This release has an option to use Date Popup from Date module for date entry fields. In order to use it Date module with allowed Date Popup should be installed. In Node Expire configuration section "Date popups" option should be selected under "Date values entry elements". This functionality is not available in Legacy mode.
Previous release 7.x-1.0-alpha3 had significant background changes, which allowed to fix a bunch of issues. The issues were automatically closed yesterday - in two weeks after the release. So, it is time to put 7.x-1.x branch of the modute to "beta" level. Current release 7.x-1.0-beta1 is the same as 7.x-1.0-alpha3 plus some basic automated testing.
This release has a new admin configuration section which is located in "Workflow" area under the Rules module configuration section. Deletion of node_expire record on every node update has been removed.
