After a reasonable amount of time with this system running on various live sites without any issues, it's time to go Gold 🎉

This version fixes a pain point where the "Test Digest" feature would respect the digest's mail queue setting, which doesn't really make sense. The test email will now send instantly.


Below is the info block regarding the Digest changes, for the last time:

As mentioned in the previous update, this change now implements the "Activity Summary" feature into the Digest. If you have any add-ons, official or 3rd party, that adds new activity summary sections, they will now work in DB Mail's digest with no action required on our part.

In order to implement this, you must go to the new "Digest sections" page and add the sections, similar to how you add activity summary sections to XF's default activity summary email. If you do not do this, the digest will not send.

If you installed the previous update that removed the Digest feature, your users' subscription / frequency preferences will have been lost. You may be able to restore these if you have an earlier backup and feel comfortable running SQL queries, though this is not something support will be able to cover.

Beta 3 onwards will focus on addressing whatever feedback you may have for the new system, as well as fixing bugs, before 4.6.0 will be officially released.

This version restores the Digest feature.

Firstly, I want to apologise for how this happened and how I handled this. I did not adequately communicate my plans to remove this feature, and as a result I did not give people a chance to voice their feedback. I arrogantly assumed that people used Digests in an entirely different way (as a way to bring back old, lapsed users), and I did not consider that people might have purchased Mail exclusively for this feature.

To everyone affected by this: I'm sorry. I will do better in the future.
Going forward, if I ever think a XenForo feature supersedes an add-on feature, I will post my plans to remove the feature as an update in the resource @ XenForo.com.

Secondly, I'd like to share the roadmap for the Digest feature going forward.
Beta 1: Restoration of the Digest feature as it was in v4.4
Beta 2: Replace the current "Content type" sections with a custom implementation of the Activity Summary sections
Beta 3: Address feedback with the new "Content type" sections

The reason for replacing the existing "Content type" section with an implementation of "Activity Summary" sections is that not only will it better support core XenForo / official add-ons, but other 3rd party add-ons will likely add support for the "Activity Summary" feature going forward. Being able to automatically support this in DB Mail would be a net benefit.

Unfortunately I cannot give an ETA for when Beta 2+ will be released, since it's going to be a significant amount of work.

This version fixes a minor issue with the mail log tracker, where a "Duplicate key x-x for key PRIMARY" could be generated in certain scenarios. This bug did not impact the main functionality of the add-on.

!!! THIS VERSION REQUIRES XENFORO 2.2.0 AND PHP 7.2.0 !!!

This version contains coding style updates and changes for XenForo 2.2.0 / PHP 7.2.0.

The "Digest" feature has been removed, as XenForo 2.2 has an "Activity summary" feature which will be much more widely supported by 3rd parties, and contains many of the same features.

Furthermore, a bug that could have affected 3rd party add-on compatibility has been resolved.

This version is flagged as a Beta version as it has not been tested on a live site.


Complete Change Log

Feature: Add support for LinkableInterface
Change: Removed Digest feature, as it has been superseded by the "Activity Summary" feature in XenForo 2.2
Change: Update internal functions to follow new XenForo 2.1 / 2.2 coding standards
Fix: Fix permissions sometimes not rebuilding when upgrading
Fix: Fix method visibility override
Update highlights

There have been no changes since Beta 1, so please find the release notes for v4.4.0 below:

----

This version adds a single major new feature; the ability to limit the maximum amount of emails your forum sends in an hour.
To be clear, this affects all email across the whole of your XenForo installation, so long as all 3rd party add-ons use XF's own email feature.
This means if you are running your site on a shared host, or your web host is limiting the amount of email sent, you can now effectively control this within XF.

Given that this feature touches upon functionality we have no control over (email sent by XF & other add-ons), this feature is disabled by default and is why this version is flagged as a Beta version.

It has been successfully running on another website for almost a full month now, but a sample size of one isn't exactly statistically significant 😅
