It was long pass due to update the site to Joomla 3. Now that it's done I'm also updating the component information and images. A lot has changed since the last update and a lot was developed. Stay tunned for more information.
Moving out from SVN.... into GIT
I'm moving out from the subversion development and into Git. For now the project is hosted in github (https://github.com/VisiGod/com_tracker). Anyone is free to join, fork, help develop and submit issues.
On a side note, now that school is getting easier (less disciplines to do), I will have more time to work on the component. I will also try to build a version that will be compatible with Joomla 2.5 and 3.x series.
New version available. Forum updated and site is being updated
I've released a new version of the component that is compatible with Joomla 2.5 series. The forum has been cleaned of old topics. I'm currently making some images and videos to update the site with the new component instructions and manual.
Note: Don't forget that this is a new version and it can't be used to upgrade the old one.
Also, don't forget to show the love for it if you feel it's right.
XBT Tracker future development
Now that the school semester is over and I'm on vacation from work, I've looked again into the component and I will separate the component into a main area and several addons since it will be easier to maintain and debug. Here's the conclusion I've reached so far:
Main component: XBT Tracker frontend
Addons: - Donations - Licenses - Countries - Comments - Peer ban - IP ban - Download/Upload multiplier - Peer speed
The core component will work without any of the addons enabled, thus making it easier to test.
I will also change the core code that is "taking care" of the uploaded torrents since the current code is old and buggy. I will use an external php class thus making the code more independent.
I'm also looking at the possibility to separate the user information from the Joomla core #__users table to prevent problems with other components and future updates.
In the next days I will re-read all the forum requests and will put a list of what will be developed and what will not be. If you have any request, it's the right time to write a post about it. If you found any more bugs that aren't reported, I appreciate that you report them. If you want to keep any information private, please send me an email (visigod_AT_visigod_DOT_com) with the bug.
