Hi to all,
SC has got a "boost" in development lately that makes us confident we can pull it through a series of upgrades that will bring it (almost) level with high-quality (albeit paid) event management components (EMCs).
Just remember: the goal of this project was NEVER to emulate a good (albeit paid) EMC, but to provide the community with a low-maintenance, high-impact product that is both easy to setup and use. We think we achieved that.

So where does the journey go from here?
  • First off, we'll stabilize the 3.1.x branch, by correcting bugs and simplifying the user interface: starting with 3.1.2 there's a better backend event editor form, which will eventually also be ported to the frontend; starting with 3.1.4 we will move most layout-bound switches now found in "Settings" to the more suitable position inside the menu settings, thus allowing for more customization between different pages.
  • Next up will be 3.2.x, with some highly requested features, such as recurring events (read it again: "re-curr-ing-e-ven-ts"!), probably initially only in a "lazy" fashion, but eventually they will be tied together). Other areas of improvement will be internationalization and better TimeZone support.
Did we miss a key feature? Have your say over at our Shoutbox (one topic at the time, if possible), it might be included in one of the upcoming releases - no guarantees!
Once again a big "thank you" to all of you that made SimpleCalendar possible, especially those who showed their appreciation by taking the time to write a review in our Joomla Extension page, or by other means.
Best regards
Fabrizio
