CUpdater - get yourself notified about new updates

CUpdater - get yourself notified about new updates

You really like the update functionality in the joomla 2.5 installer? We do too, but we got kinda bored. Each time we wanted to check if there are any new extensions updates we had to login into our website, go to the extension manager -> click update -> click find updates -> wait 5sec -> if there is nothing - well done dear, but you'll have to come again tomorrow...

O. Schwab got really bored by this routine and spoke with me about that 3 days ago. Then we thought - wouldn't it be great if there was a joomla plugin that could check for updates for us and send us a mail if there are! Well, there is one now!

Transifex - a developer experience

Disappointing. I didn't think for a second that I'll say it, but so far my experience with transifex is really disappointing. If it wasn't for opentranslators.org I would not bother with them actually.

First of all let me say that I value what they try to do! I know that it is not easy to satisfy everyone and I also understand that my disappointment is largely connected with the fact that I'm new to the platform. In the next few paragraphs I'll share my experience hoping that I can save you from losing 2 days in trying to upload your extension translation files to transifex. I also hope that this blog post will be of use to transifex and it will help them improve their system.

Joomla 2.5 / Year 2012 / End of the world???

Since now the first beta of Joomla 2.5 is published I thought that it would be good to make a short blog post to explain where we are and where we are going.

Currently all our extensions are working on joomla 1.5, 1.7 and 2.5, yes you read it right! Joomla 2.5!!! So, if you are running joomla 1.7 and you want to update to 2.5 (STABLE) - don't hesitate - everything should work as before! (btw - Joomla 1.7 reaches end of life in February 2012 and Joomla 1.5 in April 2012 - so prepare to update/migrate guys!)
