This version of the plugin is compiled using Google Web Toolkit version 1.7. Along with a small fix to nested PRE within DIV tags, this upgrade of the framework should fix the problems encountered with closed boards under Internet Explorer 8, as well as any other issues specific to that browser that may have been lurking. I also took the opportunity to clean up the code to compile cleanly with no deprecations under GWT 1.7 as well. Anyone who is compiling from source should note that the prior release used GWT 1.5, and the directory structure is completely different in GWT 1.7; the source code in this build reflects that new layout.
This release also moves the config page from the Tools menu to the Settings menu, since this is where most plugin users expect it nowadays.
As usual, here is the Chess By Blog blurb page. You can download the release directly from the wordpress server: chess-by-blog.1.1.4.zip, or first take a look at the Chess by Blog page on wordpress.org.
Please post any questions or issues in the comments. If you are having issues, please be sure to post what browser and what version you are using. Happy chess playing!
