Version 0.5.2

  • There aren’t any changes in version 0.5.2. Version 0.5 and 0.5.1 caused lots of confusion. I realized everyone who downloaded it from here had the working version 0.5.1, although it had “Version 0.5” in the wptweeter.php file. The WordPress repository had the broken version 0.5 with “Version 0.5.1” in the wptweeter.php file, which was the exact opposite. However, the people who had the working version from my site had “Version 0.5” in the plugin, which prompted the user to upgrade to the broken 0.5.1 on the WordPress repository. All the numbers have been updated to 0.5.2.

Version 0.5.1 – Had version 0.5 in wptweeter.php file
