Welcome to Jumi! >> News >> Jumi pack 2.0 now for J!1.0 too!

Jumi custom code extensions pack for Joomla! 1.0 was released today - version 2.0.d. It follows the similar pack for Joomla! 1.5.

The word pack means not only the fact that all Jumi extensions for Joomla! 1.0 are distibuted as a pack now but also means - what is more important - they are also installed as the one entity. The pack installs itself as a component but in the fact a component, a module and a plugin are installed.

The individual extensions - whether a plugin or a module or a new Jumi component - tightly collaborate between each other and can share the custom code resources.

Because there are many great addition to the previous releases there the Jumi pack was given the release version number 2.0. We hope you will enjoy it!

What's new

The most apperent change is that Jumi custom code extensions for Joomla 1.0 contain component too. There are chnges in a module and plugin as well:

  • module and plugin insert custom codes from a component database table too,
  • module and plugin have another parameter - debug mode,
  • module inserts directly written code too,
  • plugin is able to process nested Jumi syntax.

Remarks on backward compatibility

Jumi plugin has got full backward compatibility with previous Jumi plugin versions.

Jumi module possesses full backward compatibility too except arguments values feature.

Until now the arguments were inputed in a module parameter field like this


and were retrieved in custom php script by $jumi[] array.

The module parameter field remains but has got grown and change it's meaning. Into the module field "Code written" you can write the whole codes (plain text, html, php, javascript) now and not only values as before.

So if you want to utilize your old php files containing arguments in the new Jumi module you can do that. Just write at the "Code written" field this (at the least):

$jumi = array (arg1, arg2, ..., argN);

What does the "d" in the release number mean?

Well. Joomla! team has announced that Joomla! 1.0 will not be further developed from the summer 2009. As a reaction Jumi team, Ed and me, have decided we will not be actively developing Jumi extensions for dead or, at the least, depreciated project. That means:

  • if a miracle does not occur we will not add new features into Jumi 2.0 for Joomla! 1.0,
  • we will continue with our Jumi for Joomla! 1.0 support via dedicated Jumi thread,
  • future releases of Jumi for Joomla! 1.0, if any, will be just maintenance ones.
