An update on MailPoet 3
We know that we’ve been quiet about our progress with MailPoet 3. Since we’ve received so many questions about it, we thought we’d let you know how it’s coming along.
The good news is that the MailPoet Sending Service has been completed! Thanks to stellar work by our team (and to our courageous volunteers who signed up to be our guinea pigs), we’ve worked through the challenges and issues, and now, finally(!) we’re done! Don’t get too excited yet though, as it won’t be launched until we release the entire MailPoet 3 package later this year.
Sorry to those who signed up and didn’t get into our beta sending service trial. We had an overwhelming number of people put their names forward and we simply could not fit everyone into the trial.
Our core focuses for MailPoet 3 are reliability, speed, and productivity. We want to ensure that our users have the best experience and that MailPoet works well, right out of the box, on whatever hosting you have. Of course, this takes time, so we want to test, test and test again to make sure everything is perfect. As of this point, we’re on schedule. Very, very soon, you’ll be able to create newsletters much more quickly and get back to what you do best – creating awesome content.
We’re also trying extra hard to make MailPoet more useful than normal. This means having a feature-rich plugin that makes your life easier while also giving you all the tools you’ll need to create well-designed, beautiful, and mobile-friendly newsletters. We’ve also added little improvements, like integrating our support pages into the plugin, which means you don’t have to leave your site to get help.
All of these things take time and we hope you understand that we want to release a quality product, which is why it’s taking us a little longer.
Right now, we’ve completed all the big testing and we’re now getting down to the nitty-gritty bits. Refining, shall we say. We’re on target to beta test in December, which we’re super anxious to begin.
Tautvidas, star developer of the MailPoet 3 editor says:
As far as features go, we wanted to allow users to have more control over the style and design on their newsletters, with the introduction of with multi-column layouts and more types of content blocks like html buttons and spacers. Although there’s lots of new options, the new editor will remain just as easy to use (if not easier) but will work noticeably quicker than before.
We know that so many of you want to see MailPoet 3 released. Trust us, no-one’s more keen on seeing it leave MailPoet Towers than us. We’re all really grateful for your support and also your patience. It’s coming soon-ish. We promise.
