Milford Haven, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 19, 2008 -- Jomres 2.7 is now available. Given the huge number of changes we've opted to bump the version number direct to 2.7, instead of just calling it 2.6.3, which it was previously.
Note : This version includes some small changes to the booking form therefore if you are running a customised set of templates you will need to upgrade your existing templates to work with this new version. Typically, all you'll need to do is add a "discount" div to the form, which you can see in the new core form underneath the messages div.
Also, do not use the 2.6.2 plugins as most of them are superseded by this version. If you are running Jomres with any minicomponents check the list below to see if any of them have been incorporated into the core system. If so, you'll need to uninstall the minicomponents from your system.
This is mainly a consolidation build where we've imported a whole bunch of plugins into the core system now that we're content that these complicated plugins work as anticipated (integration however was a whole different ball game). That said, there are a few additions like the much anticipated Edit Booking functionality, SSL switching (Mambo only) and a minimalist General Configuration setting.
The language files have taken something of a battering with scores of new lines added to take into account the new functionality so if you have customised your language file(s) make sure that you back it up before upgrading.
A quick summary of changes since 2.6.2:
Added new functionality whereby default room/tariff administration is the new "Normal" mode. Provides a simpler way of administering tariffs for new users. Experienced users can switch to Advanced mode (General Config -> Tariffs and Currencies tab) to edit rooms and tariffs and create room features.
