What Are the Plans for Joomla 3.5?

What Are the Plans for Joomla 3.5? | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
What's new in Joomla 3.5?

There are four main changes coming in 3.5.

Nic Dionysopoulos from Akeeba has added a system to provide email notifications for Joomla updates.Hannes Papenberg has been working for years on improvements to Joomla's routing system. He even rana fundraising campaign to support his work. Hannes is developing a final Pull Request, and after that it's time to do thorough testing.com_messages will be removed. We've covered the Messages extension before, saying that few people understand how to use it.Drupal and WordPress have done this for a while. Now Joomla will have a plugin to gather data about what platform it's users are on. This data will include the PHP version, database type/version, Joomla version and OS type/version. The data will be anonymised data and there will be an opt-out feature. This information should make it possible for the Joomla team to make more informed decisions about which versions and platforms to support.

Gantry 5.0 Released

Gantry 5.0 Released | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
Gantry 5 started as a ground-up rewrite of the popular Gantry framework for Joomla and WordPress. We wanted to do away with a lot of carried over legacy code and solutions to keep everything backward compatible.

We took a close look at user feedback we received with Gantry 1-4, and planned the new Gantry around what the Web would look like in years to come.

Gantry 5 uses the latest Web technologies. Our focus during development is on creating a framework that was as easy to use as it was powerful. Gantry 5 has became a different framework from anything else available today.

YAML-driven configuration and Twig templating are just a couple of the key features that make Gantry 5 work.

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.

Gantry 5: A Template Developer's Point of View

Gantry 5: A Template Developer's Point of View | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it
To be a template developer these days is quite exciting! You express your ideas and emotions with the products you release, you learn new things every day, and all this in a very big and competitive industry!

But the good template developer should always be up-to-date with the latest technologies and tools in order to stay competitive and develop modern, optimized products.

One of these tools is the Gantry 5 Framework, and as a template developer, I would like to share my experience with it, how it makes my day-to-day job easier, how it helps me to develop great templates, and the features in it that I love the most!

As the guys at RocketTheme say, "Gantry 5 is built with the modern Web in mind." It really is! It incorporates the latest Web technologies, such as: HTML5, CSS3, SCSS, the Flexbox model, and so on and so forth. All of these things give the developers amazing flexibility, and allow them to quickly build great sites.

JCE 2.5.0 released

JCE 2.5.0 released | Just Joomla! | Scoop.it

JCE 2.5.0 "Stable" has been released. This update includes a number of changes and bug fixes. Thank you to everyone who tested the Beta and Release Candidate versions.

Some time ago we introduced a method to combine and compress the editor's javascript and css files, resulting in a single javascript or css file for the browser to download. This generally results in improved load performance, as the browser only has to download one file.

Some users have found, and reported, that for some reason or other, this feature does not work on their site, or they choose not to use it. We have therefore done some of this combining when the extension is packaged, resulting in fewer javascript and css files in the extension, and therefore fewer files to load by the editor and add-ons.

Enabling the compression options will still combine these files into a single javascript and css file.

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.
