We are happy to inform about the release of 1.3.0 version, that includes fixes and suggestions we have received from our customers recently. Here is a brief list of changes in this version:

1. More strict thread check when "Check Thread Starter" option is enabled. Previously was just checking that either rater or rated user has started the thread, now it will also ensure that the other party has replied in that thread (ideal for cases when users leave feedback for some service they have received via a thread).
2. Changed the interface for thread selection to automatically show list of threads directly instead of asking for URL and Find Thread link when the number of threads available is less than 10 (suggested here) .
3. Find Thread field is now auto-suggesting just after activation, so in most cases user will be able to find what they need just looking that list, without the need to remember thread title. Of course typing will narrow down the options to exact thread.
4. Changed the tab "Feedback left by {username}" to show the name of party, who received the feedback (suggested here).
5. Added two new options to disable Latest Activity functionality at all, and to define AJAX timeout for home page requests. As reported by @dbembibre , this feature causes extensive inserts upon MySQL database for large boards causing duplicate key errors or table locks. Duplicate key errors are fixed, table locks will not be reported or be visible to user any more.
6. Latest feedback block in home page will be populated on back-end now, instead of AJAX loading, to make latest feedback available for search engines. Of course it will further update the list of feedback via AJAX (using time interval mentioned above).
7. Fixed all references to JS/Image files to use style properties, making the product compatible with CDN configuration of the board.
8. Changed the default way of postbit statistics shown to use CSS markup instead of images (thanks to @dbembibre for the idea and the code). Product still has the old markup included, and it can be activated from Options page, under Appearance tab, the option "Legacy Postbit View".

As always all customers can download the update from Customers Portal.

Thank you and enjoy!
