When Joomla! 1.5.0 stable was released, we received many requests for JCal to be natively compatible. Thus, we decided a few weeks ago to rip JCal apart and rebuild it using the MVC framework. We chose JCal Pro® 1.5.3 Stable as our codebase since this version is widely used with relatively few bugs.

We also decided to put JCal Client 1.6.x on the backburner while we completed this task. We expect a beta of JCal Pro® MVC (Joomla! 1.5 native) by the end of the month. Following a bug-fixing session, we will then resume development of JCal Client 1.6.x.

Thank-you for your patience and continued support.

Looks like presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich picked Joomla! for it's official campaign website and JCal Client / JCal Pro® for their events calendar .

We just wanted to say 'thanks Dennis', we appreciate the support and if you manage to win the upcoming election, we plan on taking all the credit . 

Cheers to Steve at Alledia.com for pointing this out. 



Anything Digital is proud to announce the first public beta of JCal Client for Joomla! and Mambo, the predecessor to the popular calendar and events extension JCal Pro®.

JCal Client has a long list of new features, most notable among them being advanced recurring event support (including recurring event exceptions), support for Joomla! 1.5 and compatibility with the Joomfish (multi-language) and Community Builder (advanced user management) extensions.

JCal Client is available with all active JCal Pro® subscriptions. Since we expect active development to produce a stable version, we are encouraging users with expired/daily subscriptions to purchase yearly subscriptions so that they can readily take advantage of software upgrades.

As an incentive, yearly JCal Client/JCal Pro® subscriptions will be reduced to $20 until further notice.

After months of struggling with this decision, we have decieded to try a pay-for-download model for JCal Pro®.

As many developers will attest, the donation model we have been using is simply not working. While a few generous folk have contributed (thanks to those BTW), there is essentialy no income from this project at the moment.

As a reminder to those not familiar with the GPL license of JCal Pro®, it guarantees "free as in freedom", not "free as in beer". To satisify the terms of the GPL, the JCal Pro® source code can now be found at http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/jcalpro/.

I hope all the current and forthcoming JCal Pro® users respect our decision, especially given the nominal fee of $5 USD we are charging.

Wikipedia has an informative summay of the GNU GPL license.

On March 29, 2007 the 1.5.x series of JCal Pro® surpassed the 10,000 downloads mark.

The team at anything Digital would like to thank the community for making JCal Pro® so successful.
