Due to popular demand, we will start publishing the known issues for JCal Pro® 2 in the Joomla 1.5 FAQs. As we find, verify and fix bugs, the page will be updated for quick reference.

Thanks again to the community, forum moderators and programers who continue to make JCal Pro® the best calendar for Joomla.

As the development of JCal Pro® 2.x continues, we have been updating the content organization on this site accordingly. Most important for JCal Pro® 2.x is the creation of a dedicated documentation area for this new verison. 

As some regular readers might know, I recently missed my opportunity in December to talk at the Denver CMS Expo due to some fractured ribs which kept me from flying to the event. Well, the ribs are healing nicely and I've now got my sights set on Las Vegas, Nevada, the site of the next Joomla! Day in the United States (April 3rd and 4th, 2009).

Not only will this be my first trip to Vegas, but while I am there I will be teaching Joomla! for the first time. In addition, JDay Vegas 2009 will feature some very big names in the Joomlasphere (besides myself Wink) including Steven Burge (JED editorial team), Toni Marie (JED editorial team), Wilco Jansen (Open Source Matters board), Anthony Ferrara (Joomla core team) and Andrew Eddie (Joomla core team.

If that wasn't enough to get you fired up, just remmeber. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas (except for all the awesome Joomla training that is. You should really remmeber that stuff). Tongue out

For all the information and registration for both the training sessions and Joomla Day Las Vegas, head on over to lasvegas.joomladayusa.org.

 The January 2009 (and inaugural) Milwaukee Joomla User Group Meetup will be held on January 29 at the Milwaukee County Research Park. The 90 minute meeting will start at 11:45 AM and a catered lunch will be provided. Please RSVP if you plan to attend.

As Joomla 1.5 continues to add new features and bug fixes to the codebase, it gets closer and closer to becoming a true, enterprise-class content management system. However, there are still some features absent from the core functionality which limit the widespread adoption of Joomla in large-scale, mission-critical environments. Perhaps the most obvious of these ‘killer features' are customizable access controls (i.e. advanced user/usergroup permissioning), nested content categories, customizable user registration and revision control. The latter is the management of multiple revisions or ‘versions' of the same unit of information. In colaborative environments, revision control is a mustr but even for the lone editor or content provider, revision control provides a very convenient content back-up solution for those times when you accidentally delete a few hours of writing.
