Fabrik 2.0rc2 has now been released and is available in the downloads section

The main reason for this release is to address an issue with installation on Joomla 1.5.10. If you are using Joomla 1.5.10 then we strongly recommend you update to this version.

Welcome to the new fabrikar.com site!

We have finally migrated from Joomla 1.0.x to Joomla 1.5.10 and have updated the components we use to in the site. So a big thanks to to the following components:

The Fabrik team are proud to announce the release of Fabrik 2.0rc1 - THE Joomla application builder. Again a special thanks to everyone that has helped make this possible - especially those of you who provide translation files, this is an often un-thanked task but a vital one in enabling Fabrik for as many people as possible!

First of all this post isn't really anything to do with Fabrik, but I'm going to expand the blog to talk about various Joomla 1.5 coding problems, solutions and best practices. Please feel free to correct, contradict and eventually even concur with what I'm saying in the comments!

These posts won't be about how to start coding Joomla components, there's lots of tutorials and documentation out there to get you started.

So this first post will address an issue that I have constantly struggled with and until today have never had a solution that I felt was totally acceptable.

We are proud to release the next and hopefully last beta version of Fabrik, Fabrik 2.0b3. This release contains a large number of bug fixes (over 470 commits since the second beta) from the previous 2.0b2 release from June.

This release would not have been possible without the communities help in reporting bugs, suggesting fixes, posting translations and general inspiration! I encourage you all to continue helping us so we can quickly move towards release candidates and then a final version.

Need a quick way to annotate your Joomla and Fabrik pages, during the development phase? If so then look no further, I've just released a small Joomla 1.5 plug-in that allows you to use the Protonotes service to annotate your web pages. Notes can be dragged, hidden, marked as reviewed and completed. To get started, dowload the protonotes plug-in from Joomlacode and create an account on the protonotes site.
