Hello and may I wish you a wonderful year! We have the pleasure to begin this year with an update to the AVChat Integration Kits for Joomla! This update adds 2 new features and fixes some reported bugs. Here is a quick list of what we’ve added: When available, the age is added to username in the user’s list (only for JomSocial). As an  administrator you can also change this option from the AVChat General Settings page. You can add a custom image/badge to users by setting the path to the image in the AVChat General Settings page. You can also control what user groups (Premium/Gold/Paid) inherit the badge. You can now turn off the ability for certain user levels[…]

As you probably know, Joomla! 1.7 was released last week. The second day we tested our Joomla! 1.6 Integration Kit and it worked like a charm with Joomla! 1.7 . The only problem we found was that JomSocial 2.2 and Community Builder 1.4 are not yet compatible with Joomla! 1.7. So if you want to use AVChat 3 with Joomla! 1.7 you can use the AVChat 3 Integration Kit for Joomla! 1.6, but without the support for JomSocial and Community Builder. We will announce here and on our forum (dedicated topic for Joomla! 1.7 Development) when news are coming on the way.
