DPCalendar 7.3

We are happy to announce that we released DPCalendar 7.3 to the public. This is a minor release with a new geolocation based tax feature and additional payment providers, read on for more details about them and what we added on top of these new features.

DPCalendar 7.2

We are happy to announce that we released DPCalendar 7.2 with some new goodies to the public. According to our development roadmap we want to ship new Minor versions in November and May but due some private circumstances we had to postpone this one for June. So we had enough time for testing and polishing that you will get a shiny new version of one of the best Joomla event management extension.

In this release we were focusing mainly on recurring events improvement and to make the map experience better on touch devices. Read on for more details about the changes in version 7.2.

With the release of Joomla 3.9, the community got a new suite of privacy tools in core. DPCalendar 7.1 hooks into this suite and extends it with DPCalendar related data. The best part is that this functionality is even available in the free version as we are convinced that everybody has the right for privacy. This and more features are shipped with the newest version of DPCalendar. Read on for the full release note and grab a copy of DPCalendar 7.1 in our download portal or buy a subscription if you need pro features.

DPCalendar 7

A goal of a new major version is to be prepared for the future. We worked hard on DPCalendar in the last months to achieve that by using technologies and methods which can serve us best in the next years. The architecture should be as much performant, accessible and secure as possible while still offering the flexibility you expect from our flagship product. To ensure that we touched over 1000 files, replaced over 50'000 lines of code and added another 20'000 new lines. We have now a clear, front end framework agnostic, HTML markup which follows the BEM methodology to make CSS styling a breeze. Actually Joomla 4 will use the same approach too (you see the link?).

Before we dive into the amazing new features of v7, we would like to shoot out a big THANK YOU to Joomla51. They helped us massively on the front end part while still doing heavy work on the back end template for Joomla 4. Without their input, DPCalendar would not be where it is now.

So what's new in the biggest release in DPCalendar history?

DPCalendar GDPR

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) law is enacting on 25. May 2018 and forces web site owners to protect the privacy of their visitors in a restrictive way. These affects also the Joomla CMS and it's extensions. Luckily some of the Joomla core developers teamed up to create a privacy extension, which will be released with Joomla 3.9. More information can be found in the following links:

Additionally the Joomla extensions directory contains some helpful extensions to handle cookies and more. But GDPR has also effect for extension developers, especially when they have user related workflows like DPCalendar does with it's event and booking system.
