What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· Moved to using Inline Options. This requires version 7.* or greater. On older versions, old preferences should work
· Added a preference to disable the notification that appears after all configured folders have been emptied
· Optimization change: Remove the folder listener that was added to track folders being emptied. No functional change, just makes the add-on a good citizen by not consuming resources when it is not active
