Hooray! I have finally found the time to add some long awaited new features to my related posts plugin. I have listened carefully to your feedback and I know lots of you will be very happy with this great set of improvements.
Upgrade the plugin through your WordPress admin or download it here.
Added support for WP 3.0 custom post types
You can now add custom post types as related posts next to regular posts and pages. Through the settings page you can choose whether you want to display related posts as one complete list or multiple seperated lists by post type.
Added language support
The plugin is now setup for translation. Besides default English I have already added the language files for Dutch. Please consider translating the plugin into your language and send me the language files.
Control the order of the related posts
You can now order the related posts by date or title, or display them in a random order. In the future I would like to add the ability to manually order posts, but there are some interesting issues concerned with that. For now, I know lots of you are very happy with this feature.
Support non Western Latin characters
All you Chinese and Russian WordPress users out there can now also fully use all the features of this plugin! This was difficult for me to fully test, so please let me know if it works.
If you appreciate the new features of this release, please consider a donation for my work!
