Version 3.0.0 is available for download.

I am happy to announce a major update for the Export List Plugin. The main focus in this version is on simplifying report customization tasks and allowing the user to perform more customizations right from the plugin's interface. For example, now you can customize the look-and-feel of HTML reports using themes (see report samples on the plugin's home page), you can group reports by almost any metadata field - to do that you can simply pick a different menu option. You no longer have to modify your templates for that! You can also switch between several options for columns in your reports using the new concept of selectable fieldsets. And if needed, you easily create your own fieldset using the interactive Fieldset Editor.
The template mechansim has been completely redesigned in this update. The new engine features LUA based expressions, it supports loops and conditional statements, and add the ability to invoke functions to fine-tune the output.
However, the new mechanism does not support old templates. If you need help converting your existing customizations over to the new platform - I would be happy to assist you.

Changes in this version:

New Features

  • Completely redesigned the internal template mechanism. New templates provide support for logical and formatting operations in LUA (the internal scripting language of Lightroom) and the ability to include sub-templates.
  • Added the concept of fieldsets to facilitate the customization of data columns without having to modify the entire template.
  • Fieldset Editor for interactively customizing report columns.
  • Now you can use any metadata field to generate grouped reports. The "Group By" field is now specified by the user at runtime; grouping parameters no longer need to be included in the template definition.
  • Addded support for new DNG format options (Camera Raw 6.6 and 7.1) introduced in LR5.

Fixes and Improvements

  • Improved the look-and-feel of HTML reports, added support for CSS themes.
  • New simple XML template.
  • Export Dialog - long path string no longer push the Choose button out of the window area.
  • Export Dialog - the Choose Folder dialog now opens at the currently selected path.
  • Fixed the exception when generating HTML reports containing offline photos.
  • Fixed the issue with generating HTML output when there are video files selected.
  • Other minor improvements and fixes.
