    Or you could just use that update and we can continue using your plugin and I abandon that one? 🙂

    Whatever the solution, I’d love to see it soon because the “plus” version has a significant bug that it shows up twice in the plugin listing, and only one of them can be successfully activated.

    Hi Joseph,

    Pushed an update that fixed the bug in plus version.
