Critical fix (adaptation to MS Skype API changes). Must do if you want the plugin to work!
I brought many improvements to v2 that I wanted to bring to v1 (see 1.3.0 bellow) but because of lack of time, couldn't do it! I'll do it in the future, meanwhile if you like v1 - donate something you can and get v2. Thanks.
Improvement: Now you can put only one or 2 images to theme folder and that will work.
Fix: some small bug fixes, including IE issues.
Small bug fixes
New: Improved performance and response time. Important update for high traffic websites and/or websites running on low resources servers. Now using wordpress transients to cache skype servers response.
New: status does not change if skype server times out or returns 'unknown' status. This makes it stable while skype servers are lagging.
Fixed bug that would make critical php error because of white space output before headers.
The the admin side is more neat now.
Fix: Now using wp_remote_get instead of fopen to get status. This allows to timeout request and send new one if skype servers are lagging.
Fix: Now works with MS Internet Explorer v7, v8 and v9
Fix: Works even if no settings are saved (does not throw PHP warnings)
Fix: Now version handling is done correctly and appropriate settings saved between updates.
New: New AJAX requests are now sent only after previous request is completed.
New: Put -1 for interval to disable AJAX calls (only one initial call will be made)
New: Option to remove settings after uninstall and better version management
Fix: Cosmetical fix for settings
Fix: If images for SkypeMe or Not available are not found - it falls back to online or away accordingly
Fix: html is not affected on each AJAX request - only when status changes (reduces flickering)
New: more skype status icons
More important settings are now on the top
Some bug fixes
New: option to preload skype button images to avoid flickering on first skype status changes after page reload
New: Skype CSS was simplified
New: All official I could produce on Skype website
New: Can choose initial image to load while loading page without
1.3.0 (in development)
New: Custom text tooltip for hover over button. Default available for translation.
