IM Online v3.4b Released
February 28, 2007
WordPress’ most popular IM status plugin has made it the grand old age of v3.4. The latest version is the result of a fast run of development following the rewrite for v3.0 and brings added stability, intelligence and accuracy to your online status notifications.
New to the v3.x branch
- Status checking now carried out within the plugin, providing for caching of status and intelligent server switching on failure.
- Improved reliability, auto-selects servers based on previous success in getting a positive reponse (online/offline).
- No delay to display online status on the page
- Up to 7 accounts for display, configurable order
Version 3.4b specifically addresses a number of early implementation bugs and improves on the intelligence in the status-server switching code. IM Online now remembers which servers are most likely to give good online/offline responses and automatically uses them next time – saving checking time and preventing poor results.
Comments and suggestions welcome as always! Thankyou for helping make IM Online one of the most popular WordPress plugins around.
