Stealth Update v2.0.1

I’d like to announce the official release of the updated Stealth Update plugin (v2.0.1) for WordPress.

Adds the ability to update a post without updating the post_modified timestamp for the post.

Recommended major update! Highlights: re-implemented; add class for CSS customizations; full localization support; verified WP 3.0 compatibility; dropped compatibility with version of WP older than 2.9.

For more details, instructions, screenshots, and the download link, visit the plugin’s official homepage at :

Comments welcome on this post for this version of the plugin. Comments will be closed once this release has been superseded by another.

just wanted to hint you at the fact, that a switch in order to set the default value for all posts, certain taxonomies and/or authors could make sense. nice work anyway!

This is an awesome plugin! Sorry I am not a PHP developer, or I would modify it to allow defaulting to Stealth mode set ON (checkbox checked). I edit my posts a lot and often after ‘published’ and would prefer only the final-final version effectively ‘published’ to feeds and such. Please consider allowing a default of stealth mode for all new posts/pages etc. My team often forgets to categorize let along mark the post stealth.
