Kajona-Looking back at 2009 / forward to 2010

The year 2009 was dedicated to the internationalization, introducing the languages Russian and Portuguese with Kajona 3.2.0 and Bulgarian with 3.2.1.
The development and release of the Kajona Language File Editor, a graphical application aiming to support the user-friendly and comfortable maintenance of the language-files, was the logical next step.

Looking at the releases, the 3.2 branch embossed the year 2009. This branch included a dialog-based administration, supporting the user by providing a faster workflow by reducing the load-times and the number of page-reloads. Futhermore, a multiple-file upload was integrated and the cogging of the filemanager with other modules was improved, resulting in a more intuitive experience when handling files, e.g. in the galeries or downloads.

From our point of view, the participation as an exhibitor at the Open Source fair OpenRheinRuhr was one of the most exiting events this year. We had the possibility to present Kajona to a broader audience and had a lot of interesting discussions.

This was the past - lets have a look into the future.
The upcoming release of Kajona, version 3.3, will bring a lot of new features under the hood. This includes the introduction of support for the database SQLite, an integrated PDF interface and a new library to create graphical charts.
The internal class-hierarchy will be redesigned, simplifying the creation of new modules. A reworked portaleditor will make the editing of contents even more comfortable.

But before the release of 3.3, the launch of the new KajonaBase is the upcoming event. KajonaBase is designed as a community portal, providing all the functions needed to easily upload, share and download extensions like modules, page elements, templates and also tutorials for Kajona. Be excited! And, by the way, since it's almost mandatory: the download statistics. With over 22.500 downloads in 2009 we slightly increased the number of the previous year!

To put it in a nutshell - we look forward to an exiting year 2010, launching a lot of new features, including the KajonaBase. But - all this is only possible due to the feedback of the users and the help of our team - thank you very much for the great support in 2009. Let's continue 2010 on this base and we can reach anything ;-)

Injader 2009 Summary

Release summary

Some key improvements from 2009 include:

  • WordPress import script
  • Optimised URLs
  • Subscribe to comments by email
  • Navigation types
  • Spam rules
  • Single control panel
  • Theme settings
  • Manage comments
  • RSS 2.0

There have been 14 releases this year, down from 24 in 2008. This shows that things have settled down into a less frantic release schedule than before, but without resulting in the project stagnating.

The changes have not been as large this year as the previous year. 2008 started with 1.3.1 and ended with 2.1.2, while 2009 started with 2.1.3 and ended with 2.4.3. Of course, version numbers alone don't tell the full story, and some great upgrades have been released this year. But overall, it's been a year of consolidation, rather than sweeping changes.

Injader 3

The big plan is to release Injader 3 sometime in 2010. I've blogged about Injader 3 previously. Many of the releases in 2009 have focused on getting us closer to Injader 3. There are some more changes to do before work can start on Injader 3, but we're getting closer now. As a very rough estimate (meaning, don't hold me to this), you may see something sometime during summer 2010. I'll refine this timescale as I have a better idea of how much work is still to be done.
