This is a significant release as it includes some sexy new stuff like Stripe being built into the free Core (Woot!) and some plugins are now available to download for free through the Jomres plugin manager.

So, let's get started....

Stripe Standard payment gateway added to Core, free, gratis.

Jomres has had a Stripe plugin for several years, it was designed to allow sharing of funds between property managers and site owners. As a result it is more complex to setup than a normal payment gateway plugin. Over the summer I worked on a new Stripe plugin called Stripe Standard, which is purely for property managers, there's no fee-sharing/platform fees handling in it, and I decided to do something that I've wanted to do for ages now and include the payment gateway in the Core. The old platform plugin still exists but I'll be renaming it to Stripe Platform sometime soon.

Plugin Manager now supports free plugins

Another something I've wanted to do for a while is offer free plugins through the Jomres plugin manager. I want the REST API to gain more traction, it's comprehensive, powerful and secure so it makes sense to offer these plugins so that everybody can use them. Now you don't need a license to install the plugin manager, and some plugins are already available. I'm considering adding the Jomres Messaging System to that list.

API Key management page also has received some love, you can view existing tokens if they exist, expire them and there's cool "copy keys to clipboard" buttons.

Jomres Messaging System

There have been a variety of tweaks added to the Core to support the new Jomres Messaging System. This is a significant new Instant Messaging feature which I think will really set Jomres apart from the competition. I will probably add this plugin to the list of free plugins available.

Usability improvements

I've been working a lot recently on finding where users are hitting roadblocks when using Jomres. There're a host of changes which hopefully remove these roadblocks and make Jomres easier to use.

Tons more changes. Github says 114k lines added, 77k lines removed. I don't know how true that is but I do know that it's been a heck of a lot of work recently.

I hope you enjoy the changes.


Jomres releases

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.
