Release notes 

Helioviewer.org 2.3.0 is an major release focusing back-end improvements, reuse, and the movie generation experience. Support has been added for embedding Helioviewer.org into third-party websites, and JSONP support makes it easier for new versions of the front-end to be created which interact with the main Helioviewer.org back-end. Similarly, the front-end has been
rewritten to allow for easier creation of custom front-end clients without having to reimplement a tiling system, etc.

The back-end queueing system (Helioqueuer) has been ported from Ruby to PHP to allow for better integration with the rest of the back-end, and the movies table structure has been modified for improved time estimation and similarity searching. Additional options (frame-rate and movie length) are offered to allow users further control over the movies they create and the duration option has been moved to a more obvious location.
