Adds email subscriptions to Mango Blog

Source is now on GitHub: http://github.com/atuttle/Mango-Scribe

Changed in version

- Fixed a bug sending emails on Railo 3.1 and ACF8. (Mike Schierberl)

Changed in version 1.4.3:

- Fixed another bug when using with PowerMail.

Changed in version 1.4.2:

- Fixed bug where an exception was thrown about a missing function argument if also using PowerMail. This also resolves an issue that caused emails to sometimes not be sent.

Changed in version 1.4.1:

- Fixed unsubscribe links when using PowerMail by adding a form when email isn't specified.

Changed in version 1.4:

- Added support for PowerMail: http://powermail.riaforge.org
- Added unsubscribe form instead of direct link to unsubscribe

Changed in version 1.3.1:

- Fixed bug #4 ('Activation Complete' page doesn't render, but activation does complete)

Changed in version 1.3:

- Fixed bug #2 (Scheduled jobs fail when blog is not the default website)
- Fixed bug #3 (Error thrown trying to serialize json data)
- Enhancement: A total count of subscribers is displayed on the subscriber management panel.
- New feature: Compose a custom Rich HTML email and send it to your subscribers.

Changed in version 1.2:

- Added ability to add a text-blurb to the pod content.
- Updated for Mango 1.4's new "upgrade" functionality

Changed in version 1.1.3:

- Fixed bug where plugin won't run on case-sensitive operating systems.
- Updated JSONUtil.cfc to work on Railo.
- Some even more minor (if you can believe it) fixes and changes.

Changed in version 1.1.2:

- Added {authorEmail} variable in From Email field on settings page; will send the email 'from' the post author's email address.

Changed in version 1.1:

- Support for double opt-in user validation requirement, as a new setting on the settings page.
- Subscriber management, export, and import has been added to the settings page.
- Prompt the blog administrator to visit the settings page upon activation, to configure.
- Minor bug fixes:
--- Fixed display for custom event (Non-pod display wasn't displaying anything! Whoops!)
--- Fixed bug: Blog default "from" email address was always used instead of user-specified override.
--- Fixed bug: Unsubscribe worked across all blogs in the same database; is now blog-specific.
--- Fixed bug: Signup pod wouldn't work on child pages (ie: /archives/...) because a relative path led to a 404. This has been switched to an absolute path that should work no matter where the pod is displayed.

Last Update:

- Fixed a bug sending emails on Railo 3.1 and ACF8. (Mike Schierberl)
