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
Just a little over a month has passed since our house was destroyed in a fire. A magical month! Our friends and community supported us with such vigour and warmth that Boons family never had a reason to complain. We've been given all the basic things, toys for the baby son, violin for the bigger boy and a lovely soups
Last night my wife and I woke up to a strange cracking sound coming from the kitchen, like a clumsy intruder shuffling things at 4am. Just about 20 minutes later nothing was left of our house, the home-office, computers, violins, guitars, books or anything at all. We got out with kids a minute before it would be too late. Thank
We have just finished setting up SSL encryption and authentication for Boonex.com site-wide. This means that all your sensitive data transmitted via Boonex.com is protected and will only be seen by those who you mean to show it to. Since a lot of web-masters share site access details, use internal messages, make payments and fill-in potentially private information in their
This is a "service" version update with 42 fixes and 11 enhancements. Since 7.2 has introduced so many significant changes a service update is coming out hot on its heels to address any issues that may have been missed in 7.2.
This update has some critical bugs fixed as well as nice enhancements. We recommend to test it carefully, so unnoticed bugs can be fixed before the final release. IMPORTANT: this version is not suitable for production sites and there will be no upgrade packs for it.
Boonex is a community. We have thousands of really active members that build software, help in forums, share ideas and run various businesses connected to Boonex. So, generally it is best to see Boonex as big collective. There is also what we call a "core team". A bunch of guys that breathe Dolphin, day-in and day-out. Every one of us
DolphinPro is a PHP platform, for the most part. It's incredible how PHP, initially created as a small "hobby' language evolved into a de-facto #1 standard for web-development. It now powers estimated 40% of all websites in the world, including Facebook. So, it would be safe to say that people browse PHP-driven pages most of the time. So, if you are
We are officially a PayPal Partner now (for PayPal North America Partnership program). What it means for DolphinPro users is that we will now have better and more tools to improve PayPal products in Dolphin, track any issues and fine-tune Dolphin to make PayPal work seamlessly. In further updates we plan to focus more on e-commerce and payment aspects of DolphinPro.
Just a few weeks ago we launched the Mission: Diligent Support, with the goal to improve our communication with customers, offer options for dedicated support and improve overall experience for non-technical users. Since that post we have made some changes in direction - got rid of Zopim chat and Groove CRM, but switched to Intercom system to do both. We've also
Zero. That’s how many members your “community” site has right after you've completed installation, initial setup, branding and customisation. Not much of a community, eh!
Dolphin.Pro is awesome! It’s getting better and better. And still, very often people have troubles with installation, setup, settings, hosting, etc. Some need dedicated support. Some just need a good hosting to start with. Some want to try running a licensed site for while without paying a full license fee. Dolphin.Pro is very powerful. Its power unfolds more and more when
Here is upgrade patch from 7.1.6 to 7.2.0. If you have custom templates and/or modules then it's better to ask authors about compatibility with 7.2.0 version before upgrading.
Dear developers, designers, web-masters! If you're working with Dolphin.Pro, either creating extensions, adapting it for your project or modifying it for your clients, please consider forking it from our GitHub repository and submitting pull requests when you make improvements.
As planned, we have now upgraded all old licenses to "Dolphin.Pro License" for all accounts. Prime holders received 2 licenses per Prime package, and all Permanent licenses have been upgraded one-to-one. Mobile licenses are also converted to full Dolphin.Pro licenses. Every Dolphin.Pro license allows branding-free use of Dolphin.Pro on one domain. Dolphin Mobile Apps will connect to registered sites only, so
Dolphin.Pro development is moved to GitHub Dolphin.Pro Code is where the code now lives. Developers are encouraged to fork the repository and then use that as your own centralised repository. From there you can send "pull requests" to the Boonex Dolphin.Pro project with your changes and then we can review them before deciding whether to include them in to the main code-base.
Cleaner and leaner Boonex.com is going live! The site is updated with refreshed look, Dolphin.Pro 7.2 materials, memberships information and new licensing terms. There are a few more changes coming over the next few days, so please don't mind the slightly wacky Market and Trac. They'll look great soon! License Pricing
After two years of “service” updates and 6 months of feature development and testing, the new Dolphin.Pro 7.2 FINAL is released and is available for immediate download.
In preparation for the upcoming changes and planned Knowledge Base overhaul we have restructured Boonex Forums. Some categories have been moved to Archive, and some have been merged with new ones. General idea is to step away from software versions or types (web, mobile, desktop, trident, etc.). Forums are now focused on users intention. Those who come to learn the basics go
Today we are releasing Dolphin.Pro 7.2 RC. This update is particularly important for all developers who have extensions in BoonEx Market. There will be no or only minor changes from RC to Final, so now is the best time to update your extensions to ensure compatibility. Remember, Market will be listing only 7.2-compatible extensions as Featured.
In just one week Boonex will turn 15. Perfect milestone to introduce some serious changes. In this post I will briefly outline what is planned for the month of September. More details posts will follow.
