New version of FPW Post Instructions had been released today. It features multiple rich text editors ( WordPress 3.3+ ) and has its contextual help modified.
New version 1.3.9 of FPW Category Thumbnails had been released today. It features code enhancements for version 3.3 of WordPress and general code cleanup.
Version 1.3.4 of FPW Category Thumbnails plugin has been released today. It has many improvements over previous version: preview of thumbnails, revamped media-upload thickbox for image id extraction, option to display / hide dashboard widget and recoded bulk actions to reduce memory requirements.
This is a maintenance release of the plugin which fixes problems with quotes being escaped ( eg. 'text' becomes 'text' ) when read from database. This problem was related to post types of 'page', 'link', and custom post types.
The plan for version 1.2.2 is to add contextual help which is missing since initial release.

I could not find in wordpress.org repository any plugins doing exactly what I wanted and decided to write my own. It started as a plugin just for myself. Exactly 12 lines of code. Then I decided to share it with others. And here it is - FPW Category Thumbnails. Click on a link above this post to see the plugin in WordPress repository.
