Welcome Joomla!

Friday, 02 September 2005

The XHTMLSuite team welcomes "Joomla!"

Since yesterday evening one of the worlds most popular and fastest growing Open Source projects has a new name.

The development team of the successful CMS, up to now known as Mambo, recently ended cooperation with Miro - original developer and copyright holder of Mambo - due to Miro's controversal actions upon formation of a so called Mambo Foundation and announced to continue independent development of the Content Management System under a new name.

The name Joomla! (a phonetic spelling of a Swahili word meaning "all together/as a whole") yesterday officially was disclosed by the development team.

Compatibility of our Software to Joomla! and Mambo

Since Joomla! 1.0.0 will be based 100% upon Mambo, it is assumable that current releases of our software will work trouble-free with Joomla!. Thanks to the early publishing of a roadmap regarding the further development of Joomla! we'll further on will be able to release software compatible to Joomla! promptly.

UnfortunatelyXHTMLSuite does not support Miro's recently released Mambo version 4.5.3b. As further development of Mambo for us neither is transparent nor foreseeable we cannot guarantee future compatibility, although we'll make an effort to provide XHTMLSuite also for future versions of the CMS of your choice.

Please note: XHTMLSuite is only compatible with Mambo up to version!

Team XHTMLSuite releases XHTMLSuite v1.5

Wednesday, 17 August 2005

Buy XHTMLSuite v1.5 now!XHTMLSuite v1.5 now is available. The latest version comes with plenty of new and improved functions and also fixes known bugs from previous versions.

With the newest release the output of valid XHTML was highly improved. Furthermore a completely new developed function for source code formatting has been implemented, which formats the generated HTML code with indents and linebreaks. This makes it easy for users to find their way through the source code if necessary.

Improved support for 3rd party components

If you have installed Community Builder, the editor configuration of "Authors" group automatically will be assigned to your registered members.

Mambelfish now completely is supported when generating each editor (coming up: a patch for Mambelfish with a highly improved interface, providing buttons for comfortable inserting and deleting of Mambelfish contents).

New functions now assist you even better when creating content

ImageManager interface completely was reworked and now makes it easy to operate the ImageManager with tab key. Also a new function was implemented, alowing you to format images with CSS attribute float.

Thanks to the new and now dynamic CSS plugin it isn't necessary anymore to add your CSS classes manually - XHTMLSuite now does that for you!

Creation of tables with this release even more works like in popular Windows/Macintosh HTML editors (table cells are filled with non-breaking spaces [ ]), furthermore it now is possible to assign proportional size to table cells directly upon creation of tables.

XHTMLSuitewill encode more than 90 special characters into their corresponding HTML entities and thus provides even better XHTML output.

Improved portability through relative paths

When inserting images or internal hyperlinks XHTMLSuite generates relative paths. This makes it easy for you to export or move your content if necessary.

If you already are the owner of a XHTMLSuite license, the update and install instructions are available to you for free. After logging in to your account, you'll find a direct link to the update in the customer menu.

For an almost complete list of changes please see the following changelog:
