  • Support for sed-light skin
  • Support for Pages
  • Support for Aliased Pages
  • Linked Users with Spoiler style show/hide.
  • New Tags {EVENTS_REMAININGSLOTS} - For showing how many places are still available.
  • New layout for event pages

  • Fixed {EVENTEDIT_PAGETITLE} and {EVENTEDIT_SUBTITLE} language values not showing up.
  • Fixed incompatability with SED-Light template in event.edit.tpl and event.add.tpl
  • Support for Facebook 'Like' or 'Reccomend' buttons. (In progress)
  • New mode added for m parameter 'attendees' with params 'id' and 'state' - (This will be shown in a popup window for each availability state or directly with the URL in a normal window with a View All option underneath each state.)
  • New configuration option EventDetailsMaxAttendeesDisplay = 10 (Default is 10 per category).
  • New configuration option ShowEventAttendeesInPopup = 1 (Default is 1 (True))
  • Support for Full-Calendar display by Category c=CatName

Next things planned are
  • Support for per-user or per-group event filtering or on-page display in Users section. (So that the plugin can be used as an availability matrix for teams).
  • Event Sorting by Date, Name or Category
  • Event Filtering by Category
  • Pre-Event Opt-In E-mail Notfications
  • Event Comments
  • Admin ability to Add/Remove attendees
  • Re-written English language file (Nothing wrong with the old one, just changed the wording)
  • TPL Support for categories events.*.tpl
  • User specific events (Public Calendar)
  • Non-attendance events (Team Whereabouts, eg: MIHSoft team is at IP Expo)
  • New BBCode for Events which links to a mini event description
  • jQuery or similar hover over link (day/date) for event information
  • Direct links to Calendar in Events page for easy switching between the Calendar and the Events plugins
  • New Event Category Colours to distinguish events from different categories in the Calendar (Suggested by Hodges)
