Twitter Tools 1.5b1

I’ve got a new version of Twitter Tools ready to test. This version has a number of changes, including one that has been very frequently requested:

  • Weekly digests! This needs a good deal of testing, help us find bugs
  • Ability to exclude @replies from daily and weekly digests and blog posts
  • Updates to match Twitter API changes so that “in reply to” links are properly created
  • A bunch of little things I’m forgetting now :)

Weekly digests is a rather complicated feature to build, and took a good chunk of time. Luckily, we had a development sponsor for this feature, who I will thank properly in the final release (once I receive permission to give them credit).

I realize that version 1.2 never got to a final release version, but we had an opportunity to get these features built, so I took advantage of it.

Finding time to test, package and release plugins has been a bit challenging of late.1 Hopefully I’ll have more time to get things pushed out going forward.

The download and more information are available on my WordPress Plugins page.

If you have any trouble with this, please open a thread in the WP Support Forums and send me the link.

UPDATE: looks like some PHP 5 specific code (a try/catch) snuck in here. If your server uses PHP 4, I recommend waiting until the next beta release.
