Minor fixes in Armadillo v2.7.2

Just a couple of days ago, a customer contacted me about a strange issue - certain categories not being displayed in the blog navigation links.

I was able to determine that this only occurred for categories that also had a tag which was exactly the same. In other words, if there was a category called "announcements" and also a tag called "announcements", then the category version wouldn't be displayed.

The problem came down to how the categories and tags were being retrieved from the database, and so I've released a fix to address this, as well and tweak a couple of minor issues.

It's always a good idea to keep up to date, but this particular release isn't a mission critical change if you don't have categories and tags that are exactly the same.

Let us know if you have any questions!

UPDATE: Somehow, it totally slipped my mind that this update to Armadillo now requires PHP 5.3 - which is pretty much universally available on all major hosting companies that we know of. If need be, make sure to change the PHP version on your hosting account to 5.3 or greater.
