We are about to release Cobalt 8 with tons of new features. But let me summarise Cobalt 7 current state.
Cobalt 7 is CCK for Joomla 2.5 exclusively. It is a successor of Mighty Resources. And it is really successor. For those who does not know yet we where able to solve a lot of shortcomings of Mighty Resources in Cobalt.
Cobalt is much quicker that Resources. SO far no even single complain from hosting providers about server resources overload. That was one of the most serious problems with Mighty Resources. We have clients with 50 000+ articles plus many relational references and it is only 1-1.5 seconds to build the page.
In Resources it was know as Records mode:private. But now it is called personalisation because it become much more advanced. And in Cobalt 8 there is something outstanding is waiting for you.
As part of the optimisation, filtering process was totally rewritten and it ended up not only great speed but more advanced filtering system. Every field now have it's own filters and there is no need for additional or extra filters like in Resources.
This is something absolutely new. This is a system that allow your customers stay alert of everything important to them, that happen on your site.
Now Moderation has is a separate management interface. There are much more access rules and easier to manage.
Simple Sale Interface. This allows to sell anything on your site. This is Mighty Commerce miniature. It also have product types and multivendor allows your customers to sell from your site.
As for now Cobalt has JED popular mark.
Do not forget to check this wonderful extension with gives you all power of Mighty Extensions but without shortcomings we had.
