New features introduced in this version are:

[B]No dependency on SEF URL components[/B]:
Most important update in this release is the ability of JV-LD to generate SEF URLs for itself. You dont need any SEF URL component like sh404SEF, Artio JoomSEF etc… to get SEF URLs for JV-LD. The default SEF URL feature that comes with Joomla is more than enough to get SEF URLs for JV-LD!

[B]Social Bookmarking[/B]:
Your website users and visitors can now bookmark links in your directory to their bookmarks in Google, StumbleUpon, Digg, Furl, Technoratti etc… with this feature. The option to book will appear in the link details page.

[B]Tabbed Scalable and New Design for Link Details Page[/B]:
The link details has got a new look now!. New images has been added and tabs have been introduced for extensibility of the component and to enhance easy feature addition in the future

[B]ReCaptcha Challenge System[/B]:
Your directory now can have the reCaptcha challenge system as an option to prevent spam in form submissions!

[B]Suggest a Category Feature:[/B]
Users of your website can now suggest new categories to you! for your directory, if incase they find that, the category for their link is already not available. JV-LD will send you an email informing you of this suggestion.

[B]Tuning of Titles and Descriptions for SEO[/B]:
Added display slug in page titles for profiles. For text profiles, link title will be shown. If only banner profiles are available, then stripped partner url will be shown. This increases your website SEO and makes it more search engine friendly
