The second alpha for Simple Review 2.1 will be released shortly. The current version does not work on PHP 4 due to get_class() returning a value in lowercase, as opposed to PHP 5 returning the correctly cased value. The category HTML has been completely separated into a separate and simple file (view), so now almost anyone should be able to easily change the layout of the category pages. The languages have also started to be migrated into a new format in a central place. I am not using the Joomla 1.5 ini format as it makes it more difficult to maintain compatibility with Joomla 1.0, however the new format for Simple Review will be just as easy for translators.
Version 2.0.1 of the component has been released. It works natively on Joomla 1.5. It is an alpha release so there will be issues – do not install it on a live site.
Please download it and report any bugs in the specific forum. There are some known issues which I will report in the forum. I have also re-opened registration on the forum.
The license has also changed from the MPL to the GNU GPL.
Existing modules and mambots do not currently work.
Simple Review now installs and functions on Joomla 1.5! I will be releasing an Alpha version this week for testing purposes.
