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."

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.

There are a lot of reasons to adopt your own social networking. Some of you do it to increase traffic, build a niche community for the business, or simply to keep in touch with your friends. No matter how you will use it, social network is the way of the future. There are a lot to think when it comes to building your own social network. Here we have 5 aspect in choosing the best social networking software for your community.
Social Network features
Each community has unique requirements that differentiate them from the rest. It is important for you to identify important features most suitable for your niche. For example, does it allow video sharing or video hosting? Do you need event management? How about groups feature? Does it respect your members’ privacy? You can usually find the answer by going to your social networking script's feature page.
Early in the morning yesterday (Malaysian time), Syam(our server admin) was awaken by a downtime notification on JomSocial servers. He tried to connect and reboot the server manually but there was no response from the server, which is a rare case. We contacted RimuHosting and they informed us that they were having a power disruption on their servers and were working on it.
We received several complaints from our users especially from those who use version older than 2.2. In the older version of JomSocial, the update checker is set to check available update on JomSocial.com server. Since the server is down, it could not connect to our servers resulting to the slowdown. This issue is fixed in later versions. Besides, there was supposed to be a DNS fail-over that would redirect all requests to a backup server. Unfortunately, it didn't happen.
This is the first of many blog posts that will be posted in the next coming weeks, updating you, our loyal fans with the hottest JomSocial news, most especially on JomSocial 2.4 development updates and behind-the-scenes shots.
We have officially started developing JomSocial 2.4 shortly after the release of JomSocial 2.2.1. Our developers are grouped into four with each group having a dedicated web-designer to bring in the creative juice; doodling everywhere in our office. Seriously, they do doodle everywhere. Proof of this will be shown in the next blog post, your honor.
