Udja Comments for Joomla 1.6 - 1.0 RC1

Well, it's been an eventful couple of weeks and I apologise for taking so long to get this second version, but I'm so happy with testing and the updates that I have jumped from beta 0.3 rite to RC1. The reason for this is I don't intend on any major bugs being left over. One issue is due to a mistake on the original release of the beta 0.3 will not be automatically upgradeable, however, you can install udja comments rc1 straight over the top of udja comments 0.3 beta with no config/data loss.
