Admin Post Navigation v1.7

I’d like to announce the official release of the updated Admin Post Navigation plugin (v1.7) for WordPress.

Adds links to the next and previous posts when editing a post in the WordPress admin.

This is a recommended update from the previous release. Highlights: added support for localization, better post type label determination, improve UI (see updated screenshots), miscellaneous improvements, dropped pre-WP 3.0 compatibility, added verified WP 3.3 compatibility.

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 Comments will be closed once this release has been superseded by another.
