Text Hover v3.0.1

I’d like to announce the official release of the updated Text Hover plugin (v3.0.1) for WordPress.

Add hover text to regular text in posts. Handy for providing explanations of names, terms, phrases, and acronyms mentioned in your blog.

Significant and recommended update. Highlights: re-implementation; added more settings and hooks for customization; disable autowrap in textarea; misc improvements; verified WP 3.0 compatibility; dropped compatibility with WP older than 2.8.

The plugin’s official homepage is located at :

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 Comments will be closed once this release has been superseded by another.
