Keeping you up-to-date (Jim Beam not included)

If it's not one thing this year, it's another.

It's summertime, so here's a quick update from yours truly.

Brexit, as you're no doubt aware, is here and Sterling is plummeting. This is great news for our European customers, because Jomres is now much cheaper for them.
Previously, a Starter license would have cost somewhere in the region of 195 Euros. Today, as the Pound continues to fall, it's roughly 175 Euros.
As a result, we're considering changing the currency we sell Jomres in to Euros. We haven't decided for definite, as we need to determine which regulatory hoops we have to jump through, however if the pound continues to fall we will have no choice but to change to a currency that offers us some stability.
As is our tradition, we're also offering our annual Vince's birthday discount code for Jomres, this year the discount code is BREXITSUX, and it gives you a 10% discount on any Jomres license.
So, if you're smart you'll grab that Jomres license you'd been considering getting while it's cheap.

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.
