26 October 2006
- Changed author's email address
- Added new method of retrieving remote images
==> This method uses the HTTP Retriever class (http://www.phpclasses.org/browse/package/3105.html)
- Example.php will now automatically "require" the file "class_HTTPRetriever.php" if it finds it in the same directory.
- retrieve_remote_file() now supports an optional parameter to "force" it to use a certain method of image retrival
- print_thumbnail() now redirects to an absolute URL instead of a relative URL
- Revamped Error Handling
- output_error() has been superseded by set_error()
- You can now set log_error on to log errors in cache folder
- Script will now terminate only on Fatal Errors
- error_array has been sub-divided into fatal errors and warnings
- Warnings are now logged in error_array.
- Parameter changes to error()
- Behavioural changes to isError() and error() - error() now returns ALL errors
- Intermediate methods will now generate warnings instead of simply returning a "false" for easier debugging.
- Documentation rewritten
