MT-Notifier 1.2.0

  • Added per-blog and per-install default "from" addresses.
  • Added subroutine to get an email address for the sender.
  • Added purge of address information.
  • Fixed purges to work correctly.
  • Removed $SENDER variable.

I've just released an updated version of MT-Notifier. Most of the changes are behind-the-scenes, and you won't see much different about the operation. However, there are a couple of new features, notably an enhanced ability to specify the "from" address on your outgoing notifications.

While versions prior to 1.2.0 had a $SENDER variable defined inside the notifier.pm module, versions 1.2.0 and higher will store this information in the plugindata table, along with the subscription information. This also allows a default address to be set on a per-blog or a per-installation basis.

If you have a version of MT-Notifier prior to 1.2.0 and would like to upgrade, simply copy the contents of the distribution over the existing files. Please note that this will erase the $SENDER value in your current installation, so you'll want to go right to the management interface and enter your new default address(es)!
