hot_newsI recently received a bunch of request by email about the upcoming version of jDownloads 2.0, the current development status and what is planned for the lastest Joomla version 3.0.

Here are a few informations about the current situation:
  • At this time, there are separate version for Joomla 1.5.x and Joomla 2.5.x. Unfortunately the core team has changed a great number of things in the 3.0 release. Therefore it is impossible to use the same installation files for Joomla 2.5 and 3.0 at the same time, because of that there must be an own version for Joomla 3.0. The edition for joomla 3.0 is in progress. But it is based on the version 1.9 and does not contain any changes of the jD 2.0.
  • I currently work on the complete rewritten jD 2.0 (with MVC structure) every day, but cannot do this the whole time. It is a lot of work, to create the source code from the ground up. But I have to accomplish this, to ensure, jDownloads is even full compatible to the joomla core functions and his techniques in the future.
  • To create the backend functionality is the most work for a Joomla component. This task is about 80 percent finished and I hope, this operation will be completed in the next weeks.
  • Afterwards the mission is, to rewrite the frontend and I think it needs about 6 weeks to be done. The frontend output shall be still more flexible than in the current version.
Update 2013-01-21:
I know that many users wait on the new version. But all good things needs time
("Soon ripe, soon rotten"). I do what i can, but many new features must be added. So i will not call again a circa publishing date. I can only say: It is ready when it is ready.

The new comes as version 2.5 (joomla 2.5) and 3.1 (Joomla 3.1) in the next weeks (october) as beta. Playlists are here not planned currently. What mean you exactly with cdn feature?

Please use next time the support forum for your questions.
