Blōwan - to flourish, prosper

Blōwan Quickstart & Jomres 10.7 released

This is a parallel release of both the newest Quickstart, and Jomres 10.7.0

I'm not going to go into any great detail about Jomres 10.7.0. Most of the changes have already been discussed in the Nearing Completion and Testing blog posts.

The changes are some of the biggest changes to Jomres functionality in some years and extend it's power quite considerably. If you're looking for a system that gives you unrivalled flexibility when creating portals for booking things online, I encourage you to give those posts a look. The Site Designer's Guide has been updated too to reflect the changes.

The Quickstart is called Blōwan. It comes built on Helix Ultimate. There is a comprehensive Getting started with Blowan guide here.

Jomres releases, Quickstarts

vince picDeveloped and maintained by Vince Wooll, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

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.
