Ulti Counter version 1.0.7 has just been released. This countdown module has one new feature: if the event time arrives, the counter will start to count the time up. This means it will show the time since the event, so the module can now also be used to show the time passed since a certain event.

First I want to make clear that I really love the Joomla Extensions Directory. There are currently over 4000 extensions available. Almost anything you can imagine is there and in a lot of cases for free. Joomla is a great CMS and the overwhelming amount of extensions that are available makes it just fantastic. Still there are 3 things that I really don't like about the JED.
Version 1.0.3 of Ulti Polaroid has been released. This plugin gives a polaroid effect to your images. This new release fixes three issues:
- There was a problem in Internet Explorer when you put 2 polaroids next to each other
- The parameter to change the border width didn't function as it should
- The size of the polaroid was in a few cases a problem, which made a part of the polaroid invisible.
The new version is now available for download.
There are 2 SQL injection vulnerabilities discovered in 2 different external Joomla Components. The first one is in the Nice Talk component. The second one in DS syndicate component. If you use any of these two components, make sure to get a security update from their owners as soon as possible.
There was a problem with 2 clocks which showed the time in different cities around the world. In this new release, these clocks have been replaced with other clocks that have the same functionality. Meanwhile the collection of clocks was increased from 30 to 40!
