After months of development, Press Permit 1.0-beta is now available. This update includes a quite a bit of new functionality and conveniences, plus better overall integration with the wp-admin screens. See the new slideshow and release notes for details.
Role Scoper is not abandoned. Now that this Press Permit development cycle is done, I’ll be catching up on some RS support. For those interested in moving to the new platform, a Role Scoper to Press Permit import tool will be included with the 1.0 production release, probably within the next six weeks.
