I've found some time lately and have done some minor updates to thing. These will be released as soon as I have time to package them properly.
Some of the things to come:
Rewritten version of Jx Title Flag for Joomla 1.5 native
Minor bug fixes to Jobline, fixing a few backend issues.
A new release candidate of Jambook 1.0, which should fix most known major problems. It also contains importer for another guestbook component, BookJoomlas.
This site, Jx Development, will finally be upgraded to Joomla 1.5.
I'm only half-way through updating Mamblog to work with Joomla 1.5 yet, but will hopefully get that finished some time too.
Complete redisign of Jx Development with upgrade, hopefully making it prettier, as well as easier to find some information.
Updates to Jx List Files with a few new features.
New plugin that I'm using on this site to show the "Component Showcase" boxes. This is a sort of templating system that allows the admin to use the same html for different data easily. In conjunction with a content includer this has made me able to include these little boxes in different places on the site.
Jobline v1.2 has been a long time in the making, but I'll hopefully be able to release a beta version soon. I've released an alpha version to a few people already and I've been getting good feedback on it.
That's probably not all, but it's all I can think of right now.
The next version of Jobline will be version 1.2. This has been in development for a long time, and it will contain lots of new features. I'm currently working on adding in extra features added for clients and cleaning up the code, fixing bugs in all the new stuff etc.
Even though most of the work is already done, there is still much left to do. I'm working on this off and on, whenever I have time, but it is going to take a while. I can't give any esitimation on when I will have this version finished, it will be released when it is done.
For those who want to chip in and help sponsor the development of this version I've set up a donation page. If you want to speed up the release of this version, please consider making a donation.
Read on for a list of features that will be added.
The module Jx Latest Commented has been updated with the ability to list the latest entries from Jambook. This is basically the same functionality as in the module Jx Show Jambook. The version for Joomla 1.5 has also been updated with some fixes to work better with Joomla 1.5 Native.
Jambook is an open source Joomla guestbook component with spam protection and many customization options. It has been written from scratch to be easy to use and yet have powerful functionality for the administrator.
For those of you interested in switching from other guestbook components there is an import feature, which in this version can import entries from AkoBook v3.42 and EasyBook v1.1.
This is the the first release candidate before the stable v1.0. All outstanding bugs have been fixed, and a lot of stuff has been tweaked. There are even a few minor new features here and there.
