- Version 7 will make use of another plugin Shortcake that adds a What You See Is What You Get interface to the [arve] shortcode.
- New catch all shortcode:
[arve url="https://youtu.be/yr0lQJiO3-w"]. This take urls instead if IDs and chooses the privider by itset. This is for two main reasons: 1. It makes it way easier for ARVE to use the Shortcode UI plugin with just one shortcode instead of a single one for every provider. 2. Making the shortcode decide what the provider is has advantages when using ARVE problematically, it was actually a user suggestion. It should have been always this way. Old shortcodes will still work for compatibility reasons but there there is no UI to create them anymore and its discouraged to use them for new videos.
- SEO friendly video embedding with schema.org data added to the your video embeds.
- A lot of code improvements.
