This new version of the stats plugin that embeds itself into the page does not work. EVERY TIME I click on the Blog Stats link, I'm asked to log into my WordPress.com account, which then redirects me to my profile. I would then have to renavigate over two clicks to see the stats, and then it displays the whole WordPress.com admin header inside there, so that half of the page is wasted for the header space. And it doesn't remember my login either, it prompts me to go through that every time.
Version 1.1 is a horrible upgrade. I'm going back to version 1.0--I really have no problems with having a redirect, and until you get rid of the iframe, I'm staying with 1.0.
