I found a bug. Where should I post it?

I personally prefer GitHub. The plugin code is here: GitHub

I want to use the latest files. How can I do this?

Use the GitHub Repo rather than the WordPress Plugin. Do as follows:
1. If you haven’t already done: Install git
2. in the console cd into Your ‘wp-content/plugins’ directory
3. type ‘git clone’
4. If you want to update to the latest files (be careful, might be untested on Your WP-Version) type ‘git pull’.

I found a bug and fixed it. How can I let You know?

Either post it on GitHub or—if you are working on a cloned repository—send me a pull request.
