- Added a role editor. You can assign/remove role capabilities, create custom roles, delete roles, and more. This is a new and complex feature. If you notice any bugs or other issues, please report them.
- Added the ability to add custom CSS to the WordPress admin. To enter your CSS code, go to the “Tweaks” tab and find the new “Admin CSS” section. You can add multiple CSS snippets and enable/disable each snippet for specific roles or users.
- Added a “reset permissions” toolbar button. It resets all menu permissions and visibility settings for the selected role or user to the defaults. This doesn’t affect custom permissions applied by other plugins. To display the new button, click the “V” button on the right side of the toolbar.
- Added “Title” and “Content Editor” options to the “Meta Boxes” tab. They let you hide the post title field and the main post editor, respectively.
- Added a the ability to hide specific Gutenberg blocks from roles or users. This feature is in the “Tweaks” tab.
- Added an option to hide the Gutenberg options menu. This is the “more tools & options” menu that you can open by clicking the three vertical dots in the top right corner of the editor.
- Hiding the “Format” and “Publish” meta boxes now also hides the corresponding rows in Gutenberg’s “Status & Visibility” panel: “Post Format” and “Publish”.
- Fixed admin notices being briefly visible even when the “hide all admin notices” option was enabled.
- Added a compatibility workaround for MailPoet 3. Custom menu colors and FontAwesome icons will now show up properly on MailPoet’s admin pages.
- The hidden “getting started” menu item created by the plugin Extended Widget Options will no longer become visible when you activate Admin Menu Editor.
- Slightly reduced the chance of encountering a race condition when saving meta box settings.
- Reduced the amount of space used by plugin visibility settings. This change will take effect the next time you save those settings.
- Extended the “compress menu configuration data” feature to use ZLIB compression in addition to menu data restructuring. This greatly decreases the amount of data stored in the database, but increases decompression overhead. Configuration compression is disabled by default. You can enable it in the “Settings” tab.
