Patron Pro 1.5.1 update brings improved pledge/unlock handling.
Improved Pledge Handling
Patron Pro now has improved pledge handling when unlocking content. When your patrons try to unlock any content at your site, the grace period at Patreon for the payment method retries is now incorporated into pledge checking. The plugin will now allow access to the content for patrons who have their payment method declined until the grace period runs out. Doing this prevents your patrons from losing access to content as their payment methods are retried, which is a common occurrence.
Due to the importance of this, upgrading to 1.5.1 is strongly recommended as it could address such cases and reduce the patrons who are experiencing problems with accessing content.
Locked Post Interface Now Handles All Currencies
Now you can add any currency sign at your Patreon Settings menu in your WP admin and Patron Pro will correctly show that currency.

Updating Patron Pro is very easy:
If you see a notice that says new version is available for Patron Pro in your WordPress admin, just click to upgrade your installation. Patron Pro will do the rest. Upgrading requires having an active license which is saved in the Addons tab of your Patron Pro admin. If you recently activated your license, you may need to wait ~45 minutes for it to be recognized.
If you aren’t able to see any notice or updates, then you may need to do it manually once. To do that, just deactivate/delete Patron Plugin Pro by CodeBard in your WordPress plugin admin. Then download the latest version from your CodeBard account, and upload/install and activate the patron-plugin-pro.zip you just downloaded. Patron Pro will do the rest.
