Well, I had Verse-O-Matic running pretty well with the 3.1.0 release. There have been quite a few downloads and I have seen it popping up on sites around the blogosphere. Thanks for support! It’s nice to see the work getting used out there.
Now, I have somewhat neglected VOM for a few months for a number of reasons… I’ve moved, both physically (new house) and virtually (new domain); I’ve been preparing for a summer missions trip; and I’ve been putting a tremendous amount of work into the WP-Members plugin. WP-Members finally seems to be stable enough to leave alone for now so I’ve moved on to working on some more plugins, some of which will become modules for WP-Members.
But back to Verse-O-Matic…
I’ve made some updates. Not major enough to jump a full version, but we are now at 3.3.0 as a beta release. The key updates are:
- Verse-O-Matic now works as a widget with widget-enabled themes.
- I’ve combined the admin file and the plugin file so it is now all self-contained in one file.
- Lastly, I’ve set up a demo site for the Verse-O-Matic at http://butlerblog.com/vom-demo/
I’ve got so much in the hopper lately with plugin development that each plugin will ultimately end up with their own full site and that will likely become the repository for all things related to that plugin, rather than mixing it up with the general blog. That should make the blog better for content readers, and the plugin users will be happy with their own area.
That’s all for now. The VOM 3.3.0b beta preview is downloadable here. It’s pretty stable so feel free to use it. Upgrades from 3.0.0 (ONLY!) still need the upgrade script. Everyone else, just overwrite verse-o-matic.php with the new file and you should be good to go (vom-admin.php can be deleted, but doesn’t have to be).
