Safe Function Call v1.1

I’d like to announce the official release of the updated Safe Function Call plugin (v1.1) for WordPress.

Safely call functions that may not be available (for example, from within a template, calling a function that is provided by a plugin that may be deactivated).

The plugin’s official homepage is located at :

This release adds a new function, _sfcf() which allows another function to be called if the originally intended function does not exist. The plugin is noted as being WordPress 2.9+ compatible.

Update: Plugin updated to v1.1.1 (see comment below for more information)

Comments welcome on this post for this version of the plugin. Comments will be closed once this release has been superseded by another.
