I've just started using this and it's great, thanks.

One thing though. I've set up an alert for First and Last contacts and when the emails come through, the first one says "First Contact Alert!" in the subject but the message body says Last Contact. The reverse is the same when the last contact email comes through, the subject says "Last Contact Alert!" but the message body says First Contact.

Thanks for the error report Toshi, I have checked my Twitter developer account and PlaneAlerter has been restricted to API read access only for some reason. I haven't received any emails or information as to why that happened. I have submitted a form to Twitter support to try and resolve the issue. Until the API access issue is fixed tweets won't work for anyone using PlaneAlerter.

Just uploaded 2.1.7, Twitter should now be fixed. In the new update mentions in tweets are no longer allowed as per the Twitter automation rules. The reason for the API access being restricted was that they detected large volumes of unsolicited mentions. Also in the new update, Twitter error messages now include extra information, and the distance property should now work for countries using commas as decimal separators thanks to Recoil016 on Github. Because the Twitter API key has changed, all versions prior to 2.1.7 will now show authentication errors when trying to access the Twitter API.

Just found a pretty major bug today and released a fix for it. Any condition that has a trigger with comparison type equal or not equal, and an empty value will not work prior to this version. So any alerts for registration/callsign empty etc would never be sent. This was due to properties from VRS being null if they did not exist, and null does not equal an empty string.

New update with a few more bug fixes, main one should hopefully solve some alerts being sent that shouldn't be. In some cases a check may happen between an aircraft appearing on VRS and it's database info or other properties like callsign/squawk etc loading, and PlaneAlerter wasn't checking if the conditions no longer match when sending the alert. Full changelog is on GitHub.
