JomSocial 1.8 "Wazi" is Here!


It has been a long wait, but it is finally here. We are proud to announce that JomSocial 1.8 "Wazi", which means "open" (in Swahili no less), is now available for download. So, what can you expect? There are lots and lots of enhancement. Simply put, we believe it is the top social networking software you can buy today!

altIntegrated Event Management

This is HUGE and we are particularly proud of this feature. What it does is to allow you to create and manage events easily. It will also intelligently display map as required with zero configuration. You can define how many "seats" available for the event, which allows you to limit event participants.

altProfile Video Support

Yes, we all know what profile picture is, those little avatars you see at your profile page. With JomSocial 1.8, we introduce something new, profile video! Introduce yourself, be more than just a picture.

altDrag & Drop Application Positioning

In previous release, there is only 1 position where you can display your application, which is in the main content section. In 1.8, we have introduced a "sidebar" content position. This gives users a lot more flexibility where an app can be displayed. Oh, you just need to drag and drop your apps to the desired position.

altSmarter & More Informative Activity Stream

You will notice a much better, more informative activity stream in this new version. We spent a lot of time refining each activity. It will automatically summarize the content for the activities if necessary.

Enhanced Media Handling

Handling of photos and video has been improved in so many ways. During photo upload for example, you will be able to preview the uploaded photos immediately. In album view, you can now re-arrange your photos easily, with a simple drag & drop operation. Browsing those photos is now a little easier with support for keyboard navigation.

These are just some of the new features. You might notice some features right away, but some might need a couple of clicks to be discovered. Take it for a spin! Fun is guaranteed by creating social networking sites with JomSocial!
