Downloads Pro news: beta 3, reduced shareware price
Downloads Pro beta 3 (v126.96.36.199) released
I'm very pleased to announce the release of Downloads Pro beta 3! Beta 2 was released in December, so this release is long-overdue. This website has been running the latest CVS of the module for several months now, and you may have noticed the public mirror submission system. This is a core feature of beta 3, as well as the beginnings of l10n-compatibility. The module will be fully compatible with l10n standards very soon, at which point Downloads Pro final will be released.
Download Now!Price of shareware license reduced
The price of the shareware license has been reduced to $40. Benefits of the shareware license include:
priority technical support and service
ability to promote and or sell commercial/shareware products through the module
authorization to remove the output of copyright notices (but you may NOT remove credits from the source files)
Due to the huge explosion of the cpg-nuke/dragonfly cms systems, the pressure on our shoulders has increased drasticaly.
we can't keep up with all current projects and modules so it would be wise to expand the developers section with people who understand PHP.
