Part I - Upcoming Product Versioning and Packaging workflow.

Introduction:

As mentioned in the Top 10 of 2010. We are all set to introduce enhanced product download and upgrade system for our users. JA Update System comprises of New Versioning and Packaging system, Update component for Joomla, to update JA Products right from the Joomla Back-end and complete overhaul of JA product management. The overview is divided into two parts. Have fun reading it.

Eight months of development has gone into this system and currently the new system is under test phase and we are pleased with its performance so far. However, It will still take some time for it be pronounced as Stable and to be put into action.

This is to announce that keeping in view and in respect of the Open Source Matters ( OSM ) Trademark Policies & Guidelines governing the Joomla CMS, we have decided to update the Terms of Service and Licensing info, pertaining to all Joomla related products, w.e.f 01/04/2010, all the PHP code of  JoomlArt's Joomla Products (Templates (JATC) and Extensions (JAEC) ), would be governed by GNU/GPLv2 GPL version 2.0 license. We had been preparing for this for quite some time and thats why T3 Framework was released as GNU/GPL and all the latest releases of JA JobBoard and JA Voice are open-source, we took off the ion-cube from these enterprise extensions in December 2009 releases. Now, its time to extend the licensing to other Joomla products. However, to avoid off-shelf rip-offs and re-distribution at large, only the PHP files would be covered by GPL license, the images / CSS / JS elements etc, would remain under Proprietary License of JA, and their usage restricted by Terms of Services governing the JATC / JAEC Club membership and subscription privileges. The above said notices will be updated on JA main site on 01/04/2010.

We love Joomla!Great event, great conference, great friends & great Joomla! JandBeyond 2010 - It was so amazing! And having had a chance to be there as both an attendee and speaker, presenting the JoomlArt JA T3 Framework, I have to say it is one of the best conferences I have ever been to. Not only is it an "academic" conference where people can share knowledge & experience, but it is also a fun & community spirit building event.

In John Brett words. John Brett is our Forum Super Moderator and attended this function

You just had to know Joomla Day New England was going to be quite different!  And JoomlArt just had to be a part! 

But when I packed my bags and headed out on the 11 hour,  700+ kilometers drive due north of Washington, D.C....past Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston...into the tranquil hills and tiny villages of southern Vermont...little did I realize the welcome I would receive.  (see picture)

I know!...but hang in there.  It actually all makes sense!

Hallo all JA members, Just want to let all know that JA contest running on 99design.com has been extended by one more week and is available for entry submission till 2/Aug/2010.

Why it is extended?

The contest has been running on 99design.com for 2 weeks now and Guess what, we have received 100 entries till today. However, it looks like we have NOT received any design from JA members so it might have been ignored by many talents amongst our 200,000 members. Thus, we have decided to extend it by one more week so that you can take time to put efforts and have the chance to win the cash. The prize is increased! As a plus, the winner will be awarded with a free 1 year - JA Developer Membership (cost of $499) along with the original prize of$2500. Hurry, entry acceptance closes by 2/Aug...

As you know, at the end of June we completely relaunched our site in Joomla 1.5 and redesigned the look and feel. We have been receiving great feedback and thought we should share our case study with the community. We will describe in short the process our team went through. But don't be scared, we do not write screeds about how to upgrade Joomla1.0 to 1.5x. Rather we will tell you why we completely revamped our website – what are the main objectives are we trying to achieve.
