NextGEN Pro 1.0.17 is now available for all Pro members as an auto-update in your WordPress admin.

However, there was a hiccup in our auto updater following version 1.0.10, so if the auto updater is not working please log into your account and download the latest version 1.0.17 which contains the fixed auto updater. You can either delete NextGEN Pro and re-install it within WordPress, or replace the folder via FTP.  Either way you won't lose your galleries. You might have to turn on the Pro Lightbox once more if you are already using it.
