It has been a while since I posted an update here. In my last note, I spoke of Joomla! 1.7 as being nearly released and of updating this site to 1.7 when it was generally available. Well here we are now with the release of Joomla! 2.5.
I can now present this new site, better late than never I guess. I have updated to J!2.5 and rebuilt this template to make use of some of the new features. Also (and more significantly perhaps) I have migrated the Support Forum to Kunena 1.7x!
What's this you say? Dropped Agora Forum for Kunena? Gave up on nZambi Forum? Well, the truth is, I just don't have the time to invest in my Forum Project at this point. nZambi Forum may not be dead, but it has been laid to rest... for now. I will dust it off and play with it from time to time, but it may never be ready for prime-time.
As far as Agora Forum goes, I have always liked Agora and because of my time with the Development Team I am pretty familiar with it. However, Kunena has grabbed my attention with their 1.7 release and especially with the upcoming 2.0 release which finally follows the Joomla! MVC pattern. The Kunena community is strong and I get much more satisfaction (and donations) from my Kunena extensions. A while ago I announced that I would no longer be developing for J!1.5 and in fact I will soon also drop support for any 1.5 extensions I have released. I'll be concentrating on developing for Kunena 2.0.
