Telling everything about our journey, plans, changes and news.
You may have noticed that your Boonex Account dashboard now has a fancy new "Loyalty Reward" progress bar that shows percentage or, if you're lucky, says "Congrats!". That is the new system which we added in order to say "Thank You!" for the money you pay us. :) The reward is always a free Permanent License. Once you reach 100%, you can
Your site logo is the first thing that people see; it's the look of your community site, and it is supposed to reflect what you do. And still, all too often we see Dolphin sites with either poorly integrated or poorly designed logos. I am not even talking about the choice of style or meaning. I am talking about image quality,
DolphinPro is currently at version 7.3. It may seem like not that far from 7, but, in reality, our "second-digit" updates always include hundreds of improvements. Some people find this versioning confusing, and don't think much about upgrading from, say, 7.1 to 7.3. This is about to change. Starting from the next major release, we will be numbering them according to
The recently introduced Facebook Reactions are here to stay. It's a good thing. Quite simply they let users express they emotj-ions in a more granular, contextual way. The idea of categorised "likes" had been offered a few times for Dolphin, but has never been mainstream enough to justify development for thousands of Dolphin-based sites. Now, however, it will quickly become a
This week we came up with a relatively small site update, mostly catering for the introduction of the new Chat+. Some details have been added to the Features page and the Pricing page has been re-designed. Notably, the price of Premium+ subscriptions went up from $89 to $99 per month, but all existing subscribers will keep paying the old price. Another small
The new DolphinPro is officially released. Once again we've adopted a real dolphin and used its name as a codename for the new version - Scooter. Scooter is one of the best releases we have ever made. Here is why...
Today we hoped to release the final version, but thanks to contributions from "toxalot", community feedback and somewhat "last-moment" improvements in Chat+ integration we decided to take a conservative approach and release an RC first.
Thanks to increased contributions and testing feedback from the community members we've been able to further improve the upcoming 7.3 package, and today we announce the Beta 2. It is possible to upgrade from Beta 1 to Beta 2. We will also support upgrade from Beta 2 onwards.
DolphinPro 7.3 Beta is available for download. We are about a month ahead of the planned schedule. In the last few months we managed to re-arrange our support and development, so that we can now deliver better technical support and version updates in-line with the development roadmap. Yeah! What's New in DolphinPro 7.3 DolphinPro 7.3 is the first version that leverages "social
Boonex added subscriptions for licenses and license+hosting plans a few months ago. Already subscriptions make up more than half of our business and growing. Our own impression so far is quite simple - subscriptions are better for us and for clients. First, initial spent is never too high, and people that are "just trying" can either just for a free
The 2015 was turbulent, but very productive. We released DolphinPro 7.2, introduced subscriptions with hosting, significantly improved customer support, finally "birthed" the first full Trident package, updated Boonex, moved repos to GitHub, launched Dolphin Connect, became PayPal Partners and progressed with DolphinPro 7.3 development enough to feel confident about delivering it on time (1st of March 2016 or earlier). Great, challenging,
Sometimes one social network is not enough. Say, you already have a site for yoga teachers of Canada and plan to open another one for Australia. Then, maybe UK, SA, Russia, China and US. You can launch new sites quickly with DolphinPro, sure, but now you can also create something like "Yoga Teachers Connect" - a centralised sign-on server that
