I've just released v3.2.beta1:


This is a BETA release, so don't use it on critical sites. Give it a go, and
tell me what you think.


This version contains only bug fixes since the last development release

o Much improved query support. Ordering of listings pages is now *much* more
sensible. The post numbers reported by archive and category links now match
the number of posts that actually appear on those pages.

o New query variable: ec3_listing. Values are:
  events  - only show events
  posts   - only show posts (not events)
  all     - show a mix of posts and events
  disable - turn off EC's fiddling

o Big Calendars (ta da!)
Embed a big calendar in a page by adding a tag like [EC3BigCalendar].
You can specify options like this: [EC3BigCalendar:opt=val&opt=val]
Supported options are:
 day_length       : 1,3,9 letters
 hide_logo        : 0,1
 navigation       : 0 (off), 1 (above), 2 (below)
 id               : <unique_id>
 num_months       : 1..n
 show_only_events : 0,1
The default (with no options set) is equivalent to:

o Iconlets (dumb name?)
This is a new default way to display event times in the post. It's a lot nicer
than the horrid old red boxes. The settings page now allows you to choose
between the old and new style - the option is now called "Show times within
post content".
We've had a lot of people obviously not understand what the old option did, so
I've reworded it to be clearer. I realise that invalidates lots of
translations, but I really think it's worth it. What's your opinion?

What else would you like to see before a release?

(And *don't* say repeating events :-)
