Firstly , We'd like to apologize for the long delay in this release. We have some major modifications coming in the next version 2.9 like Group Chat, File transfer etc which were under development which are not very stable yet. So we decided to make a release with features that were stable & then push the exciting ones as a Beta ( to be released later this week) .
J!Bolo 2.8 comes with a hoard of bug fixes & great new features like Smiley Popup, Custom Status, an Improved History interface & 2 cool new design thanks to PSD contributions by one of our cool J!Bolo users.. Pedro Alves. If you are looking for any design stuff, we'd recommend him any time ! & once you look at the new design options the New Gradient Bar & Black 3D theme, i am sure you will too !
We recommend all users upgrade to the latest release ASAP. The release will be available in the My Subscriptions menu for active subscribers. Note that we are releasing JBolo 2.9 Beta in the labs later this week. That version should not be used in Production sites.
Please read on for the full change log.
