I’d like to announce the release of the updated Allow Multiple Accounts plugin (v2.5) for WordPress.
Allow multiple user accounts to be created from the same email address.
Major update! This release fixes WP 3.1+, 3.2+ and BuddyPress compatibility. It also drops compatibility with version of WP older than 3.1. A number of bugs were fixed, some filters were added, some lower level changes were made, and its plugin framework updated. All in all, a recommended update for those running compatible versions of WordPress.
For more details, instructions, screenshots, 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 Comments will be closed once this release has been superseded by another.

These are the detailed changes, some of which may or may not make sense to you depending on your familiarity with the previous features and internals of the plugin.
