MTAmazon[32] 1.3.3 Released

This is to formally announce the release of MTAmazon 1.3.3. This is a significant release for MTAmazon, as not only does it coincide with a new web site design to coordinate MTAmazon's look and feel with my other projects, but it also contains a major refactoring of the source code so that it can be more easily extended by other applications, like Media Manager. And of course it contains bug fixes. But for the most part, those "enhancements" are relatively transparent to most users. Or at least I hope they are. A not so transparent new feature is the new ability to insert a one second delay between each call to Amazon's Web services. This feature was added once it was discovered by a few users that Amazon is beginning to rate limit its customers. This one second delay alliviates this problem by slowing the rate at which MTAmazon makes calls to Amazon. And I am also still in the process of migrating all of the references to "MTAmazon32" to "MTAmazon." My apologies in advance if the names are out of sync or used inconsitently.

Change Log

* Created a blog level config option to add a 1-second delay between requests to Amazon. As it turns out, Amazon is beginning to rate limit EAWS Web Services users, limited them to 1 request per second per their terms of use. * Refactored MTAmazon's file structure. I moved all template tag code to MTAmazon::Plugin, and all utility functions to MT::Amazon::Util. This should have minor performance improvements to Movable Type, and make MTAmazon's code more reusable for other plugins. * Updated some minor copy issues with error messaging. * Bug fix where in WishList searches if lastn is larger than the actual number of items on the list, the last set of items was simply repeated over and over again until lastn was reached.

When I use the tag, it only returns an image that has 1/2 star filled, even though these are not the ratings of the the respective books. Any ideas why?
