Quick Tip: curreX version 0.9 released (with Flash Widget support)

Another quick announcement. I just released another version (0.9) of curreX – the Ajax based Currency Converter widget for WordPress.

Starting from this version, curreX also includes a Flash based widget and provides you with the option of selecting between the HTML/JavaScript version and it’s Flash counterpart from the widget configuration panel of WordPress.

A quick preview of the flash widget can be obtained from here. I’m pretty bad at creating snazzy graphics in flash – so it’s going to take a while to make the widget look nice. The current version is fully functional though.

As always, I’m open for any questions / comments / bug reports.

    The flash version is great in Firefox, but does not work in IE. In IE, the ICON for “Get Adobe Flash Player” shows where curreX should be, even if the Flash Player is already installed. After clicking on the icon, the flash player is apparently successfully installed (again). When I return to the original page, once again the Adobe icon appears instead of curreX, just like it did the first time. This happens with both XP and Vista, and with IE 6 and IE7. The IE options have been examined should not be causing a problem.
    The release of WordPress is 2.5.1, the theme is Mandigo 1.33.1, and curreX v0.9 is being called from the dashboard which is not widget enabled. The calling sequence is .
    If “HTML” is specified instead, everything works.
    Other widgets that are installed are BackUpWordPress 0.4.5, Dashboard Editor 1.1, Maintenance Mode 3.2, SABRE 0.7.2, TimeZoneCalculator 0.7.1, and wp-forecast 1.7.
    The version of the blog where I am testing curreX is on a localhost behind a firewall.
