Breadcrumb NavXT 4.0 Field Report

Currently, a quite dramatic change in settings, and as a result, behavior, is scheduled for Breadcrumb NavXT 4.0. The aim is to both reduce the number of options, while increasing the flexibility of Breadcrumb NavXT. This means replacing the prefix, suffix and anchor settings with two templates for most breadcrumb types. One template is the default template for the breadcrumb, the other is the template used when the breadcrumb is not linked. Note that some breadcrumbs will never use a linked template. There will be a settings upgrade/migration script from the 3.x settings to the 4.0 settings.

Unlike previous releases, 4.0 will have a full Alpha and Beta test release phase before the final version is available. The first Alpha will be available once the settings are fully changed over and a few required bug fixes are done. The first Beta will be available once all planned features are implemented. As for a release date, don’t plan on anything beyond an Alpha before October. This has been seriously delayed due to a project I was pulled into due to personnel issues. Hopefully, that project will be wrapping up soon.
