Support continues for Joomla 3.x branch only

3 years 1 month ago #300032 by slabbi
Dear friends,

I am very sorry but after ten years of active development work on uddeIM I have decided to discontinue any developments for Joomla 4.0.The step is not easy for me because the work has been a lot of fun in recent years and the many positive feedback has helped me to keep improving uddeIM.

uddeIM has a long history of development, so it's probably the only component that can still be installed on Mambo and Joomla 1.0.

And again, with the release of Joomla 4.0, many changes will be made to the Joomla framework, so that uddeIM will not work anymore.
I - a single developer - do not have the spare time to constantly respond to these changes. Although the improvements to the Framework make sense from a technical point of view, they are, in my opinion, too frequent and it lacks backward compatibility

I just see one way to not let uddeIM die: I would continue to maintain the uddeIM core in the short term, but urgently need help fixing the code to run on Joomla 4.0. After fixing the code I would like to transfer the project if there is interest.

Are there any volunteers?

Hi Slabbi,

you find me shocked to read these news. I had even donated for the premium plugins of Uddeim. And now I read that it shall not work in Joomla 4.0 :( :sick:

Please reconsider to continue it. I would offer my help but I am no PHP programmer and I also run no CB to be able to really support it.

I read this Blogpost at Joomlashack

Perhaps you could contact them, mybe they are willing to adopt uddeIM.

If the problem can be solved why worry? If the problem cannot be solved, worrying will do you no good.
