The latest development build of Breadcrumb NavXT now fully supports static front pages. Currently only the official WordPress method of defining a static front page is supported (using the options in Options>Reading). This was made possible thanks to some new conditional tags in WordPress 2.5. Thus, Breadcrumb NavXT 2.1 will require WordPress 2.5.
Next on deck is allowing breadcrumbs by tag or category. Categories would retain their current functionality, but tags will do what categories did in Breadcrumb Navigation XT. After that I’ll look into creating a widget for it. That will be the cutoff for 2.1, and I’ll do some code reduction as WordPress 2.5 will be a requirement so some old hacks can be removed. These are mainly located within the api file and only affect the administrative interface.
