We are happy to announce the release of iDevAffiliate 8.1. This is really a maintenance release with some small bug fixes and a few new feature enhancements. The primary motive for this release is to make iDevAffiliate PHP 5.5 compliant. With this new release comes a new requirement. iDevAffiliate now requires PHP 5.3 or higher whereas the old requirements were simply 5.0 or higher. Most servers already have PHP 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 enabled and this shouldn’t be an issue but before upgrading your system, please confirm with your web hosting provider and/or server admin.
How To Upgrade!
The upgrade is currently available for you in the client area on our website. Please review the PDF document (button below) for step-by-step upgrade instructions from iDevAffiliate 8.0 to 8.1.
The download package available in your account after purchase already includes the 8.1 installation package.

We have added time zones. Prior to the 8.1 release, any time stamp on a traffic log or commission was based on the local server time. So if you are in PST and your server is located in the EST time zone, you would see EST times. That is now resolved with the ability to set your time zone.
Payout levels can now use a fractional percent! This has been a long awaited update with several requests for it. You now have it available in the 8.1 release.
We’ve updated the Affiliate Training Library with more videos. Added to the collection is 25 more videos and two new categories.. Google+ and Pinterest marketing. We will have Facebook and Twitter added soon.
