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):

Sunday, 26 May 2013 00:00
jdownloads_logo_bigWe received a bunch of request from users, to make in a first step the current jDownloads 1.9.x version compatible to Joomla 3.1. We have done this in the last days and can as result publish today a first compatible jDownloads release for Jomla 3.1.

This version has the same functionality as the jDownloads v1.9.x for Joomla 2.5. Included are language files for 15 countries. Please mind, that the known limitations are the same, as in the 1.9.1 version for Joomla 2.5. We have also published first modules and the content plugin for Joomla 3.1. For more informations read the download details page.

The previously announced complete new jDownloads 2.5/3.1 release is still in work and will be published this summer.

usersFor the next weeks it is planned, that the testing team starts with his work on the new jDownloads 2.5 version. But the team is shrinked over the last years, so we have not enought members at the moment to test the new version extensive and in an acceptable timeframe.

So we search new members for the team! When you have just a little free time and experiences with Joomla 2.5 and jDownloads 1.9, you are welcome!

For beeing part of this greate team, you only need a user account in the support forum. Afterwards send me (username: Arno) a short private message, that you wishes to be added to the team. That's all! But please mind, that it is useful only to join to the team, when you have experiences. You can not use any test releases on your productive website!

Please note, that we have changed the future release identifiers (see table list). So it is easier for the users, to find the correct release for the installed Joomla system.

jDownloads development status PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 09 November 2012 00:00
hot_newsI recently received a bunch of request by email about the upcoming version of jDownloads 2.0, the current development status and what is planned for the lastest Joomla version 3.0.

Here are a few informations about the current situation:
  • At this time, there are separate version for Joomla 1.5.x and Joomla 2.5.x. Unfortunately the core team has changed a great number of things in the 3.0 release. Therefore it is impossible to use the same installation files for Joomla 2.5 and 3.0 at the same time, because of that there must be an own version for Joomla 3.0. The edition for joomla 3.0 is in progress. But it is based on the version 1.9 and does not contain any changes of the jD 2.0.
  • I currently work on the complete rewritten jD 2.0 (with MVC structure) every day, but cannot do this the whole time. It is a lot of work, to create the source code from the ground up. But I have to accomplish this, to ensure, jDownloads is even full compatible to the joomla core functions and his techniques in the future.
  • To create the backend functionality is the most work for a Joomla component. This task is about 80 percent finished and I hope, this operation will be completed in the next weeks.
  • Afterwards the mission is, to rewrite the frontend and I think it needs about 6 weeks to be done. The frontend output shall be still more flexible than in the current version.
Update 2013-01-21:
I know that many users wait on the new version. But all good things needs time
("Soon ripe, soon rotten"). I do what i can, but many new features must be added. So i will not call again a circa publishing date. I can only say: It is ready when it is ready.
