There is an organizing group evaluating what the level of interest would be in a 3-day Fabrik Conference to be held initially in Keystone Resort in the Rocky Mountains near Denver Colorado some time in early November 2013.

The purpose is to get Fabrik power users together with each other and with Rob and Hugh to exchange experiences about using Fabrik for real-world apps. There would be one optional day for 'Fabrik 101' where Fabrik experts would teach technically-oriented noob's how to develop apps in Fabrik followed by 2 days of a main tent session, lots of workshops, presentations and birds of a feather sessions and a group dinner similar to the format of most tech conferences.

The Fabrik team is proud to announce that we have released Fabrik 3.0.8 for Joomla 2.5. Fabrik 3.0.8 is a maintenance release.

We did say that the next release would be for 3.1 but we have decided to implement some additional changes into 3.1 to greatly simplify the way repeat groups/elements are rendered and accessed in templates/code. We think that now is the right time to do that, but of course that means pushing back the release.

A change in Focus

We've had a lot of discussions internally and with our users to define a business model that will allow for the stability and growth of Fabrik.

Our goals are to enable as many people to use Fabrik as possible and to give top notch support for our subscribers.

We're hugely excited to announce that we have released Fabrik 3.0.7 for Joomla 2.5

We strongly advise you to update if you are running earlier versions of Fabrik. Fabrik 3.0.7 is not for Joomla 3+ - for that you will need to use Fabrik 3.1b. Obviously our next focus will be to release a release candidate for Fabrik 3.1b. All of the changes listed here will also be available in Fabrik 3.1rc1

The latest version of Fabrik 3.1 beta is out now, you can get it from the downloads site

This is for both Joomla 2.5 and more importantly for Joomla 3.0. It is an beta release so please be aware that there may be bugs. If you find any issues please report them on the forum. It would be fantastic to get as many people testing this as possible so we can quickly move to a stable release

There's a new subscriber video tutorial on the site, informing you how to set up Fabrik's Twitter form plug-in.
