As a quick Christmas Present, I have just released ListMessenger for Joomla! v2.2.4
This release specifically fixes some smaller issues we had in the first release, as well as reducing the distribution zip file size (so that it can be easily installed on restrictive hosts) as well as enabling WYSIWYG Editors. (For the editors, we have ripped out the LM Implementation of this and now lever on the Joomla way of doing things, meaning all your favourite Joomla editors can now be used – just select them in Joomla Global Configuration.
In order to upgrade please read this article: http://www.joomla-mailing-list.com/update

A lot of people have been asking what our plans are for mosListMessenger (mosLM) now that Joomla 1.5 has been released.
At the moment, the downloadable version of mosLM is not compatible with Joomla 1.5 – at all – not even with the so-called legacy plugin enabled.
A few months ago we ported mosLM to Joomal 1.5SVN as it was then – we had it working and even announced our progress in this blog. However late changes to the Joomla 1.5 code base rendered the component unworking before Joomla 1.5 was released.
We are planning to re-release mosLM under the name Joomla Mailing List Manager as soon as we can – however other codeing commitments (Like Joomla Tags/KB/Forms) have taken priority.
Please don’t ask us when to expect a release – we will release it when its done and tested – until then enjoy life!
What a fantastic day! When we heard the Simpsons were coming to London we dropped everything to drive down and spend the day with them. No I dont mean the yellow skinned, eat-my-shorts type Simpsons! I mean Matt Simpson (And his beautiful wife Karla Simpson), Matt is the original developer of ListMessenger, the PHP application that mosListMessenger and Mailing List Manager (Coming soon) is based on and licensed by.
After arriving at gatwick airport 30mins before their flight arrived (without them knowing I was meeting them!) I was greeted by another 1 hour wait as they sat on in the baggage reclaim waiting for their bags – so at 1am we finally met, all of us exhausted from a days travel – off to the hotel…
In the morning we all met up in London’s Victoria station – My wife and Karla, Matt and I and our 3 week old baby !
We spent the day together touring London’s tourist attractions, The Palace, Westminster, London Eye, SoHo, Oxford Street – and the place we all spent money in – the Apple Mac Store!!! (Long story, short version: 240v->110v converters don’t like hairdryers do they Karla?!).
It was finally great to meet such wonderful people have a chance to specd some quality time chilling out (we hardly spoke about work – much to the delight of the wifes!) but we did manage to agree a future for the continued development of mosListMessenger for Joomla 1.0.12 and a new product forked from ListMessengers next version to be called Mailing List Manager for Joomla 1.5 (When 1.5 is released!)
Matt, Karla, Many thanks for such a wonderful day – safe journey home (You are in a plane above the Atlantic right now!) – Matt and I have worked together for many years now, having never spoken on the phone, or met – the internet is a great place!
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 email@example.com
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.
