Our free plugin, ZM AJAX Login & Register on WordPress.org has been updated to 1.0.9. If you’ve used our plugin in the past, be sure to update to the latest release as it covers major bug fixes and enhancement.
1.0.9 Updates and Bug Fixes in a Nutshell for Our WordPress Login Register Plugin
Prior to 1.0.9, our last update of ZM AJAX Login & Register was sometime in December 2014. Since then, we’ve focused our energies on providing support for our ALR Pro and developing our new plugin, Carrier – An email subscription plugin for WordPress.
We’ve supported issues reported via wordpress.org, and support forum for both ALR plugins (free and Pro). This May 8th, we released our latest update for our FREE ZM AJAX Login & Register plugin in WordPress.org and included some of the issues, concerns and bugs sent to us.
Here is a list of all issues addressed in 1.0.9, which you may also view in the official changelog:

ZM AJAX Login & Register Plugin life and sustainability
One interesting side note about the latest release for our FREE version, is that a few days before the 1.0.9 release we began to receive email communication from users who indicated that the Facebook login/registration was no longer working. If it was not for users communicating this critical compatibility issue, we would not have addressed it so soon. As we learned, the API slightly changed, and the way the plugin used to communicate with Facebook’s API changed.
Also, we’re especially thankful for the folks that translate the plugin and make it accessible for WordPress members around the world. The 1.0.9 version added Romanian, German and Italian. Special thanks to Jonas, Dumutri, and Francesco.
