J!MailAlerts 2.0.1 is here

J!MailAlertsWe have released J!MailAlerts 2.0.1 today. It comes with a shiny new interface as well as a huge number of bug fixes. All bugs reported to date have been solved. The new interface makes it easy for frontend users to chose what alerts they want & configure each alert to a level never known before !

Whats New ?

We have pushed in a couple of small but interesting features. One of them is "Respect Last Email Date" . This option in the configuration should be kept on if you want to ensure that emails are sent only if any of the plugins has new content to deliver for the user, however if you want mails to be sent out irrespective of whether the content is new or not, you can switch it off.

The next interesting thing is the verbose debug. We have added this specifically to prove the reliability of the extension & save on support issues & also to give you an insight on how it works. When the Cron runs, a debug is shown in the following manner. Its also logged to a log.txt file in the component admin.

Our own Use case

A copy of this version has been running on our intranet for the past week or so & its achieved the impossible of getting people to logon & share what new things they have been working on. With a few spicy plugins of our own like the Docman Latest Documents Plugin, Most active User Plugin ( these have not been publicly released yet) , our Intranet is really becoming a nice hub of activity. We hope you achieve the same success with your sites !
