Extension Updates

Tweet Display Back 2.0 Beta Released

Today, Tweet Display Back 2.0 Beta has been released.

NOTE: This is a BETA release, and although the code has been thoroughly tested, it is NOT recommended for use on production sites.

Tweet Display Back 2.0 introduces several optimizations in code processing as well as new features. The biggest new feature is the ability to filter tweets; users are able to select whether to display @replies and @mentions in their rendered output. Additional to this new feature, tweet entities are now pulled with each tweet, allowing additional data to be processed by the module, including native Twitter media once it has been fully implemented. Using entities has allowed several optimizations in the output, specifically in the link rendering for URLs, @users, and #tags. Finally, additional language optimizations have been made to further enhance international translation capabilities.

For those who are testing the 2.0 Beta, I ask that you please submit feedback about the module via the Contact Me link on this site or through the Issue Tracker, especially concerning the module's performance with filtering options enabled. These tests will help to optimize the module's performance and ensure that the module does not slow your site's loading down because of an extended processing period.

Contributors

This release would not include the features or translations that it does without the support of the contributors. I'd like to thank Jurian Even for assisting with code development and Manoel Silva, JOKR Solutions, and Benjamin Ash for providing translations for distribution with the module.

Documentation & Support

As always, further information about the module is available in the Tweet Display Back section of the site, including information about the module's parameters, available translations, FAQ's, and more! Note that the documentation at this time is still optimized for the 1.5/1.6 releases, although all of it will still apply to this release.
