Today we’re excited to announce the first Joomla! 1.7.0 release and celebrate it as the most significant JoomPlace component update ever!


JoomBlog 1.0.2 is a staring component of this release

JoomBlog component is a fully fledged blogging tool developed to set-up your blog right away and manage it easily.

Now JoomBlog is both Joomla! 1.6.0 and 1.7.0 compatible and integrated with the third-party components we are in love with: JomSocial, Disquis, AddThis. Over the last couple of months we’ve created a pack of most expected changes otherwise left JoomBlog elegant and free of tons of cluttered elements.
