Subscribe Forms w/o Page Refresh + New reCAPTCHA - Mailster v.1.4
Today we have released Mailster v1.4 - we share the highlights below.
Subscribe Forms Without Page Refresh
All subscribe/unsubscribe forms do no longer require a page reload in order to submit the data.
This makes the process smoother and better integrates the process into your site's layout.
Requested by many of our users, we have finally replaced the old reCAPTCHA version through the new one-click-captcha.
This replaces the previous reCAPTCHA captcha protection which is no longer included in Mailster. Site owners will have to get new reCAPTCHA API Keys from Google and store them in Mailster's configuration in order to take advantage of the new captcha.
Ready for Joomla 2.5 - 3.8.0
Our new release not only (still) supports Joomla 2.5, but also all Joomla 3 versions up to the recently released Joomla 3.8.

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.
