We are proud to announce that the first stable version of JCal Pro® for Joomla 1.5 is now available. With almost 200 resolved bugs on the tracker, JCal Pro® 1.5.13 Stable (Build 414) is a milestone for the development team, testers and community at large.

We have also begun work on JCal Pro® 2.0. The first new features will include an improved database structure which will make recurring events much more flexible. Multi-calendar support and improved menu selections are also planned for the initial release which has been tentatively scheduled for Dec. 31, 2008.

 Just a quick note to inform you all that Release Candidate 2 of JCal Pro® for Joomla 1.5 is now available in the downloads area.

This release includes a number of important bug fixes including recurrence dates showing one day early on event details view, toggling time display on the various calendar views and annual recurrences showing only for first occurrence. The complete changelog is available on the forum.

JCal Pro® MVC for Joomla 1.5 took a big step forward in the last few days as we released version 1.5.9 (build 383 and then build 384).

Together, these back-to-back releases contain fixes for what appear to be the last major bugs in the new Joomla 1.5-native codebase. These bugs deal with time zone managment for event display on the calendar as well as event submission/edition/deletion permissions on non-english sites as well as english-only sites running on PHP4.

While these issues are not security related, we recommend that all users upgrade to the most recent build. We are hoping to squash any  remaining bugs in the next few weeks so the codebase can be stabilized.

It is my duty to announce that JCal Pro® v1.6.x has been officially deprecated. This Joomla! 1.0/1.5 hybrid was simply too unweildly and overly complicated, especially as we poured more-and-more resources into JCal Pro® 1.5.x MVC. However, we are committed to re-engineering many of the features in JCal Pro® 1.6 into JCal Pro® 1.5.x MVC for Joomla! 1.5.x. Our first priority will be to improve recurring event options and add recurring event exceptions.

Back when JCal Pro® was born from the ashes of its predecessor, we built an infrastructure to support the installation and usage of themes. However, we soon found out that JCal Pro® themes were unnecessarily complicated with poor separation of style and content. Today we solve many of these problems with the official launch the JCal Pro® Theme Club (JPTC), the first theme club dedicated to a Joomla! extension.

Our initial offering includes 4 themes for Joomla 1.5.x designed by the renowned Joomla! template designed Casey Lee; Fire, Leaf, Ocean and Tree. You can view these themes on the live demo and immediately download these original Casey Lees.
