Hello All,

Sitemap Generator v2.7 has been released.

   * xml sitemap is now template based, which allows to integrate xsl stylesheet into your sitemap. Templates are defined in: sitemap_index_tpl.xml, sitemap_xml_tpl.xml and sitemap_ror_tpl.xml files.
   * priority attribute can be assigned automatically by sitemap generator script now, just enable corresponding checkbox in configuration. Priority is descending with depth level: the highest priority is assigned to your homepage and the lower values are set for other pages, depending on how many "clicks" it takes to reach the page.
   * minor bug fixes and improvements
