New Download Source for Translations! PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 08 November 2014 13:55

guidebooksSince publishing the first jDownloads version for Joomla 1.7, our translators have used the transifex service,  This is used by Joomla! core and many other Joomla! components.

At that time it was not easy to get the translated files and to install them in Joomla because in this old method:
- administrators wanting to get translations had to be registered on;
- every file had to be downloaded and renamed manually;
- every file had be copied via FTP to the correct Joomla folder.

To simplify the effort we have now included a new possibility. For each individual language there is a simple download button which gets a complete installation package with all translated files for your chosen language. Presently there are about 25 files for each language covering the component itself, the modules and the plugins.

But before you do download a language package please check how much of your required language file has been translated.

So visit  the jDownloads Documentation Centre,, to get the latest jDownloads translations for your required language(s).

If you have any questions, please use the support forum. Many thanks.

A special thank you goes to the developer of the 'ctransifex' component!

URGENT - Security Update for 1.9 series PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 13 September 2014 00:00

jdownloads_logo_bigJD 1.9.x Series users -  Please update to jD1.9.1.6 (Joomla 2.5) or jD1.9.2.11 (Joomla 3.x)

The Bug, which is fixed in the latest releases, allowed users without the appropriate permissions to upload files. This has been exploited from sometime in late July by a hacker who has uploaded malicious files on some sites. As well as updating please also check any file uploaded since then to see if you recognise it and DELETE if you do not recognise it.  Some people may prefer to restore their complete website from a backup, including the entire database.

Note: check at first the jDownloads upload root folder, the /images/jdownloads/screenshots and the /images/jdownloads/screenshots/thumbnails folders.

For Joomla! 2.5: get jD1.9.1.6

For Joomla! 3.x: get jD1.9.2.11

hot_newsThe works on the new jDownloads release 2.5 are still in progress. I know that i have worked now much longer on the new release as before calculated. But the new release is very complex and some new features are not so easy to integrate.

The frontend output needs still a few weeks but then will we start with final tests. It is possible, that we will publish the new version in a first step as an 'alpha' release.

Here can you view a few screenshots from the new version (in this example with Joomla 2.5):
