== Changelog ==

= [4.19.2] 22.09.2015 =
* Fix: multiple default roles assignment did not work under the multisite environment, when user was created from front-end by WooCommerce, etc.
* Update: the translation text domain was changed to the plugin slug (user-role-editor) for the compatibility with

= [4.19.1] 20.08.2015 =
* Default role value has not been refreshed automatically after change at the "Default Role" dialog - fixed.
* More detailed notice messages are shown after default role change - to reflect a possible error or problem.
* Other default roles (in addition to the primary role) has been assigned to a new registered user for requests from the admin back-end only. Now this feature works for the requests from the front-end user registration forms too.

= 4.19 =
* 28.07.2015
* It is possible to assign to the user multiple roles directly through a user profile edit page. 
* Custom SQL-query (checked if the role is in use and slow on the huge data) was excluded and replaced with WordPress built-in function call. [Thanks to Aaron](
* Bulk role assignment to the users without role was rewritten for cases with a huge quant of users. It processes just 50 users without role for the one request to return the answer from the server in the short time. The related code was extracted to the separate class.
* Code to fix JavaScript and CSS compatibility issues introduced by other plugins and themes, which load its stuff globally, was extracted into the separate class.
* Custom filters were added: 'ure_full_capabilites' - takes 1 input parameter, array with a full list of user capabilities visible at URE, 'ure_built_in_wp_caps' - takes 1 input parameter, array with a list of WordPress core user capabilities. These filters may be useful if you give access to the URE for some not administrator user, and wish to change the list of capabilities which are available to him at URE.
* Dutch translation was updated. Thanks to Gerhard Hoogterp.

= 4.18.4 =
* 30.04.2015
* Calls to the function add_query_arg() is properly escaped with esc_url_raw() to exclude potential XSS vulnerabilities. Nothing critical: both calls of add_query_arg() are placed at the unused sections of the code.

* 24.02.2015
* Fixed PHP fatal error for roles reset operation.

= 4.18.2 =
* 06.02.2015
* New option "Edit user capabilities" was added. If it is unchecked - capabilities section of selected user will be shown in the readonly mode. Administrator (except superadmin for multisite) can not assign capabilities to the user directly. He should make it using roles only.
* More universal checking applied to the custom post type capabilities creation to exclude not existing property notices.
* Multisite: URE's options page is prohibited by 'manage_network_users' capability instead of 'ure_manage_options' in case single site administrators does not have permission to use URE.
* URE protects administrator user from editing by other users by default. If you wish to turn off such protection, you may add filter 'ure_supress_administrators_protection' and return 'true' from it.
* Plugin installation to the WordPress multisite with large (thousands) subsites had a problem with script execution time. Fixed. URE does not try to update all subsites at once now. It does it for every subsite separately, only when you visit that subsite.
* Fixed JavaScript bug with 'Reset Roles' for FireFox v.34.

= 4.18.1 =
* 14.12.2014
* As activation hook does not fire during bulk plugins update, automatic plugin version check and upgrade execution were added.

= 4.18 =

= 4.17.1 =
* 01.10.2014
* Bug fix for the PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function is_plugin_active_for_network(). It may take place under multisite only, 
in case no one of the other active plugins load file with this function already before User Role Editor v. 4.17 tries to call it.

= 4.17 =
* 01.10.2014
* Multisite (update for cases when URE was not network activated): It is possible to use own settings for single site activated instances of User Role Editor. 
  Earlier User Role Editor used the settings values from the main blog only located under "Network Admin - Settings".
  Some critical options were hidden from the "Multisite" tab for single site administrators and visible to the superadmin only. 
  Single site admin should not have access to the options which purpose is to restrict him.
  Important! In case you decide to allow single site administrator activate/deactivate User Role Editor himself, setup this PHP constant at the wp-config.php file:
  Otherwise single site admin will not see User Role Editor in the plugins list after its activation. User Role Editor hides itself under multisite from all users except superadmin by default.

* Hungarian translation was added. Thanks to Németh Balázs.
* Dutch translation was added. Thanks to Arjan Bosch.

= 4.15 =
* 08.09.2014
* Rename role button was added to the URE toolbar. It allows to change user role display name (role ID is always the same). Be careful and double think before rename some built-in WordPress role.

= 4.14.2 =
* 18.07.2014
* The instance of main plugin class User_Role_Editor is available for other developers now via $GLOBALS['user_role_editor']

what user capability restrict access to what admin menu item.
