!JoomlaComment 4.0 RC1 released

Hey guys! It is been a long time since we released joomlacomment 4.0 beta2. Actually we were planning to skip 4.0 stable since beta2 was doing pretty well (no major bugs etc). But well, nobody is perfect. Recently a security flaw was discovered in all previous versions of JoomlaComment, including beta2. Naturally, a new release had to be made to address this.

The new RC1 release here today has patched the security, and has additional compatibility fixes and tweaks (since beta 2). Now it is the best time to update to the most stable and secure release yet. If you downloaded RC1 from the forums already, you are encouraged to update too as additional fixes have been made.

BiggieSmalls another Webinar :)

The people that are receiving the newsletter know that I was organizing a webinar for the first 15 people that bought BiggieSmalls. Well, this was a little bit bad organized, because that 15 people didn't have time on the same day for the webinar. So I ended up, explaining only to Tom from Utah how to configure BiggieSmalls :) I hope you learned a lot Tom!

This time I want to make everything better for you! So the first 15 people that write in this blog post are going to be subscribed for the next webinar. Then I will send an e-mail to those 15 people asking them to write when they have time for this in doodle.

You have no idea what troubles I had to release this template this morning :) First I didn't have internet connection at home yesterday evening. Today 30 minutes ago I deleted the whole site, while trying to delete a single email account :D Thanks God that the recicle bin was invented!

But I'm not going to bother you with my problems anymore :)! You all want just to know what's up with BiggieSmalls!?! It is out there finally, ready to be downloaded.

As a launch special I'm giving you the following deal. Till the 11th of September there is only one version available! This is the developer version of the template(which means, that you can use it on unlimited sites) at the price of the personal level license(3 sites). This way you can save some 70$ on this template!
