Dropping Bootstrap 2 Support for all products in upcoming major releases!

Dropping Bootstrap 2 Support for all products in upcoming major releases!

Till now we have been maintaining both Bootstrap 2 & Bootstrap 3 layouts for all extensions. However this is taking a toll on the release cycle and changes have to be done in both the layouts.

Over time we have seen that very few customers are using Bootstrap 2 templates now so this decision seems logical to take. However we have always maintained that we will maintain Bootstrap2 support till the Joomla core maintains it and we wanted to be double sure before taking this decision.

So we reached out to various popular template clubs both over the internet and at conferences we attend, the latest being at JWC Vancouver to get their feedback. Template clubs typically have a much larger user base and typically know more of what the masses are using. The feedback there too was that the users using Bootstrap 2 are very less and they too are seem to be migrating to Bootstrap 3.  Post this, we decided that the time had come to stop supporting Bootstrap 2.

Shika 1.1 released with 20+ features !

Shika 1.1 released with 20+ features !

It's here! Shika 1.1 is out with 20+ spectacular new features that will take learning with Joomla to a whole new level. With Shika its always been our goal to give you a scalable learning management system that's not only simple to use but can also scale and adapt to various learning needs. In this release we take another step closer to that goal.  

When version 1.0 was released, we had decided that for the next few releases we will do less new features per release and release faster. However we ended up having to increase the features planned for the release as we had a lot of merge requests pending from our customization teams. Delaying these merges would have meant complicating things for future releases. So it was decided that 1.1 will end up being a much bigger release than originally planned. 

Shuffling for Questions and answers, Event as lesson, Automatic random quiz generation, Link as lesson, Assignments and Goals are just some of the features that come to you in this release !  The net total if you include all the minor features goes upto 24 or so new features and a lot of bug fixes and improvements.

Please note that this release is a 'Major Release' and thus needs a migration. The Migration is pretty painless but you need to run it in both Shika as well as jLike post installation. Once you install the release, make sure you click the 'Fix' buttons in the left corner on the Shika and jLike component pages. Also make sure you read the release notes carefully before you upgrade !!
