- Test the plugin up to WordPress 6.2
- Add support for WordPress 6.1
- Remove comment_exists check for importing comments. In testing, I found no duplicated comments via this method, and it’s extremely slow on large imports. If this check is needed, then define(‘WP_MT_IMPORT_ALLOW_DUPE_COMMENTS’, false);
- Disable cache invalidation and both term and comment counting during import, for speed. Re-enable them after import.
- Disable autocommit during import, commit once every 500 posts and after complete import. Huge speed boost. To force autocommit to be left alone, define(‘WP_MT_IMPORT_FORCE_AUTOCOMMIT’,true);
- String updates
- Use BASENAME, if present, as the slug for the post.
- Add check for WP_LOAD_IMPORTERS
- Initial release
