We are glad to announce the release of version 2.0. In the process of development we decided to change the customfields information storage structure in the database. Thanks to this change search speed increased dramatically. The change of the database structure has lead to incompatibility between 2.0 and 1.x versions.
See the preview on our test site where we have 5000 products with 5 additional custom fields for each: DEMO 5000
What's new in v2.0.6:
* added an optionto change the name of every first (default) item in the dropdown menu separately in every custom field
* mechanism of folding/unfolding field values on clicking the field headline (the state is stored in cookies)
* field won't be displayed if all its values are not associated with any product and template of number of products = hidden
* fixed the search type 'AND' (use with caution, may decrease performance!)
* improved language constants processing in the module, plugin and admin panel
* fixed processing Tax/Datax conditions while using "default rules" (use with caution, may decrease performance!)
