I've finally released the new version of EventCalendar. I'm really proud of it. It's been updated, with better integration into WordPress and some cool new features.

Even more importantly, I've put loads of effort into making it easy to install and use. WordPress users aren't always the most tech-savvy web-site owners, so it's important that the plug-in should be as straightforward as possible. That helps the users, but it also helps me. EventCalendar is quite popular, I think there are probably about ten-thousand installations, so I get quite a few cries for help from confused bloggers. Every bit of extra usability means fewer support e-mails for me to deal with.

Many of the new features in this release have been implemented by Darrell Schulte. Without his enthusiasm, I'm not sure that version 3.1 would ever have made it.

Anyway, all the details are over on the EventCalendar blog.
