Published my new plugin SAM Pro (Free Edition). This plugin is a successor of the Simple Ads Manager plugin. At first glance it might seem that plugin SAM Pro (Free Edition) is a repetition of his ancestor, but it’s not. The new plugin uses a different data structure that allows to increase its performance. In addition, increased security measures from possible hacking attacks. Also solved the problem of statistics and counting clicks.

New plugin is the replacement of the Simple Ads Manager. In other words, the development of Simple Ads Manager will not continue. I am not remove it from the repository only because there are a lot of servers running under PHP 5.2. SAM Pro requires PHP 5.3 and later.
