New AW_All extension – please upgrade

As a reaction to the April 6 incident aheadWorks releases a new version of AW_All extension which comes with every extension you buy from our store. As promised, now all remote content is stored in a CDN, what makes it 100% failsafe and much faster to load due to the distributed content nature.

We recommend everyone using our free or paid extensions to download and install the new version of the software. The upgrade is as simple as unzippping and overwriting all the files from the package to your store folder on the server – no more actions needed. Use this link to download.
