BlaatLogin OAuth version 0.4.4 upcoming
May 3rd, 2015 by andre

It seems I can’t stick with a name for my WordPress OAuth plugin. But now, I’m releasing it under the name BlaatLogin. I’m releasing a new version soon. The configuration pages have been rewritten, the user pages have been merged. Major changes, I was planning to save for a 0.5 release. However, a serious bug came up. When this bug was resolved, it turned out to be covering up a major design flaw, causing the plugin to malfunction in combination with many services. (It would work with github and Twitter, but not with Facebook and Google)
(Note: Any custom plugins based on my OAuth plugin have not been affected with this problem)

Therefore I will release a version 0.4.4, fixing these issues. It will be the first release that actually works. Consider it a preview release for 0.5. The new configuration pages are there, allowing the configuration of OAuth services, and fields for user identification API calls. For this release, only flat objects are supported in the answer. This means, it is for example not possible to set up Yahoo! or VK. The upcoming release comes with preconfigured support for Facebook, github, Google, Linkedin, Microsoft, and Twitter. For these services, existing configurations can be imported.

Another change is a plugin split-up. I am splitting up into a BlaatLogin Base and BlaatLogin OAuth plugin. The BlaatLogin Base will contain all the form generation code. It is a common code base that is used by all (upcoming) BlaatLogin plugins. (The VATSIM plugin will be updated to work with the BlaatLogin Base. Other plugins, such as OpenID and BrowserID are planned after the 0.5 release)

There will also be a BlaatSchaap Base plugin, which contains support code for all my (planned) plugins. At this moment, I am resolving some installation/dependency issues. When these are resolved, the 0.4.4 version will be released. I cannot promise when… even though this is a small issue… there are other projects that require my attention as well.

Stay tuned,
