Aliro offers alternative upgrade path to Mambo / Joomla 1.0 installations
Web sites running Mambo or Joomla 1.0 have been left stranded without support and two choices - face steep upgrade paths or go it alone. The Aliro project has changed all that with the release of Maliro and J-One-Plus.
Nov. 21, 2011 - PRLog -- Aliro is known for its advanced CMS framework - with roots going back to Mambo 4.6 and Joomla 1.0 releases. Developers wishing to customize / control areas of the framework turn to Aliro to meet their specific needs. Of late, we've noticed two disturbing trends in the Mambo and Joomla communities - Mambo's stagnation and Joomla's abandonment of 1.0.x support - both forcing users to choose to face a potentially challenging migration or be left without support.
Now, there is a third alternative. The Aliro Project has released drop in replacements for Mambo 4.6 and Joomla 1.0 which have been named Maliro and J-One-Plus respectively. Both are similar in that they incorporate elements of the advanced Aliro system in order to eliminate weaknesses in the older systems. The code from the older systems has also been upgraded to work in a PHP 5.3.x environment.
Maliro or J-One-Plus can be installed to create a new web site, following exactly the same procedure as for Mambo or Joomla 1.0, or the code can be installed into existing Mambo or Joomla 1.0 sites without any other modifications being required.
Support for Maliro and J-One-Plus is expected to be available for the forseeable future from the Aliro Project. Thus one of the major concerns of owners of web sites running Mambo and Joomla 1.0 is eliminated. The often substantial investment in those sites is protected.
A support ticket system is in place to handle problems. The Aliro project will issue future bug fix and enhancement releases. Premium support is available for a modest fee and professional services are also offered for custom developments.
The Maliro or J-One-Plus package can be downloaded free from http://aliro.org.
