It has been about four months since Share Juice Pro 1.0 was launched. The success of Share Juice Pro was instantaneous not only because of the features that it had but also wide acclamation by some top bloggers.
Since then Share Juice Pro has grown a lot with new functionalities added with time. Let us look at what is new in Share Juice Pro 2.0.

Auto upgrade your plugin
Previously when I released a new version, you had to go through a tedious process of deleting the old version and adding a new one. Now instead of that , you only upload the Share Juice Pro 2.0 once and the updates notifications occur automatically.
You can either check them manually or they are checked once a day from the time you last logged on to admin panel.
This system works independently of the in built wordpress system but you don’t need to learn anything new to upgrade your plugin. The upgrade happens through normal wordpress process that you are used to.
Share Juice Pro 2.0 prevents conflict with other plugins
Previously Share Juice Pro had a few conflicts with other plugins. Now these conflicts have been resolved. There will probably be no more conflicts with other plugins as appropriate name-space has been added to global variables, class names and css identfiers. That means these names will start with either share_juice_ or share-juice- .
Share Juice Pro 2.0 is more stable
The issues identified in Share Juice Pro 1.0 have been resolved. This has made Share Juice Pro 2.0 far more stable than 1.0.
In the end
Share Juice Pro has undergone a tremendous change from its first version. I have spent a lot of time in improving the design and usability. If you do find minor bugs you can let me know via support link after login. I hope you enjoy using it .
