Version 1.8 adds a widget to display a list of current matches on your site.
In addition, version 1.8 starts using CSS support to enable better customization (e.g. in a child theme you may have created for your site).
Along the process of adding CSS support, a number of shortcode outputs do not use a table layout anymore. Not all tables have been converted yet, esp. the ranking table and the table of matches for the specific league and knock-out formats. This will become available in the next release.
