CedTag  has been updated to version 2.5.5 and correct a lot of bugs and contains some nice new features.

CedTag is the continuation of the GPL component #Joomla Tags (, Most of the code if not all has been now 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.
