Important key points:
+ Page drip - this will allow you to schedule (drip feed) your page content from number of days after registration or from a set date. You could create a years worth of content, schedule it all to release weekly or monthly or however you need to your paid subscribers.
+ Add multimedia on a page - You can now have both content & videos & audios all on the same page. You could then set up specific pages loaded with content, videos, audios & products as you need and drip feed it all according to your membership site needs.
+ Reduce clicking in navigation/create page - It's all now one easy to manage area to add or edit a page.
+ Create page in sequence, control page per membership, control page with a time set schedule. You can set your content to be released on specific dates (Dec 1st) or by the number of days after registration (31 days after sign up). We're working on also making it to work by number of days after date of upgrading as well.
+ Add group to create navigation block, flexible site navigation block. You can now separate your membership levels in navigation blocks in your main menus such as Free Members / Gold Members / Visitors and so forth.
+ Create subcategory on the fly, real time switching,changing page/category. When you create pages you can easily put them or change them wherever & whenever you want on your site as a main category or a subcategory using one click features.
===========> Goal Accomplished with this: To allow you to use one centralized area on your site to add video, audio & content and drip feed it for your members rather than having it set up on 3 or 4 different module areas. This not only makes it easier for you to set up and manage your content but makes it much easier for your members to find it all as well.

Audio / Video / Article / Product Manager (All 4 Modules)
+ Files are stored as tags to be used on page drip: audio tags, video tags, product tags. This is a wonderful feature that allows you to save every video you add into a 'title tag' stored in the system that you can just add on to your create page area with just a few simple clicks.
+ Unlimited subcategory in audio / video / article / product manager plugins. You can now have as many submenu categories as you like rather than be limited to just one level. Good for getting those longtail keywords set up on your sites for drilling down to specific keywords. Of course not only is this great for search engines but also for your vistors and members to find things quickly and easily if you have hundreds of videos, audios, products or articles on your site.
+ Amazon S3 supports for file storing. Amazon has a great service (you can see more here: http://aws.amazon.com/s3/ ) that lets you store all your videos or audios on their servers. So you could have hundreds of gigabites or even tetrabites of content stored on their servers and display it through your MemberSpeed powered pages. Awesome!
+ Unlimited file uploading, 4 ways uploading file : direct upload, url upload, ftp upload, amazon s3 upload. You now have the freedom to choose where you want to upload and store all your media files and have them displayed on your MemberSpeed pages from wherever they are! We understand some files can get very large - into the hundreds of gigabites nowadays and uploading via the built in uploader could sometimes not handle the size or not be compatiable with the server your MemberSpeed site was hosted on. Now you can overcome all these issues with this new feature.
+ Url protection, file can be hosted anywhere. Protect your files that your site visitors and members see while having them hosted anywhere you want now!
In the works: we are in beta testing of upgrading the Video & Audio players also. Potentially the upgrades will allow you to have video sharing features for social networking benefits and video advertising built in to better monitize your websites
