As you may have noticed the past few weeks, we have unpublished the product pages for K2mart and SuperBlogger. As it occurs with every other product or technology, there is a time when we have to say goodbye, either because a new better product or technology fulfills our needs or simply because it's not required anymore.
We will of course honor the remaining subscriptions purchased for as long as they last and specifically provide patches and other fixes in Virtuemart v2. As a sidenote, I'd like to say that the new K2 version 3 released soon has integrated lots of programming concepts from K2mart and thus a true eCommerce solution based on K2 alone is on our roadmap for the coming years (perhaps as part of our K2 Pro initiative).
We're also bidding adieu to SuperBlogger, a small (but pioneering) content plugin which was released back in 2008. SuperBlogger was released for Joomla 1.5 and integrated the hot Disqus commenting service as well as (then and now) popular social services into a single plugin, which could extend any Joomla website. And because it was the first plugin to introduct the MVC templating pattern for plugins in Joomla (still not possible by default) it could easily transform a typical boring blog section in Joomla into a WordPress-like equivalent. A well known network of tech blogs run entirely on SuperBlogger for as long as they were based on Joomla and it was amazing to see that coming out of a fun little project of mine. SuperBlogger sold around 4,000 subscriptions and it put a sock into WP fanboys' mouths at the time. SuperBlogger was partly the basis for some features in K2 when originally launched. But of course K2 is a much more than that already. It has redefined content management in Joomla and it's growing strong every year.
As with K2mart, we will honor any remaining subscriptions for SuperBlogger and provide support until they expire. The documentation pages will remain online.
We thank the people who bought and supported and used these 2 extensions all these years.
The future is now ahead and it's written with two letters: K2 ;)
