In this version we re-wrote the CSS and HTML code so that the extension in completely XHTML 1.0 compliant, as well as the native Magento themes. Also, we made separate CSS for different browsers and got rid of CSS paring warnings. Other features of the release:
It’s half a module, half a browser plugin, anyway it makes your store closer to visitors and customers.
Fully customizable, with its own caching system it will make your store highly integrated with your WordPress blog or any other system/service that has RSS feeds.
This Magento extension will allow you to display RSS feeds on your store pages. You can have multiple readers to display different feeds with full display control of each reader instance. RSS Reader will use its own cache for the best speed possible. RSS Reader extension is the best way to display your WordPress content on Magento store pages.
Another highly required thing for Magento – a Video extension. Despite it’s quite straightforward to create an attribute and use it, many people would like to see this functionality “out-of-box”. We decided to explore this possibility and start development of a video module. What we have now is a very simple code that adds a tab in the product configuration interface and allows to enter video embed-code. We’d like you, Magento users to contribute your ideas and needs and help us create a useful and poweful module.
