Warning

IT IS MANDATORAY TO COMPLETELY REMOVE ALL VERSION < 2.6.0 BEFORE INSTALLING THIS NEW ONE!
Go to the Extension Manager under the tab Manage, enter in filter "tag", select all and click Actions – Uninstall
Reason: I did change a lot of folder name and file casing casing to be more Joomla compliant
Don’t be scared you will not loose any Tags or data from your database! uninstalling do not remove currently any tables!

Your ideas are important, feel free to contact me and ask for new features!

New & Noteworthy

Security

SECURITY: all Ajax operations+Admin operation are now protected with a Joomla token to avoid CSRF
