Hi everybody here!

Hi everybody here!
It's nice day today, don't you think? And the world is such a wonderful place to walk around through.

I, MarHaj, Jumi grandfa, has decided to visit another places. I am leaving Jumi project these days. My current business, leadership coaching and training, needs more of my attention.

It was good time with Jumi since 2006 when Jumi was born.

Since those time Jumi obtained many many awards in JED. I will not list them here, it coudl be boring for you.

Jumi was downloaded form Jumi site 212.582 times, 136.145 of which makes downloads for Joomla! 1.5.

We developers, Ed and me, supported with fun and joy Jumi related issues in this forum - you will find more of 2.000 posts there.
And I think our users enjoyed it very well too.
Special thanks to he who contributes to Jumi code:
* Max Vlasov, who invented, proposed and coded Jumi plugin nesting possibility. Great idea, simple to implement!
* KatGirl, Joomla! forum member, who notifies me about a $ bug in a plugin. It occurred to be Joomla bug).
* Ben-work, Joomla! forum member, who solved $ bug.
* Rudolf Polzer from alientrap.org who notified me about the benefits of implementing absolute pathnames into Jumi.
* Fritz Elfert at fritz-elfer.de who gave me a lot of thoughts material. I have used some of his ideas in Jumi already, others are still on our wish-list.

And the biggest thank to all of you, loyal Jumi users! Without you Jumi would be nothing...

Jumi project will be lead by Ed. Everybody, I think, knows him. He is the inventor and developer of
Jumi component. Ed is a developer of other Joomla! extension too. I do not know how he does that he does it well be he does. So I am not afraid about Jumi. It is in the best hands I can imagine. Definitely. I am 100% sure.

I am sure too that Ed will welcome with smile from ear to ear any developer or supporter he could lend him a hand. Is there anybody here? Just decide if it stands for some time to have a fun and enjoy yourself with Jumi.

Thanks for your attention. And bear in mind, that
... the world is such a wonderful place to walk around through!



Sincerely Yours MarHaj
P.S.: you will find all Jumi materials and files at Ed's pages http://edo.webmaster.am/jumi from know. Update your links, please.

Wow!

From time to time I am surprised (see right) what code wizards can do with Jumi.

The last but not the least example is toernooi.net site.

Look through it via the top menu. Everything (well except the font enlarger/minimizer) non standard in the site has been developed by Djemmers (geek code name) and delivered into it via Jumi. A really great bunch of things!

Examples? Here you have got it:
  • Logo's in header with link to db,
  • module "in de databank",
  • module "Nieuwste toernooien",
  • module "Niewste kampen",
  • module "login/register" in the header,
  • page Events,
  • page Zoek events,
  • page Toevoegen,
  • page Geschiedenis.
As I said I did not understand how he had accomplished all these things but the results made to cry out

WOW!

PreEaster Jumi Surprise - 2.1 is coming

New Jumi 2.1 is going to be released on April 7th.
It will be available for downloads from standard place.

Jumi 2.1 brings
  1. more security (available only from Joomla! 1.5.8),
  2. more flexibility,
  3. more possibilities.
1. Security
Jooma! 1.5.8 have introduced so called black/white list.
Jumi 2.1 uses this feature and Jumi plugin will not be shown if article author is on the blacklist or is not on whitelist.

2. Flexibility
Jumi plugin has got new syntax:
(jumi source_code}written_code{/jumi}
This syntax enables (with accompanying new editor-xtd plugin Jumicoder) to write codes directly into Joomla!. So now you have got three possibilities how to include the code via Jumi plugin: from a Jumi component database table, from a file or directly.

3. Possibilities
  • In Joomla! pdf representation of the articles Jumi code is rendered now. From RSS feeds it is totally sripped out (not visible).
  • Jumi plugin code can also be included into section and category descriptions now.
  • Jumi module and plugin have got so called "debug mode". If debug mode is to Off then No Jumi internal error messages will be shown in the frontend. You will see nothing instead (in place of custom code). Good for your visitors!
There are another minor changes and improvements there coming mainly from your, Jumi users, wishes.

We are not sure how Joomla! community will welcome all these - as we think positive - changes. So we decided to release Jumi 2.1 as a beta from the very beginning. But be sure we have tested it for several month and we are almost sure you will not encounter any security problem or a big bug there. Should you encounter any will you be so kind and report it to us? For example in Jumi thread at Joomla! forum. Thank you in an advance.

And, by the way, happy EASTER to all of you!!!

How to become successful developer in less then 5 minutes

Miracle? Not really. In this article I will show you how to.

Just follow these five steps:
1) Find at Joomla! Extension Directory some succesfull extension. For example Jumi module 1.2.0, Jumi plugin 1.2.1 (or JBookmarks or Google map plugin or something like this).
2) Download the extension.
3) In the downloaded files substitute all information about the author and extension name and its version by yours.own ones. No need to change anything else. For example change Jumi to JRool (or JBookmarks to JShare or Google map to JMap). Choosing the eye catching name is the most difficult task in this kind of the "development".
4) Publish the extension in JED and your pages.
5) Be proud to your hard work.

You are saying it is unethical? That it is code robbery?
Bah! Who cares?

Joomify.com is successful developer of JRool, JShare and JMap.
I bet it took them less them 5 minutes to achieve this highly wanted peak.

The same happened with GTranslate: Pradhan Manish "developed" Automatic Google Translator V2, which is actually modified GTranslate, I asked JED Team to unpublish it, but... (added by edo888)

We are working on your dreams!

We, developers of Jumi custom code extensions for Joomla, wish you, Jumi users, the very best in the coming year.

We will do our best for your Jumi dreams come true.

Make us acquainted with them in Jumi support forum or by e-mail.

Let us allow to submit you the 2008 "balance" sheet.

The 2008 year was in the name of Joomla! 1.5 platform expansion definitely. Although we publish the first Jumi extension for Joomla! 1.5 in October 2007 it was only at the end of 2008 when downloads of Jumi extensions for Joomla! 1.5 overtook those for Joomla! 1.0, those that were introduced in 2006. At these days the situation of total Jumi downloads is as follows: 70.000:70.000 (for J!1.5 and J!1.0).

The situation in Joomla! community has change substantially too: the number of community members has roughly doubled and the number of extensions has tripled in 2008. In 2006 there were just two or three custom code extensions in JED now you can find almost fifty of them there. And these are really very good extensions. All of these changes have made us to continue with increasing effort to keep up with the best ones.

During 2008 we introduced 6 upgrades of various Jumi extensions.

The current status of Jumi extensions is as follows:
for Joomla! 1.0 there is a module and a plugin, for Joomla! 1.5 there is a module, a plugin, a component.

The developers team doubles in 2008 too. On 2008/08/08 Edvard Ananyan and Martin Hájek joined their custom code extensions for Joomla! and decided to market them under common Jumi name. By the way: Jumi was born on 2006/08/08 and joining occurred on 2008/08/08. Nice coincidence, isn't it? Edvard is keeping Jumi Tips and Tricks at his site while I am maintaining Downloads and Guides. The user support is provided by both of us.

Jumi is alive product. It breaths with users needs and ideas. We welcome them and trying to implement them into Jumi. There were some 800+ posts in Joomla! support thread and more 100 direct mail requirements from Jumi users. From all of these posts it is obvious that Jumi is used for a huge range of problems solving and tasks. Not all problems were solved and not all users, I estimate some seven, were not able to make Jumi run. But the majority is, as we are persuaded, quite satisfied: there are 119 votes and 61 reviews in JED, mostly positive ones and Jumi belongs to the most favoured Joomla! extensions for a very long time.

That's all.

It remains only to wish you the very best in the coming 2009 year.
And let all your (Jumi) dreams come true!
