LearnDash 4.7 Announced. Releases Next Week.
LearnDash have announced that version 4.7 of the LMS for Wordpress plugin will be made available to download next week. The key new features of this release appear to include:
Course student limit - The ability to control how many users are assigned to a course at any one time.
Course start dates and end dates - For limited time release courses for specific cohorts
Course pre-selling - Providing the ability to publish visible courses and sell prior to start date (via LearnDash's own internal payment gateway mechanisms)
As well as some additional capabilities added to some popular actions, filters, and functions made available to developers.
It looks like 4.7 is being released publicly now across LearnDash's update network for all users.
What do we think about the new timed release and pre-sale features? A bit of a push away from the more robust WooCommerce payment processing framework which is a shame really.
