We’re really excited to share that the development process for the new Joomla Extension Directory (JED) getting close to the finish line. As of right now, the front-end and back-end development is approximately 90% complete, and the JED Team is seeking beta testers to locate bugs and provide detailed feedback.
Call for Volunteers
Once Fabrik is finished with the development phase, the JED Team will conduct internal testing for roughly one week, ending on October 3, 2014.
After we conduct these initial tests, we’ll conduct testing with the following groups for a two week period of time:
- 10 normal JED users (with no extensions listed on the current site)
- 10 extension developers that have listings in the current site
After the limited beta round we will open up testing for all volunteers interested in helping test functionality.
Please note that each of the dates listed below is subject to change if any major bugs are found. Any changes will be updated on the JED3 Project Status page.
