iContact have recently released the second version of their API, and along with it, we upgraded our popular email component for Joomla we call JContact.
iContact were running a contest for API applications, and we are excited to announce that we grabbed second place!
Email marketing service iContact announced the winners of their API Challenge, a contest for partners and customers of iContact that asked them to build an integration between third party applications and iContact.
2nd place was given to Joomlashack, a team of designers, developers and technicians in the Joomla community, which came up with JContact. They received $2,000 cash. Barrie North, a user and designer of JContact explained: “We have been long-time fans of iContact. We built a component called JContact that leverages the new iContact API to integrate Joomla registration with iContact, and uses best industry opt-in practices to do so. We also gave it away for free!”
One of the more exciting new releases for Joomla 1.5 recently has been K2 from Joomlaworks.
K2 is a content construction component, which lets you create custom content types (items) for your Joomla! website. With K2, build all sorts of different types of page: news, blogs, product catalogs, work portfolio, knowledge base, download/document manager, directory listing, event listing etc.
I thought I wold take k2 for a spin in a "raw" video review. I installed K2 and put it through its paces without ever having used it before. Raw look, no reading documentation, just install it and play!
Just a month after the release of Joomla 1.5 stable, some of our very favorite extensions are rolling out ready for Joomla 1.5!
First there was WysiwygPro, the premiere editor component. And today, we announce the release of JomComment and MyBlog, ready for Joomla 1.5.
What do these two awesome extensions do?
