We are happy to announce the release of DOCman 1.6.7 for Joomla 2.5. This new maintenance release of DOCman is available for download at the Joomlatools Member Center.

This maintenance release brings a many bufg fixes and also includes 3 new features.  Here is an overview of the new features we added :

What’s new

1. View only access for documents

DOCman 1.6.7 now includes ‘view’ only access for documents. To turn on ‘view’ access you need to set the frontend guest access to ‘browse only’ in the DOCman configuration. The  download buttons will then be redirected to the login page.

2. Support for menu metadata and title options

We have added support for the menu metadata (description and keywords) and title options that where introduced in Joomla 2.5. You can set them per menu item and DOCman will then add them to every page of that menu item.

3. Use Unicode SEF slugs

DOCman will generate Unicode slugs if this option is enabled in the Joomla SEF configuration settings. This allows you to have multi-lingual SEF url’s for your DOCman categories and documents.

More information about the new releases and a complete list of all the changes can be found in our DOCman change-logs.

    Hi, what’s the process to update from 1.6.6 to 1.6.7?

  • http://johan.janssens.me Johan Janssens

    Hi Martin, just install the package using the Joomla installer. If you already have DOCman installed an upgrade will be performed automatically.

    I do not know where else to ask this, so I ask it here. Can you please tell me how this new version can take this LONG to be released? Weeks or months go by with no word or update to the status.

    Seriously, I bought a subscription specifically for the 2.0 version and it expired after a year, then bought another and it’s 5 months old. So it is almost a year and a half since you announced this new version.

    Why can’t you give some concrete solid update status. I have had people waiting the WHOLE time for this. They are pissed and have just stopped asking about it. Who knows what they even think now. How can you announce a new version, so people can tell clients about it, and then wait this long to even tell us what’s going on. Microsoft doesn’t even announce new Windows versions that far in advance. And they at least give release dates.

    I forget all about it and then weeks/months go by and I remember, then just get angry. What is going on????

    Let me guess, you are just going to say, “Watch the news for updates” or some rubbish.
