Invitex 2.0 comes with a host of new features & loads of bug fixes. The biggest of the features are a new Invite Method called Social Networks which uses native APIs to import contacts & send invites, which is extendible via Plugins. In this series, the first plugin we have is for LinkedIn ( Facebook shall be added real soon !) . Also added is support for Social Network plugins from Open Inviter.
Besides this, we have support for JomSocial & Alpha User Points, a brand new email template, Invitation expiry, a plugin event to allow integration with Affiliate programs ( We have worked with Dioscouri on this one for their Amigos Affiliate system) , ability to select allowed Invite methods, a revamped admin with easier configuration & best of all ability to send emails via a system plugin for those who dont want to go into the trouble of setting a cron job. Phew ! Thats quite a list.. But thats not all.. It comes with a ton of bug fixes & UI improvements. And last but not by any means, the least... is native support for Joomla 1.6 ! Yay ! This is our first 1.6 release :) Please read on for the full change log. Subscribers can download the release from My Subscriptions. The documentation has been updated but the screens in the same shall be updated shortly. Have fun with the mega release !
