After 4 official releases of templates for 1.5, I notices that we should change the way in releasing templates to make sure that all bugs are free. So what is the changes?
BETA RELEASES FOR 1.5:
1.5 Beta releases will be released during 1st-5th (1st templates) or 15th – 20th (2nd template) every month. The version for Joomla 1.0.x will not be released at this time
STABLE RELEASE FOR 1.5.x + 1.0.x
Stable download for both 1.5 and 1.0 will be released after 4-5 working days after the 1.5 Beta released
HOW LONG 1.0.x WILL BE SUPPORTED
Though Joomla 1.5 now taking priority over 1.0.x in design process, JA will continue to support 1.0.x version until Joomla.org discontinues the support for the 1.0.x versions or at a suitable time when all other extensions/template providers does not release updates for 1.0.x. I believe it will be in about 6 months.
BETA USAGE Q &A Q: I am a paid customer and I should be able to use the stable templates. Why do I have to use the Beta version? A: You can choose to download and try the Beta or not. However, we are appreciated if you can use and report any problem to the forum so that we can update and provide fixes to the official releases.
Q: What if I download the Beta and customize everything then JA release the updated package? A: We are happy if you download and try this package to see if it really suit your tastes. Once we release the official package, we will let you know what files we have changes so that you do not have to apply your customization all over again.
