Would love some more details on any SEO Press improvements please.
What has changed here?

Its the same as yoast and rankmath, We use their filters to pass the actual layout data to their analysis tools on the wp-admin post edit page. By default they just look at the normal wp content.


Just started using 2.5 on a new build. So, so useful having the template shortcodes on display and duplicate option for this particular client and job. Thank you for all your work. I love it,

I was just doing this client a personal video explaining child columns and I stumbled a bit when I showed them this on the Outline Panel. Child columns there are called a sub-columns which makes perfect sense in that context, but after showing them you can spot a child column because it has a parent it seemed odd.

Not saying I think it is wrong - just what struck me at the time. Not usual for me to get into this with clients, but this one has had a few BB sites going back 6 years.
