Your favorite way to mobilize Joomla! has just got better: Mobile Joomla! 1.1 is now available to download! We've fixed various issues and made the installation package three times smaller than before.
The biggest change you will notice with Mobile Joomla! 1.1 is the device detection mechanism selection during installation and upgrade process. As you may know, we have been using open source TeraWURFL database to identify devices. As Mobile Joomla! itself, TerWURFL evolved in time into DB API by Scientia Mobile and licensed under AGPL license. Since Mobile Joomla! is licensed under GPLv2, we wanted to make this as clear as possible for the convenience.
DB API solution comes without any extra cost, courtesy of Scientia mobile. If you decide to use AGPL licensed Scientia Mobile DB API, you will need to read and agree wit the license terms to proceed. If AGPL licensing does not suit your needs or you do not wish to use DB API for another reason, you just can skip this option and our own device detection mechanism will be used by default.
If you have any questions or comments on this issue, please let us know here.
