual, documenting new features and new use-cases. The manual is now 600 (!) pages long, and is really inspiring new business ideas and models of things that could not be done before.

We have tried to make CBSubs a complete solution for the sale and marketing of web content, and we are very happy with the result. We are using it here very successfully, and the new features of CBSubs 2.0 have helped us improve the service, customer satisfaction and the net result significantly.

A *lot* of the engines which run CBSubs 2.0 automations are now flowing into our next major release: Community Builder 2.0, and we're very excited by this.

Ok, for those looking at the detailed list of new features and of bug fixes, here it is: a whooping 67 new features and 92 bug-fixes for CBSubs 1.2.2, and 14 bug-fixees for CBSubs 1.3 RC releases:

Does CB Subs 2.0 work with and ARB payments? I've made the upgrade to CB 1.8 and CB Subs 2.0 but it appears I still am not able to recieve the IPN's for my existing subscribers thus all memberships auto expire unintentially.

CBSubs ARB (including "silent posts") works fine in CBSubs 2.0, and is not a new feature of 2.0.

Please note that this is the announcement discussion thread and a not technical support sub-forum. Also please do not double-post, (you already posted correctly here: ). Thank you for your understanding.
