AutoSave is now xbAutoSave and a number of the features and issues we talked about in Maintenance Monday #71 have been addressed and tackled. Have you ever been working on an article in Joomla and lost all your progress because when you finally went to save everything your session had timed out?

You can avoid that happening by using xbAutoSave for Joomla! A big shout out to Roger Creagh-Osborne for reviving this plugin (forking it from "CtrlS" by Chupurnov Valeriy) and continuing to work on it. How to setup and use "xbAutoSave" is what today's Maintenance Monday is all about.
