Hot on the trail of the BNS Featured Category plugin update comes the latest version of the BNS Featured Tag plugin. These plugins have virtually the same functionality except one does categories and the other does tags. Their changlogs read almost identical, with the odd exception. I generally work with BNS Featured Category first, work out any bugs that may creep into the code then apply all of the changes to BNS Featured Tag.
One benefit of the new Description option is you can create a tag (or category, if you are using BNS Featured Category); make it the first one in your list; and, then use it to display introductory text for the plugin. Below is a screen snippet of the BNS Featured Tag with Tag Description checked to give you an idea.
PS: The color scheme and styling of the plugin are from an upcoming theme I am working on. The plugin itself gets almost all of its style from the active theme.
