Easy Property Listings 2.0 new features which required a complete re-write of core code

Its taken us a bit longer than expected to release this latest version of Easy Property Listings as we had to re-write several files that handled the hundreds of meta variables… a major clean up has taken place which will allow for faster incremental updates.

In the previous release, custom meta values were loaded just before the template file and stored in hundreds of variables. The old listing-meta.php file has been moved to a compatibility folder so you should not have any issues updating your sites to 2.0

Full list of changes can be found here.
