AJAX Chat - Version 0.8.1.1 released

This is a bugfix release.
The fix is only one space character added to address a bug happening with the Opera browser and related to the display of the deletion link for chat messages.
Seems like Opera messes up in some situations when displaying floating links without content.

AJAX Chat - Version 0.7.3 released

Version 0.7.3 of AJAX Chat introduces a huge improvement for shoutbox installations:
By default, the shoutbox now delayes the chat update until the user sets the focus to the input field. Until then only teaser content is shown which requires no login to the chat view.
This helps reducing server load and prevents every user visiting a page showing the shoutbox to get logged in immediately.
