We were VERY dissappointed to find that a newbie, anitaa, had take the original code from v1.00 on May 22, 2006 and reposted it with no documentation and no notes. Because this appeared as the newest version, installers were often using this version which omitted ALL of the many fixes and code changes performed by djalex and ourselves. Without these code changes the original module lacked the most basic of security checks and had several bugs. Please do not interpret anitaa's version of the module as a newer version of the as it is in fact the oldest and least updated of all the available versions of this contribution! Ironically asteck, having not looked through the code history or performed comparisons, posted the same code fix on April 6, 2007 that djalex had posted on June 22, 2006 but without djalex's many other fixes!

As a result of this, we have decided to re-post this module as a complete module with far more diagnostic information and automatic emails to the store owner as noted in our prior updates v1.2 and 1.2a. Always compare code and look at the modules, especially when someone posts "new" code without any update notes or information.

1. More filtering on XML data. A line like richmond µ + &, Virginia 123455 µ + will work after filtering.
