We are ready with a beta version for WPML 3.1.3. This release is a stability update for WPML. It closes a number of holes and includes overall improvements. WPML 3.1.3 goes into complete QA next week. We are releasing this beta, so that people who are facing problems due to resolved issues can use this version already.

Download and Update

This is still a beta version, so it’s not intended for everyone. If your site is impacted by a bug that’s fixed in this release, you can use this version to fix.

Before installing beta versions on your site, please make complete backup. This should include the files and database.

As a beta version, this update is only available by manual download and installation. To download, go to your WPML account and click on Downloads.

If you have a Multilingual CMS account, you will see a CMS Beta Package download. Download it and unzip. The download includes ZIP files of all of WPML’s components. You need to update all WPML components that you are using (it’s not possible to run a site with a mixture of old and new versions).

If you have a Multilingual Blog account, you will see a WPML Blog Beta download. You need to extract and upload this to your site to the plugins folder.

Schedule for the production version

WPML 3.2.3 is going into QA next week. This version received testing for all fixes, but not comprehensive testing “from scratch”. QA takes about 2 weeks to complete. Then, we will release the final WPML 3.2.3.
