Today, we are incredibly glad to announce you that Gallery 2.0 is ready and available for downloading. Yes, right! It's time to create amazingly beautiful and powerful galleries.
We did a great job and today we want to tell you about our results, about a new version of our Gallery component for Joomla! CMS.
But, before we begin, we want to notice, that Gallery 2.0 is a totally new component. The only thing that unites the Gallery 2.x with the previous version is an opportunity to update from Gallery 1.x to 2.0.
The most important feature of the Gallery 2.0 is that now you can create an immense gallery with a great number of pictures, and the gallery will work perfectly! Yes, right - perfectly!
In the Gallery testing process, one of our users uploaded to the Gallery more than 7 000 pictures, and the result was fantastic! Gallery works very quickly, and in the admin panel all changes happen without any delays.
We have completely redesigned the admin panel. It has become modern, beautiful and incredibly comfortable! By means of the context menu, you can incredibly quickly and effectively manage the folders and pictures in the gallery.Try New Admin panel!
