Below is the complete changelog for ELA since I took over Jonas great work.

So go get the latest of what’s described here on ELA home page.

The cache directory chas changed: it is now part of the package and therefore one more step may be required in the process of installing ELA. The cache files are now located in the /cache/ directory in the /plugins/af-extended-live-archive/ directory. One may need to set the permission of this cache directory to 777 (writeable by user on the server) in order to make the whole thing work.
