This update brings higher performance, several minor enhancements, and a revamped administrative interface to the popular plugin for numbering comments under WordPress 2.7.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: This plugin now has newer versions! For information on subsequent releases, please see the update announcements here:
- Version 1.3: “Two WordPress Plugins Updated for 2.9”
This latest update to the comment numbering plugin builds on an underlying code framework which I’ve been using in-house for awhile now, and which features in some plugins which aren’t quite ready for public release yet. That new framework enables the plugin to run more efficiently during ordinary page views and makes it much quicker and easier to deliver options pages in the administrative interface.
The core comment numbering code hasn’t changed significantly, however, so you should experience all the same benefits as the original versions: accurate hierarchical numbering regardless of threading levels, and careful workarounds to deal with bugs in WordPress which currently cause problems in the way it orders comments under certain circumstances.
