Linkify Authors v1.1

I’d like to announce the official release of the updated Linkify Authors plugin (v1.1) for WordPress.

Turn a string, list, or array of author IDs and/or slugs into a list of links to those authors.

This release features minor formatting tweaks and documentation enhancements, notes compatibility with WP 2.9+, but what warrants a v1.1 release as opposed to a v1.0.1 release is the fact that one of the small changes means the plugin drops support for versions of WordPress older than 2.8.

For more details, instructions, and the download link, visit the plugin’s official homepage at :

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 Comments will be closed once this release has been superseded by another.
