For better support of JotCache and new coming Joomla extensions was prepared new web site http://www.jotcomponents.net.
On this new site you can find also JotCache forum for exchange of ideas and experience with caching in Joomla environment for JotCache users. Particularly questions of compatibility with different other Joomla extensions and specific template solutions (engines) are very welcomed. Also downloading support was upgraded to allow possible update automation. Full move of JotCache related stuff to new site is planned during one month.

|JotCache ver.2.0.7 - important upgrade for Joomla 2.5 |
|Thursday, 31 May 2012 07:26 |
With extending number of live web sites running on Joomla 2.5 it was possible to collect related behavior reports and some obstacle descriptions from user community. Thanks to all who found the time and courage to write their reports via this site contact form about JotCache performance, settings and problems.
Special thanks to Ruud van Lent who pointed to uncompatibility of JotCache with new Social Login extension. He allowed problem analysis on his test site which shows remarkable influence. Running each mentioned extension alone was without any problem. But when both extensions were enabled no matter in which enabling sequence then site totally crashed. Coming back to development server with installed extensions was found Joomla core autoloader conflict. Autoloader was not able to recognize actual path of class (JController) with fatal consequencies.
New version of JotCache, ver.2.0.7 for Joomla 2.5 contains code changes to avoid Joomla core autoloader conflict. Also small maintenance code changes were included into this new version. Download of installation file you can find here. The description of JotCache operation and administration is presented in JotCache 2.0 Help.

|JotCache 2.0 – New level of Joomla page caching |
|Monday, 12 September 2011 17:13 |
JotCache is advanced solution for page caching in Joomla framework. This solution replaces standard System-Cache plugin and it usually works along enabled Global Cache Settings. It consists from two major parts - JotCache plugin performing functions related to file caching and JotCache component allowing cache management. Additionally can be used JotCache Cron for periodical cache cleaning (garbage collection of expired cached items). For moderate loaded web sites is available in plugin as standard feature autoclean function.
Development of JotCache started more as one year ago with first version coming out in June 2010. At first thought as experimental proof-of-concept next versions of JotCache were used on different web sites some of them very large and heavy loaded with good results and administrators perceiving. Users feedback allowed to extend and steady further develop its functions. More as 15 thousands downloads were reached till now. It is time to enhance JotCache for better performance and management.
New JotCache ver.2.0 is fully redesigned page caching solution coming from base of previous versions with these major features :
- Reworked cache management with faster opening on larger web sites – the cached files are presented with cached page titles and links, added more informations about cached page (browser type, language, non-routed query string), implemented items ordering, changed information about date/time of caching (incl. indication of expired or no more existing cache files)
- Better exclusion of selected pages from page caching
- Upgraded plugin functions for more powerfull autoclean (garbage collection) activity and browser caching.
- New common installer for one-step installation of JotCache component and plugin in upgrade mode
I like to express thanks to all contributors, testers and users giving valuable feedback to achieve this new stage of cache solution. Download of installation file you can find here.
Inside installation file you can find short readme.txt and on this site is also published full text of JotCache 2.0 Help.

|JotCache 2.0 for Joomla 2.5 framework |
|Tuesday, 31 January 2012 17:34 |
Each of the last major versions of Joomla (1.6, 1.7 and 2.5) have some important differencies in core code which have influence on page caching operation. From this reason it was necessary to develop specific solutions which are working only limited on one major version. With coming new long-term supported Joomla 2.5 here are also new version of JotCache, ver.2.0.6. This version has now all functions implemented which are known from versions for Joomla 1.7 and 1.5 (JotCache version for J1.6 is not more developed). But of course some small obstacles related to PHP 5.3 (deprecated functions) were solved for coming JotCache 2.0.6 for J2.5. Download of installation file you can find here. The description of JotCache operation and administration is presented in JotCache 2.0 Help.

Difficult conditions were present during ARRL (American Radio Relay League) RTTY Round Up Contest held on weekend 8.-9.1.2011, but my WAS (Worked All States) award hunt was partially successfull thanks to KB7Q (Montana) and KU1T (West Virginia) on 14 MHz reaching total count of 46 states (North Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho still missing). N7ESU (Idaho) was shortly on my screen but I could not break the big guns. I hope next time maybe it will be better.
