CHANGES IN THIS VERSION v1.1:

Shipping modules have changed (none of the other modifications made from the previous version have changed).
Inclusion of new gif/image files i.e. AusPost logos.
Changes have been made to enable communication to the new AusPost server to retrieve shipping costs and changes on how the API key's are used for live and test mode, plus some minor wording changes to shipping services.
The International modules have new names (and new filenames) with some slight differences to delivery services but the Domestic modules have the same names and no changes to the delivery services. Please visit AusPost website for further information on International shipping services at the following link: https://auspost.com.au/parcels-mail/sending-overseas/international-delivery-options
The changes to the International and Domestic shipping modules are mainly due to the original AusPost contact server being decommissioned in the new year (2017). The new server came online during 2016 and also introduced new API service codes. Changes are also due to some International services being discontinued with the introduction of more simplified International services.
