“Joomla! proudly presents its most important coding adrenaline surge to the development and designer community. With today’s release of Joomla! 1.5 Beta-2, we’re shifting gears into turbo mode; an entirely re-factored core, internationalisation, FTP layering, next-generation API and framework that’s so flexible and powerful and, of course, a designer’s dream for unparalleled templating flexibility.”
So at last Joomla 1.5 Beta 2 is released.

Ok, we admit it, the current Tags component is becoming a right pain, so we are scrapping it!
Before you die of shock we want to announce that (sooner than planned!) we will be releasing a new version of the Tags Component on Friday 13th April 2007!
This will be our first totally rewritten component to be released with our new bfFramework (A framework that allows us to rapidly build Joomla Extensions) and sports a whole new admin interface powered 100% by xAJAX and jQuery.
Whats more, we are aiming that the same component (already works, but will be announced proper in a later public version) will work in BOTH Joomla 1.0.12 AND Joomla 1.5 (And we have even tested it in Drupal!!!).
In an exception to our current policy on new components – all previous Tags Component Customers can get a FREE copy of the next Tags component without extra charge. This is not a change in our policy, but rather it is easier for us to do this with tags, we also want to see how the new bfFramework performs – so feedback will be welcome.
We are drawing a line under our old style components, and in bringing the launch of the new tags component forward we are excited to see your reaction…
… more news on this as soon as I can get it to you …
Many times I am asked what one tool do I use in developing PHP Applications that I cannot do without. Up until recently I would answer and say the Zend studio is by indespensible application.
However Zend now has a rival for my top spot! Bring on FIREBUG!
Firebug is a Firefox Extension for Web developers – I cannot even start to list the features, but the best feature must be the spying on AJAX calls and their responses! We cannot live without this, how did we ever develop applications without it!?
I have been using Firebug for a while now, but today I installed the Beta version – and was completely blown away! This is not a firefox extension for web users, but for we developers – I simply cannot say enough good things about it!

Further to my recent announcement of the upcoming release of “Mailing List Manager for Joomla 1.5″ I am now writing this post to invite existing msoListMessenger customers, who often send emails with mosListMessenger and are more advanced in Joomla and web development to join our closed beta team to test our new component and provide feedback.
We are only looking for a few ACTIVE people to test drive our software on Joomla 1.5 SVN and provide feedback within a few days – If you would like more details please email Phil direct at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please, no time wasters, we are eager to release this exciting component but we want to ensure it is well tested before we do. This offer only applies to EXISTING mosListMessenger License holders.
