It has been a while,.
but just wanted to say that there will be a news/update section soon. In there we will give you information about things that are going to happen or did happen. Just some info to get you informed.
Some of you did probably see it but we do have a Github account, and it's located at: github.com/jemproject
. At that site you'll find a folder called "JEM-11-CONVERSION", this is the folder with a pre-testversion of JEM. We're trying to make a test version available around 1 July (this year B) ) so you can download it easily and test it.
At that same github location you can find the issue/bugtracker for that version, issues can also be posted here in the forum. You can take a peak to see what's going on. Remember: Several issues will be fixed before 1 July.
info about the current version.
- To begin: it's basically Eventlist v1.1 with several bugfixes & minor improvements
- It does have the options of EL v1.1
- The tablestructure is also a lot the same
- it has a new imageclass, thumbs generating is better
- it supports Joomla 2.5.6 and higher
- it will have 2 modules (basic & wide)
- it will have 3 plugins (mailer, comments, search)
- searching is fixed, it had some troubles with v1.1
After that release we will be looking at the feature requests, needed to get it listed in the JED, and we'll be looking at the internal code of the models/controllers/forms etc.. but that's for the long run.
Some more info:
At the moment we're concentrating at Joomla 2.5.6 and higher. But did try to install it in Joomla 3.0 and and at first sight it seems to be running, but the layout is in the back is not nice and there are probably some other issues. We will be looking at Joomla 3 later on.
Upgrading from Joomla 1.5, Eventlist v1.1 to JEM
If you have Joomla 1.5 with Eventlist v1.1 you won't have much trouble with upgrading as the tablestructure is a lot the same. There will be some documentation about the export/import process at that time.
We will be using Transifex (website) for translating.
Well, perhaps i've forgotten to mention something or said it wrong but if so there is always someone to correct me
