Minor enhancement to IP.Gallery feed blocks in IP.Content

This is just a quick update to let everyone know of a small enhancement you can expect to see in the next IP.Gallery release.

We recently noticed that you could not create IP.Content feed blocks to pull featured images from IP.Gallery. We felt that this was a small and easily correctable oversight, so we added a filter option when creating IP.Gallery feed blocks in IP.Content to allow you to choose whether to pull only featured images or not. You can expect to see this new option beginning with the IP.Gallery 5.0.4 release.

Adding filters to IP.Content feed blocks is a generally easy process, depending upon what you are trying to filter by. Naturally, some types of filters can make the block much more complex, but with the example above of filtering by retrieving featured images, we needed only 2 language strings and 10 distinct lines of code.

What types of block filters have you always felt would be easy but useful additions?
