Development history:

This plugin was offered to the community by lukanus (Łukasz Miłkowski <>) end of 2011. He was active till February 2012.

In May 2014 ngiger (Niklaus Giger niklaus.giger) decided to maintain this plugin and bring in the various improvements made by others.

March 2016 klimas7 (Boguslaw Klimas) he began to the care and maintenance of the plugin.. We will see … :)
