Bug fix in Drop Down Menu
Oops, there was a bug in the recent release of Drop Down Menu. We fixed it, and we recommend everyone upgrade to the latest version, 1.1.2, in order to have the less buggy 'clickToOpen' feature. For details, see the forum thread here.
Dropdown Menu Update
Finally! We know, we know, we have been pretty bad about releasing upgrades to our plugins. But don't worry, we're committed to this project, we just have to do the best we can with the limited time we have. Anyway, check out the bug fixes and improvements to the Drop Down Menu plugin: CSS improvements, new open/close delay feature, RTL support, Vertical menu support, and some minor bug fixes. Check out the Drop Down Menu Demo Page for specific details on the new options and fixes.
UvumiTools Crop 2.0.0 - Major Upgrade!
This is a really big update with many added features and new functionalities over the previous version. You'll have to check the new Crop demo page for details, but here's a preview: Advanced customizable features including multiple resize handles, editable selection dimensions, new server side scripts, improved preview feature, and improved user interface. These new features were added after multiple requests from users on the forum. Enjoy!
Version Numbers in Last Week's Release
Oops! During all the excitement of releasing new versions of the Dropdown, Crop, Scrollbar, and Textarea plugins, we seem to have forgotten to update the version numbers in the downloadable source files (and compressed libraries). So, if you downloaded the new versions since last Thursday, you may want to grab them again to avoid confusion in the future if you're relying on those version numbers to keep tabs on your plugins. Sorry about that!
Massive Updates and Bug Fixes
Holy crap! We've been super busy with our day jobs this autumn, and it's been difficult to find time to update UvumiTools plugins. But the forum has been very active, and a few bugs were found and excellent feature requests were made, so we made time to address those issues. Here's a quick summary of the updates, but if you want the full story check the change log for each tool, then go to the forum to discuss:
Image Crop Plugin - Fixed some important bugs with Internet Explorer and added a function to change the pictures source. The update includes some changes in the CSS file too, so you need to download the whole package again if you want these updates. See Olivier's forum post for more details and to ask questions.
Dropdown Menu - Added new "Close Delay" and "Click to Open" features. This has been an extremely popular plugin, and it is very stable. These new features give you even more options for customizing the look and feel of your drop down menu. Olivier discusses the new features in the forum.
Scrollbar Plugin - Big update for this plugin. We fixed the jumpy behavior, so everything operates very smoothly now. Additional CSS customization was also added to the scroll knobs. More notes and discussion on the forum.
Textarea Plugin - This update was large and important. We fixed a couple of really nasty bugs, one which was a pretty bad security risk. It's pretty important to update to the new version if you are using this tool in a production environment. Olivier explains the bug fixes in detail on the forum.

Custom Scrollbars with Standards Compliance
This week's plugin release is our very own custom script for generating stylized scrollbars in any scrollable container without breaking your standards-compliant HTML. It's called UvumiTools Scrollbar. Seriously, this is some fancy stuff, and it doesn't even require non-compliant CSS like Microsoft wants you to use. We're sure you'll like this very non-obtrusive and easy to use plugin, and it will give your site's theme that all-encompassing look and feel without breaking your code or requiring you to learn any new tricks. Enjoy!

Textarea Bug Fixes
Just after its initial release we found a fairly major bug in our Textarea Plugin which was basically rendering it useless in the Opera web browser. We like Opera, and we want our plugins to be compatible with all of the major browsers, so we developed a fix for Opera's strange character counting behavior with <textarea> elements. Olivier summarizes the technical bits behind this bug in the forum. Users of this plugin will definitely want to download the newest version for their web sites.
Updates and Enahancements
Meanwhile, our Textarea plugin has been updated to support mouse-click paste events thanks to an attentive visitor who discovered that lack of functionality. Now that it is fixed, we're even more confident in this plugin's potential to enhance the usability of your web site. You can read technical details about this update here.
