Move to GitHub
- Published on Wednesday, 20 May 2015 14:33
Most certainly you realized that the development of JoomGallery slowed down a lot during the last months. We are still an Open Source project and everybody in our team works on JoomGallery in their free time which is cut short due to more important things like family, for example.
Thus, we decided to move the source code of JoomGallery into a public repository on GitHub. This way it is easier for people in the community to contribute code for bug fixes or new features.
We hope that many of you, who maybe already look around in the code to make changes that improve your personal website, will create pull requests against the JoomGallery repository or any other repository of the project. Even the smallest bug fixes help!
In the next weeks, we will move every extension that belongs to the JoomGallery projects (modules, plugins, migration scripts, ...) into their separate repositories in the JoomGallery organization on GitHub as well.
Also, we want to use GitHub as a discussion platform for the future of the gallery. For example, currently their are three issues open about the suggestion of removing certain features of JoomGallery in the coming versions:
- Plan for Removing the Java Upload
- Removal of Cooliris Integration
- Removal of Config Option 'Allow special characters in filenames for uploads'
Everybody is invited to participate in the discussions, especially if you have good reasons for not removing a certain functionality.
End of Support for JoomGallery 2.x
- Published on Wednesday, 13 May 2015 22:41
Since Joomla! 2.x is not supported anymore since last year, we decided to also stop the support of JoomGallery ACL 2.x (effective immediately).
While we continue to develop JoomGallery JUX 3.x there won't be any new features or bug fix releases for JoomGallery 2.x anymore. If any security issues surface, we will provide hot fixes of course (at least until the end of the year).
So, please consider upgrading to Joomla! 3.x and JoomGallery 3.x as soon as possible.

After some time here is finally a new release of JoomGallery. Small and more important bugs have been fix, a summery of the changes can be found in the changelog.xml.
Thanks to everybody who helped finding these bugs and to those who contributed code on GitHub.
You can update your gallery with the Autoupdate function in the JoomGllery backend. Alternatively you can also load the Zip from the download section and install it via the extension manager of Joomla!.
