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.
SimpleCalendar 3.1.0 has been in the works for some time now, but - as most of you are aware - it is not an easy job to maintain a balance between work, family, hobbies and sport, so it got behind schedule fairly often. In the last months we tried to work on it more, but still not at an acceptable rate. It will be this way for the upcoming months as well, but we set our goal on working at least periodically in order to bring it up to the next level.
Today we release the Module and the Countdown module for 3.1.0. Both are fully compatible with your current version of SimpleCalendar (3.0.10 or 3.0.11).
SimpleCalendar 3.1.0 will be released in the upcoming weeks, while we work on full compatibility with the latest Joomla version as well as some rather heavy bugsfixing. Thanks for your loyalty and keep visiting this page or the support forum for the latest information about the release.
