It has been a while since we last updated this blog with JomSocial development progress.
Some may recall our previous JomSocial 2.4 blog posts which introduced the groundwork for quite a number of exciting features in upcoming versions of JomSocial. Some may remember our long term mission of improving content discovery to celebrate user-generated content, making them easier to be found and act upon; which will directly liven up your social niche. Some may also remember several highly voted feature requests in Uservoice have been marked as Started/Under Progress.

With the imminent release of JomSocial 2.4 in the upcoming weeks, this step is taken as part of our continuous effort to improve our service to you, our beloved supporters and faithful followers of the JomSocial project, the best social networking platform for Joomla!
We are enamored with the reception of JomSocial 2.4 Alphas (we have 6 of them!) and the most recent Beta 1 release. With the help of our avid beta testers, we are able to weed out numerous bugs, put a shine on existing features, and improve usability issues discovered in each releases. Bit by bit, line by line, pixel by pixel, JomSocial 2.4 is shaping up very nicely. This is the very reason we have the highest number of alpha versions in JomSocial release history.
Grab our latest beta, grab it while it's hot. And test it out.
You will know why the upcoming JomSocial 2.4 will be far different from our previous ones. This one is from one of our beta users:
Steve Jobs has touched each of lives in one way or another. Be it your kids (Pixar anyone?). Be it your gadgets (Iphone, Ipad, Ipod). Steve Jobs has revolutionized the way we use computers. And yes even in JomSocial.
He’s a visionary that has a notion that manifest his ideas into the psychical world. Never backs down and always moving a step forward. He inspired millions.. or maybe billions.
“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”
[The Wall Street Journal, May 25, 1993]
"Thank you Steve. You've taught all of us wonders. You will be greatly missed."
Whats up? We know a lot of you loyal fans who can't wait for the NEW JomSocial have been asking about our 2.4 release. Guess what? The date is nearing. Some may ask,”Why does it take so long?” Well, this is because we want to make sure that you will experience JomSocial 2.4 in its most stable form. With this, you can spend more time nurturing your users and building up content. This is what a cool social network should be about after all!
The past few weeks have been a very productive period for us. With the release of the first JomSocial 2.4 Alpha last August, we are now gearing up to present you with Alpha 4 next Friday, 23rd September 2011. Before getting your hands dirty with the Alpha version, let us enlighten you with the experiments that we have gone through and the outcome which were later made as the principal guideline in the development of the next major iterations of JomSocial, your favourite social networking platform.
Although seemingly young in age, the analytical and statistical information that we have amassed through our demo site, internal development lab, and our experience in building up the Joomla People Portal is so ginormous that it would easily dwarf the biggest of all dwarves. The accumulated information was then put under a thoughtful scrutiny before the eyes of the JomSocial team.
