Today we are incredibly excited to introduce Joocial 9 Alpha 3 release of our future hub for CMSs. This is mainly an internal milestone, but it marks the point where the new software is fully operational. All the moving parts are defined and working as expected.
Joocial 9 aims to provide a better toolkit for post sharing running everywhere: iOS, Android, Desktop, and on the web as a Progressive Web App.
Joocial 9 will offer a consistent user interface to handle social content management on the underlying platform in a portable, cross-platform way. That means the Joocial app will work no matter where it runs.
Joocial 9 has some handy features:
That’s a long way of saying there are cool features in Joocial we think our users will appreciate.
As a glimpse of how it is working today in our testing sites, in the following screenshots, we can show how the new Composer and the Channels are managed in the new user interface:
No migration. The new version is going to be fully compatible. It will be installable side-by-side with the current version 8. We expect to support both versions at least for one year.
In the upcoming release, we are going to remove features that were defined ages ago, they have been with us for years, but they are no longer actively used.
Today’s alpha release represents more than one year and a half of hard work over thousands of commits, and we’re just getting started. Joocial 9 is not production ready yet, but we hope to be at that point soon. For Joocial 9 to move forward, we are going to need your feedback and testing.
In the next months, we are going to publish a series of Beta versions for testing. To simplify the testing, the new Joocial 9 will be installable side-by-side with the stable version. So, you will be able to test the new shiny feature along the current installation.

In this year, we have released several updates to AutoTweetNG and Joocial 8, and at the same time continued the development of the next major version, Joocial 9.

The connected life has these wonders. In the past week, we released AutoTweet and Joocial 8.16 to support Joomla's Custom Fields. Today, we are releasing AutoTweet and Joocial 8.17 to support two breaking news from the biggest social media outlets:
The new AutoTweet and Joocial 8.17 beta version are available in the Download Area, and the stable versions are going to be released in the next week.
Joomla! has recently introduced a powerful new feature, Custom Fields. Now, it is possible to create articles and extended them with a rich set of fields. By default, Joomla! comes with these field types: Calendar, Checkboxes, Color, Editor, Integer, List, List of Images, Media, Radio, Sql, Text, Textarea, Url, User and Usergroup. On top of this, more field types can be installed and they are readily available on Joomla! extension directory.
To support this new ecosystem of functionality, we have augmented the integration of AutoTweet Free, PRO, and Joocial (8.16). The default content plugin, that processes Joomla! Content Articles, is now able to include the original text fields and/or the new custom fields. In the plugin configuration, we have added a new Post Template where a full message can be shaped to reach the site target.
To sum up, now, the basic component of Joomla! raises the bar of the content definition and becomes a complete Content Construction Kit (CCK). This feature is virtually a game changer and our social media management extensions (AutoTweet Free, PRO, and Joocial v8.16) are ready to accept the challenge.
To test the new functionality, version 8.16 is already available in the Beta channel and the stable version is going to be released in the next week.

This month, we have a good share of news. At first glance, we see a convergence of several technologic trends, from Facebook Open Graph tags improvements to Web and Push Notifications on mobile apps for Joomla!.
AutoTweet and Joocial 8.15 are coming with several brand new features and improvements:
This month, we have released SlimApps for DJ-Classifieds and EasySocial. SlimApps are our consulting projects where we combine a mobile app with a CMS to build a seamless integration. Working hand in hand with our clients and partners, we are ready to release two new SlimApps to the public. These apps show how a convergence between mobile apps and CMSs is happening right now to empower a new technology wave of innovation. For more information, please, visit this link.
