The release of the latest version of JomSocial,V.1.8 codenamed "Wazi" (Swahili for clear, openness and clarity), opens up a whole new vista of possibilities for the average JomSocial based Social Network. I bet you have already have heard about what features have been packed into this new release.There's the amazing new Social Events Management system, then a bettered activity stream & much enhanced media handling, Ability to edit walls to name a few features. What we shall also be looking at is how this affects you & how it affects our extensions.
From my perspective , the announcement of JomSocial going GPL with this release holds much more weight than all its new features combined. On one front it proves that quality commercially supported extensions can be built & sustained while being licensed under GPL. Secondly, the best part of this is that you can now install JomSocial on any number of sites, though you may only request support for one domain. So now you can get all those cash strapped projects up & running !
