Tweet Display Back 2.1.3 Released

Tweet Display Back 2.1.3 has been released today and is now available for download.  This is a maintenance release which includes bug fixes only.  Also, this release has been tested and is fully compatible with Joomla! 2.5.

Changes since 2.1.2

This is a maintenance release improving the user experience by fixing bugs found and reported within the module.

A full list of changes is as follows:

  • Bug Fixes:
    • Access level for JElementVersion::$_name incorrect (Joomla! 1.5 only)
    • HTML Validation Issue
    • Remove duplicated CSS3 check


Tweet Display Back has a unique team of contributors.  Contributions have come in the form of provided code, translations, or external products.  I'd like to thank Open Translators for contributing the six additional translations that are available in the module, enhancing international support.  Next, I'd like to thank Jurian Even of Twentronix for helping develop version 2.0 and implementing the filtering feature.  The version check code is based on that found in the Construct Template Framework developed by Matt Thomas.  And finally, the color selection field is powered by the Joomla Color Picker extension developed by Spiral Scripts.

Future Development

As previously announced, future development for Tweet Display Back will soon shift to only supporting Joomla! 2.5 and beyond.  Joomla! 1.5 and 1.7 will continue to be supported by the Tweet Display Back 2.1 series through October 2012.  The next series of Tweet Display Back will use new features introduced into the Joomla! Platform that will require Joomla! 2.5 or newer.  Also, lessening the support requirements for new versions means that additional features can be added without needing to be compatible with multiple versions of Joomla! and its supporting code (such as MooTools).

Development is driven by user request and API support.  If the Twitter API or Joomla! Platform can support the request, and it is a logical inclusion in this module, then it will more than likely be included in a future release.  Links with additional information about requesting or contributing features can be found in the documentation linked below.
