Finally it is here: after a loooong wait (thanks for the patience!), we just released SimpleCalendar version 3.1.0 final for everyone to enjoy. It's not a huge change from 3.0.x, mainly bugfixes and stability improvements. We hope you like it.
As usual, you can download it from our Download section and install it over your existing SimpleCalendar installation. It is tested with the latest Joomla build, as well as PHP versions 5.5 and 7.0.
If you need assistance or would like to report a problem, please head over to the support forum where your questions will be answered in a hopefully timely fashion. Please note that we will be closed from June 18th to July 9th for summer holidays, although the forum will be checked from time to time.
We sure hope you will appreciate the efforts we put into SimpleCalendar 3.1.0 and if you do, please consider buying a Validation key for your domain, or consider other support options - we thank you very much in advance.
Our hope to release a new version of SimpleCalendar is approaching fast as we released the third public BETA version of the next iteration of everyone's favourite simple event management component. Feedback from early adopters are welcome in the Forum, where you'll find the BETA version ready to download and install (on non-productive sites for now, but looks like we're close to production-level quality).
We are aiming for a mid to late june release, so your help in squashing the last issues is very much appreciated. As usual, our translation teams can use our Transifex page to update the translations, which will eventually make it in the final product.
And here the compulsory reminder: SimpleCalendar is "free" as in "speech" and "beer" (literally), but we will appreciate your help in development by registering a validation key for your site / domain, or another form of support of your choice (including pizza. And beer, of course). Many many thanks in advance.
One of my customers of my full-time job needed a specific module that would allow him to track the number of submissions for an important petition he started in Switzerland. His site is using the excellent ChronoForms tool, but a quick glance at Google didn't show up anything specific to the task, so I decided to help him out by writing a custom module that counts the records submitted so far, along with a target value they are trying to reach. I went a little bit further than that and enabled, along with the "simple" counter view, also a Progess Bar view that visualizes the progress made by his petition with respect to the goal they set.
PS: Work on SimpleCalendar 3.1 is going forward and I'm currently testing Joomla 3.5 compatibility in different PHP versions. Will take some more time, time that I hadn't anticipated, but I'm confident we're not far off.
