Automat:ee 1.2 Released
Today marks the release of the first major update to Automat:ee in 4 months. No one's really asked for anything and it was surprisingly stable so there didn't seem to be much of a need really. Till recently anyway, when a couple needs came up for better debugging tools, config overrides, NSM Update Notifier support and even a couple bug fixes and internal tweaks.
First, the debug tools now allow you to set a "mode" within Automat:ee that will send an email alert any time anything goes wrong with a Cron along with it's contents. This should help work out issues with external systems that Automat:ee is executing.
Then there's the new Run mechamism that allows users to excecute Crons from within the ExpressionEngine control panel. Next to each Cron is a simple link, click it and your Cron will run. Easy.
Finally, there's been a slew of tweaks such as
Updated URL request to use CURL instead of file_get_contents()
Abstracted out Cron methods into own class/library
Removed Instructions method
Added check for https on Ajax URls
Added error function to Ajax object for status alerts
Added NSM Update Notifier Support
Added config override options
