1.0.5 – WPMU Compatibility Release


Adds support for variable styling of widget titles depending on the collapsed/expanded state of the widget. (A typical use case is, for example, arrows pointing in different directions as background images).


Fixes an issue with the tag cloud widget.


Fixes the widget body wrapping strategy to avoid a problem with the tag cloud widget (and probably with others, too).

Also, a rectification of the CSS class assignment will require a minor change in your CSS clauses.
The the plug-in homepage has been updated to reflect the new CSS structure. See the details in the release announcement post.
