Now you can add as many post embed blocks as you like.

1.0.5 – Social embeds and new post embeds UI
Social embeds: Now, when you paste a Twitter or YouTube link directly into the post editor, it formats automatically on email. We aren't able to get all meta data as we're limited to HTML and CSS. More social platforms coming soon.
Post embed block: Super excited about this. We've improved the UI for the post embed box. Now everything is WYSIWYG. No more clunky second list.
Bug fix for Campaign Monitor: Fixed a bug that caused newsletter to be sent to only one list when selecting multiple lists.
Bug fix for Sendinblue: Fixed a bug that caused sending newsletter to fail, because of an encoding issue.

1.0.4 – Post embeds
Post embed block: Great for weekly round up-type newsletters. Bulk add internal and external links.
When you add a new link, it auto-loads the post header, excerpt and featured image to save you lots of time.
There are also lots of styling options to help you stand out from the crowd.

1.0.3 – Strip default CSS
Strip Newsletter Glue’s default CSS: This is a feature for advanced users who want to completely remove all our CSS from their emails and replace it with their own.
In-line CSS: We’ve rebuilt our plugin so that all CSS is inserted inline. There are many advantages, including: we use less code (loads faster, cleaner, less chance of clipping) and forwarded emails retain their styling.
Preview email in new tab: Next to “Send test email” you’ll now find a “Preview email” button. This lets you quickly preview emails in your browser, instead of sending a test email every time.
Add text alignment in Callout cards: You can now align text in the settings side bar.
Campaign Monitor users must select a list ID before sending an email: Blank ID lists now cause an error message and sending is disabled. Previously, we allowed users to send emails without selecting a list. Emails would then get stuck on the backend as Campaign Monitor requires a list in order to send.
Bug fix for Mailchimp audiences: Previously only showed up to 10 audiences. We now show the maximum 1000 audiences.

1.0.2 – Double confirmation sending
Double confirmation: Send as newsletter checkbox. We’ve added a double confirmation when sending updated newsletters. Next to Your email is ready to publish notification, you’ll now see an additional checkbox.
Your workflow when publishing a new newsletter will remain the same. This new checkbox is automatically checked for you, but you can uncheck it.
However, your updating workflow is now improved. This new checkbox is un-checked for posts that are being updated. This solves the problem of saving an updated post and accidentally sending out a newsletter. Only check this box once you’re ready.
Subscriber forms: You can now add text beneath button
Subscriber forms: Added checkbox form field. Includes option to select additional list for checkbox. This is useful for GDPR, but can be used for other purposes.
Callout card: Added font color option.
Metadata: Read online is now automatically hidden from your blog, even if you’ve set the metadata block to show up in your blog.
Custom post types: Remove custom post types (CPTs) that are obviously not for posting content. Like oEmbeds, menus, custom CSS, custom fields, blocks, forms etc…
Metadata block was not showing reading time. After refresh, metadata block would ‘break’ and say that it was showing unexpected or invalid content. This is now fixed.
Pro plugin activation: Activating the pro plugin when the free plugin is still activated no longer causes a fatal error. Now, activating one Newsletter Glue plugin simply deactivates the other.
Pro plugin activation: In the newsletter theme designer, some of your selected styles were reset to default when you upgrade. This is now fixed.
Yoast duplicator plugin: If a post was previously published then duplicated using the Yoast Duplicate Post plugin, its published status will also show up in the duplicated post. This is now fixed.
Mailchimp font CSS: Link colour chosen in newsletter theme designer not showing up in emails for Mailchimp.
