Wavatars 1.1.3

I guess I should have announced earlier, there is a new version of Wavatars that fixes the major problems with getting Gravatars and Wavatars to work together.

WordPress 2.5 is due out soon, and I’m very curious what that will do to my plugin. This new version of WordPress looks to be a pretty big jump, and I expect a lot of stuff to break in minor ways. Anyway, you can get the update if you use Wavatars on your blog.

    Yay, I get my Wavatar back! :-)

  2. Tango says:

    I find it interesting how the wavatars and gravatar disply differently in IE6 and IE7

    Also, I keep getting an error from any machine using IE6 that I can’t submit a comment, but the comments post anyway.

  3. Roleplay says:

    Probably related to PNG display in IE6… silly IE.

  4. Blurr says:

    I’ve never understood how version numbers are assigned. Is it arbitrary or are there rules programmers follow?

  5. Shamus says:

    Blur – Version numbers are usually three values, seperated by periods. The first number is the Major version number. The second is the Minor version number. The final is the “revision” number.

    * Increment the revision when you’re just fixing bugs or fine-tuning existing features.
    * Increment the minor number when you introduce a new feature.
    * Increment the major number when you make a large jump in features, re-write part of it, or make other sweeping changes.

    If I have to re-write wavatars for the new wordpress, I’ll probably advance the version number to 2.0.0 – and then if I have to fix a bug later I might make it 2.0.1

    That’s the general idea, anyway. These are not hard rules, more like guidelines anyway.

    Ah, kind of like the Pirate’s Code as laid down by the pirates Morgan and Bartholomew? :)

    Bilbo: No. The Code is the Law.

  8. Blurr says:

    Ah, I see. Thanks.

    I don’t really have anything relevant to say, except that I love my wavatar.
