Huge plugin update

This is the plugin update you didn't know you needed til now!

Over the last couple of weeks the Jomres plugin library has enjoyed a significant update. 124 plugins have had new language files added to match those available in Jomres core.

This adds approximately 4,400 new language files to the plugins, meaning that besides the news information, your entire Dashboard, and your Property manager's dashboards should now all be available to them in their native languages.

For a bit of fun I calculated that the updated languages in both Jomres Core and the plugins means that Jomres can now be used by (at least) 4.03 billion people. That's a hefty number of people you could be adding to your portals.

 There's one exception to this list, and that's the Search Widgets plugin. Unfortunately Google translate absolutely mangles the language strings, and given that the shortcode examples have to be absolutely right otherwise you can't use the examples, unfortunately the shortcode text in the Shortcodes page isn't translated yet. I'll do them at a later time as it requries a lot of attention to detail. Other than that, all plugins have been completely translated.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was released as a commercial project. Since then Jomres has become the world's oldest online booking plugin for any PHP CMS. It has been used in Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 2.5, 3 & 4 and WordPress 4, 5 & 6.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. Between 2010 and 2018 he was an integral part of the project and made many significant contributions.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and Vince have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous Valentina Template Override Package.
