Update 2: Version 22.214.171.124 has been replaced. The newest version fixes several minor issues, improves the styling, and makes the gadget more friendly to neighboring gadgets. From now on, I will put all the updates for version 1.1, including all subversions, in a single file so that you will get the updates automatically.
Update: Version 126.96.36.199 replaces version 188.8.131.52
I just finished work on version 184.108.40.206 (deprecated) that increases the customizability of Last Comments, allowing you to enter asterisks (*) and underscores (_) in your custom text without ambiguity by using the plus sign (+) in front of them. It tested out OK on Internet Explorer 8, Google Chrome 6, Firefox 3, Safari 5, and Opera 10.
