By the end of this month (August 2007) we will have removed our oldest components from sale. Support will continue for these components for another year, however only for existing customers.
The components about to be withdrawn are:
ComboMAX – A Commenting Component
ComboMAX was the worlds first ever Mambo component, released for £2 even before Mambo 4.5 stable was released. ComboMAX lead the way in many ways, bringing you a commenting solution to Mambo for the first time. ComboMAX has since been superceeded by the whole Web 2.0 era and now better, more web 2.0, comment components are leading the way. We have no plans to release another commenting component at this time.
mosIPN – Digital File Delivery After PayPal Payment
As sales of ComboMAX increased, we made a problem for ourselves. Customers who purchased at 4am wanted their delivery at 4am! When we were asleep! So we developed mosIPN to handle our own fulfillment process. In fact we still use a highly modified version of mosIPN for all our fulfillments right up to this day. We have no plans to release a new component to replace this one.
mosLock – Instant Account Creation after PayPal Payment
mosLock was our smallest ever component – it simply looked for paypal IPN and then created a Joomla User. Nothing fancy.
Why retire these components?
Two words – BIG PLANS! We have some enormous plans for the future – some we will hint at here – some we are holding close to our chest Also witout the support burden of these older components we can spend more time supporting fewer components better.
We are here to stay – although we may move offices to another island – we are still supporting Joomla and still working very hard on new exciting projects for you to enjoy.
1. Will I still be able to download my purchase of mosIPN?
Yes – for at least the next 12 months
2. Will you continue to update, fix, repair, re-release, support these components?
No, these components are now extinct and will not be resurrected.
We are aware that mosLock doesn’t function correctly under certain circumstances. It fails to send user registration information.
This is due to the increased security features introduced in recent Joomla versions which has caused our code to malfunction under certain circumstances. We are working hard on finding a fix and will release a new version soon and ask all existing customers to check back often for updates.
We are also at this time in the final stages of releasing a new version of Phil-a-form, mosIPN and mosKB as well !
We are working today on several updates to our components that resolve issues caused by the upgrade to Joomla 1.0.11 and specifically turning off of register_globals and rg_emulation in Joomla.
We will release these new versions as soon as they are tested by our team.
We are working on Tags, Phil-a-form and mosIPN.
