- With this version, a Smarty variable representing a flag is automatically created for each language installed on your site. This enable you to put the flags to select languages inside your theme. For example, if you would like to put the English flag in the header of your theme, you can use this <{$lang_image_english}>

- Another Smarty variable have been added that contains the link to change the language. With that, you can put the image or text that you want in your theme. For example <a href="<{$lang_link_french}>">Click here for the French version !</a>

- Another Smarty variable have been added to represent the selected language : <{$lang_name}>. This is usefull for 'multilingual' images. For exemple, you have created XOOPS_URL/images/french/ and XOOPS_URL/images/english/. You can use the <{$lang_name}> to replace the folder by the selected language name.
