Jomres 9.11.0 has been released. This version includes tools that help you to ensure that your sites are GDPR compliant.

There are significant changes to how guest and manager details are stored, all details are now securely encrypted when "at rest" in the database. I have tested Jomres as thoroughly as I can however as always I advise you to first make a backup of your site before you run any updates, and ideally test the update on a staging/development server before applying the same changes to your live server.

If  you've been following my blog posts these last few weeks you will see that I have described in detail a variety of changes that have been made to Jomres to make it compatible with the GDPR. These changes include opt-in/opt-out records, guest and manager data encryption and lots of other features.

It will not go into detail here, you can see a more complete description of the changes on the GDPR page in the manual.

Joomla and WordPress are in the process of producing hooks for extensions and I will release companion plugins for Jomres as and when they are available, meaning that Jomres will be able to be triggered by the host CMS's functionality as well it's own built-in functionality.

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.
