Heyho,

its exactly five month after the last news, i havent answered any emails alomst als long as this so of cours everybody thought the project is dead. It isnt. Sorry, that i leaved without Message. At first i thought to make a break for a week and then i began to procrastinate  it. later i decided to say somethink just when i have somethink to say. And thats now. Im proud to tell you that the next big update is out, easyreservations 1.2! Two month of harf work and persistent testing are paying of now. I felt a bit like before the initial relase, everythink needed to be perfect.

If just installed 1.1.4 again, the first time since its release – its not comparable with 1.2. Its like a new Plugin or what it should have been. With this Update the Plugin is finally really usable. I dont want to talk alot about the new features, you have to see it, but the most-wanted availability calendar is finally here!

Ohh and we have a demonstration now too. Ive changed the server, updated this site, the documentation and opened the bug report center for you. The eMail support will be back, but i wont reply any old email because the new Update will answer the most. But feel free to send it again if its still important. The new email is support@feryaz.de.

I want to say thanks to the helpers back then. Sorry for leaving without message. Ive done too much and needed a gap. But now im back 🙂

I’ll stop programming for now and wait for bug reports, suggetions and most your opinions in the comments. They keep me working!
