cedTag 2.5.1 for J2.5 Released
CedTag has been updated to version 2.5.1 and correct a lot of bugs and contains some nice features.
CedTag is the continuation of the GPL component #Joomla Tags (www.joomlatags.org), Most of the code has been rewritten according to the new standard of #Joomla 2.5, the component has been greatly extended and most bugs have been removed. I will continue removing, refactoring existing codebase, in order to be able to add new features faster.
