GDPR Features - Mailster v1.5.0
We have just released Mailster v1.5 which brought many new features towards helping our customers to run their operations in a GDPR compliant way.
This post gives you an overview of the improvements, the full list of changes can be found in our Mailster v1.5.0 changelog entry.
Starting with this version, all the subscription actions are recorded to a log database. The idea is that this can serve the mailing list operators for audit purposes.
It stores subscription information like who joined when to which list using which email address (and IP address).

Mailster - WordPress version available - WP Mailster
We are happy to report that Mailster now has a WordPress brother: WP Mailster
After 7 years of only offering our email discussion in the Joomla universe, we are happy to provide WordPress site owners a flexible mailing list solution, too!
Development for it started already in early 2016 and we had hoped to release it much earlier. While the core of Mailster and WP Mailster (especially all things related to the email handling) are very much the same, it proved challenging to replace the code base relying on Joomla since WordPress follows different development principles.
Beta testing was finally started in November 2016 with the help of a group of long time users of Mailster.
The first offical release happened right around Christmas 2016, the WP Mailster listing in the WordPress plugin repository went live on January 1st, 2017. A great way to start into the new year :-)
WP Mailster has its own version numbering (and Pro-product names) and will be released indepedently from Mailster. The feature set of WP Mailster is currently a bit smaller than of its older Joomla brother, but we will add those features in subsequent releases.
Needless to say we have no plans on stopping Mailster's development in the future!
We are dedicated to continuously improving both the Joomla and the WordPress product range in the coming years.
