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

Jomres 9.8.25 has been released

I consider this something of a milestone as it's the version where the REST API and Webhooks functionality are both fully integrated into the Core where appropriate.


In case you're unfamiliar with the concept, in short :

REST API receives stuff.
Webhooks sends stuff.

So, we now have a version that fully supports plugins that can send and receive data to remote services securely using modern standards.

To help those users who'd like to test this functionality, I've written a case study/tutorial here that will help you to understand how the two features work together. Once you've worked through it, I'm sure you'll join me in being excited by the future implications of this new functionality.

It's been a long 8 months, putting this feature together but now it's here we're ready to start moving forward on the new generation of functionality for the system. Keep an eye out for new features coming later this year as we build integrations for other services.

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.
