More About JCal Pro 5

This is the first stable release of JCal Pro for Joomla 4, so please proceed carefully as with the first release of any software. There will be bugs found as we open this to general availability.

In order to support Joomla 4, we had to make some very significant changes to the codebase. These changes run to tens of thousands of lines of code:

  • 1,062 changed files
  • 91,729 new lines of code
  • 62,014 deleted lines of code

In this first release, there are some other things to note:

  • Version 5.0 is for Joomla 4 only.
  • The Joomla 4 version is missing two features compared to the Joomla 3 version. Frontend event management and custom themes are both missing and may be added in a future release.
