TargetAlert Released

I've received quite a bit of email from Firefox 1.5 users asking me to restore the option to have TargetAlert icons appear after a link when a user mouses over it, so I have done so in TargetAlert (In, instead of displaying the icon at the end of the link, it would transform the cursor into the TargetAlert icon, which a number of users found annoying.) Ultimately, I would like to provide users with the option of converting the cursor, but simply rolling back the change was the quickest fix. This option is now planned for TargetAlert 0.9.

From the TargetAlert Roadmap, it may appear that everything is planned for version 0.9, as it has been for some time. You may be wondering why there hasn't been much progress. Well, the main reason is that the bulk of the code that needs to be written is not very much fun to write. Serializing XML and error-checking user input just aren't my idea of a good time. (Please remember that I work on TargetAlert for free, as a hobby, and that will continue to be the case until some people start clicking on my PayPal Donate link!)

Besides, I've recently been working on some other things that I find more entertaining.
