The last chapter of 2013 is about to be turned and it is just time to look back and remember all the events that took place in 2013. This year was full of content both for Joomla! Community and JoomPlace team and we decided it would be great to have a look at it one more time.
What did 2013 bring for Joomla?
The year was quite controversial for Joomla. From one side, a variety of available features added as Joomla! 3.x developed:
- New languages features added in Joomla! 3.0.3 such as Installation of language packs when installing Joomla! and extended Multilanguage functionality (from Menu items to Articles and Categories);
- Joomla! 3.1.0 Tag Field that made information search for users more convenient;
- JLayout Improvements for Joomla! 3.2 , focused on flexibility improvements for third party developers;
- Content version, multi-language support, enhanced user interface, improved template manager and other feature added to recently released Joomla! 3.2 version;
- Joomla! Framework 1.0 Release that became an important step towards Joomla! Evolution.
And from the other side, a number of bugs and issues that appeared to present in Joomla! 3.2 and closely related with a quantity of added features. However, we should mention our appreciation for all the Community members’ efforts on releasing Joomla! 3.2.1 version, resolving most of the issues.
What should we expect in 2014?
The bugs are being fixed, project development continues and coming year can become revolutionary (Joomla! Community, before taking a holiday, mentioned its intention of realizing Joomla! 3.3 in March 2014). There are no details yet, but the discussions on forums, google groups and mailing lists are in progress and the results will become known in the nearest future.
What about JoomPlace?
JoomPlace team will continue adding new features to the existing products, constantly working on improving their performance and making your experience more enjoyable. We ended 2013 with updating Survey Force Deluxe and JomSocial plugins and are planning to start 2014 with a new product release. The details will become available soon.
A New Year is around the corner and JoomPlace sincerely hopes that in 2014 we will go side by side with you, our customers!
Happy coming 2014!
