GeN4 0.70 Released
April 13, 2010

Hello Everyone,

We had planned to release GeN4 0.60.2 and release 0.70 later, but instead we decided it would be better for the customers to receive 0.70. This version of the script is to be considered close to perfect, issues that have been reported have been addressed, new features added, new security implemented, and the script organization has also been improved. This version has been thoroughly tested and thus should be very close to bug free, if not bug free.

Some great features have been added, including maintenance mode for your website , easily changing site logo , website statistics that can be enabled/disabled, and your site’s ranking at a glance. All new functions are fully implemented in the admin area.

As usual, our customers can find complete change log notes included in this update, as well as instructions for updating their websites.

Thank you for your patience and help.
