Joomla Tutorials, info, Discussions and much more...

Dear Members,
As mentioned in the Top 10 for 2010 announcement and Its Overview, its time to release the preview as the systems have reached the beta stages and is under intense testing. Its a unique and never seen before system in Joomla! Sphere and i am sure, i have not seen anything like this before. Its a concept which was developed last year and after these 5-6 months of development, it has taken the shape.

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.

All the templates running on T3 Framework have been updated and Versions released in Downloads. The affected Templates are JA Teline III, JA Halite, JA Kyanite I, JA Kyanite II,   JA Seleni, JA Urani, JA Rasite, JA Lime, JA Mesolite II and JA Zeolite II. Important changes in these versions  are :  1. Upgrade to Latest T3 Framework Code.  2. RTL Language update / fixes. 3. Mega Menu Updates (Except Teline III).  Detailed Changelog is announced in respective template forum as sticky thread.
