Joomla Leadership Adopts New Structure & Methodology

Joomla Leadership Adopts New Structure & Methodology | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
Last week the combined Joomla leadership teams (Community Leadership Team (CLT), the Board of Directors of Open Source Matters, Inc. (OSM), and the Production Leadership Team (PLT)), voted to adopt the New Structure & Methodology proposal, by a vote of 19 to 9.

Starting in the fall, the proposal was put through several rounds of leadership, working group and community feedback, and underwent numerous revisions before the proposal was put to a vote.

The structure team that worked on the proposal was formed at JandBeyond 2014 one year ago under the motto of “Make it happen”, and is made up of three representatives from each of the three leadership teams. The team was given a mandate by the Joomla leadership at JAB to do this work, and that mandate was renewed at the joint leadership summit in Cancun in November, 2014. The work of the structure team built on and drew from discussions and research that started at a joint leadership summit in 2011, and from the Governance Working Group research and idea catalogue.

As can be expected in a community as diverse and passionate as Joomla’s, there has been a wide spectrum of reaction to the proposal and resulting vote. Since a two-thirds majority in favor of the proposal was required to carry the motion, the vote was very close and there are some strong dissenting voices.

Gantry 5 RC1 Released

Gantry 5 RC1 Released | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
Gantry 5 is a complete, ground-up rewrite of the Gantry framework. Taking advantage of the latest Web technologies, Gantry 5 is built for the needs of tomorrow's websites, today.

We wanted to create a framework that benefited from years of user feedback we received from Gantry 1-4. By opening up our development process to the community on Github, and creating a chat room where beta testers and Gantry users could communicate with our team directly, we were able to take Gantry 5 to a level that wouldn't have been possible before.

This is the first version of Gantry that is community driven, not just community inspired.

By shedding a lot of the weight that comes with maintaining backward compatibility through multiple major updates, we were able to create a slimmer, faster user experience. We added human-readable solutions such as YAML configuration and an all-new touch-friendly user interface. The Gantry 5 Administrator is simple to use with drag-and-drop functionality and no programming experience required.

I can understand the need for businesses to make a profit but when you take a prebuilt product, change the name and then offer a pro version with no extra features, what's that about?

Socialize Easily With EasySocial 1.3.26 | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
While we're fixing EasyBlog 5 for the next beta release, the developer team managed to allocate some of their rest time to build the next 'minor' release of EasySocial, EasySocial 1.3.26. To be honest,  'minor' is not the precise word to use because when I look at the changelog, I am baffled at how long the list is. Not to mention that when I was briefed by Mark; it took me quite some time to digest that this is actually a 'minor' release.

HWD MediaShare version 2 has been released today and comes with big new features and better design. The media gallery is powered by the Joomla! 3 CMS and Bootstrap framework, which makes it easy to share media on desktops, tablets and mobiles. All this and more makes version 2 the biggest and most exciting released we've put out to the community.

It is now even easier to upload and process large video files on your server, or import media from other networks such as Youtube, Vimeo and Dailymotion.

Joomla Moodle Integration Guide - Super Moodle

Joomla Moodle Integration Guide - Super Moodle | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it

Syncing the content of different management tools and features is one of the efficiencies that technology advancements bring and the Joomla Moodle integration is a perfect example. There are various ways in which integration can be achieved, although the most common involves a third party feature. Integration basically deals with creating an interface shared by both applications. This interface enables data sharing and automatic updating of contents in one application using another. While integration yields many benefits in terms of automation and simplified content management, not all software will achieve the perfect form of integration required to yield claimed benefits. It is therefore important to learn a few things and keenly evaluate each integration option before using them.

Fabrik The Joomla Application builder - version 3.3 released | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
We have fixed a bug which could lead to a SQL injection attack. An update is strongly recommended

We ironed out a couple of issues that were blocking the use of Fabrik with Joomla 3.4

Most select lists (CDD) can now be rendered using Chosen

Improved index handling, this should increase page load times for list which use joins, or which have multi-select database join elements. The indexes are created on new or on save.

We've been seeing more issues with the fact we use Require.js to asynchronously load our Javascript, specifically with certain jQuery plugins such as widgetkit. These issues should be resolved now as we ensure that require.js is loaded last.
