Re-implemented the plugin, removed some of the function which have been deprecated in previous releases so that the plugin maintains compatibility in the future. Designed for version 3.9 of WordPress. Added the ablity to give the widget a title. Added a new configuration option to give the quote a background color (requested by a user).
No real changes as of this version, just re-uploaded and double-checked it still works to keep it in the public repos. Tested with a fresh install of WP 3.8.1 and it is still working fine.
The look of the quote is now customizable with an option page that has been added to the admin interface. It is now possible to hide the author and date, change the alignments (left or right), change the color of the quote and whether or not to make it italic or bold.
Added support for a simple widget which displays a random quote. More control over the look of the widget to come...
