• Change license to Artistic

You read that right.

Effective immediately, MT-Notifier has returned to its roots, and there is only a single, open source version of the plugin. Additionally, this means that the features only available to the licensed plugin are now available to everyone.

- Author subscriptions
- Search (and replace) subscriptions
- Templates can be stored in the database

Happy new year!

Licensed users of MT-Notifier v4 can re-download from your unique download link to obtain the updated version.

As mentioned previously, you may need to update your URL to get to the download if you are having problems.

This release fixes the problem you may have encountered with an undefined subroutine. Requests were processed, but you would have received an error.

Also, anyone who has created translation files for MT-Notifier may have had an issue with one of the email strings. That has now been corrected as well.
