Weekly WordPress News: Realtime Backups, Plugin for Theme Shops, Transparency Report.

What stood out to me this week is an announcement from iThemes that they are launching Stash which is a live backup solution for their BackupBuddy plugin. It aims to take the burdon of running backups off your hosting company and use their infrastructure to do so. This is great news for people on shared hosting, I’ve run into this problem over and over while running WPLift Support, some backup plugins will just not run as they require cpu and memory resources which the host denies them due to overcrowding the servers and limiting what each person can use.

Something else I noticed this week, is that Justin Tadlock has released his first commercial plugin, named ThemeDesigner, it makes providing WordPress themes for download and sale easy for theme shops by creating some custom post types to handle information about the theme and also pulls data from the WordPress directory related to your theme, like star ratings, download count etc.
