History

Version 0.9.0 Initial version of the puzzle module.

Version 0.9.1 It was noticed that version 0.9.0 would not work on sites which implemented permission restrictions on the image that the applet attempted to download by default. I added functionality which iterates through the source and resizes that the viewer has permission to download. The module will then pick an image that is "big enough" for use in the puzzle. If no image can be found, a polite error page will be given. The original aspect ratio of the downloaded image is also respected by the applet.

Version 0.9.2 I added the ability for puzzles to be enabled or disabled on a per album basis. --J.mike.rollins 14:58, 8 December 2005 (PST)
