com_xbfilms v0.5.3 (Release Candidate 4) 
14th March 2021  

xbfilms filmsxbFilms is an xbCulture family component for cataloguing films you have seen and reviews of them. Version 0.5.3 introduces a couple of new admin features and a host of tidying up. 

It comes as a package with a supporting component, xbPeople, for administration of people and characters which is common to all xbCulture components.

The primary intended user is someone wanting to keep a record of films they have seen with a reminder of the plot and what their reaction was.  

com_xbbooks v0.6.8 (Release Candidate 2) 
29th January 2021  

xbBooks is a component for cataloguing books you have read and reviews of them. Version 0.6.8 is the current release candidate, it should still really not be used on production sites (although I am ;-) ). The functionality for v1.0 stable Release is all in place, albeit with plenty of rough edges and room for improvements.

It started out as I needed something to replace a flat-file database I had been using to save details of books I read and short reviews/comments. Previous to that I had been using a simple spreadsheet and originally an paper file.

PD-Addon is an extension to the PhocaDownload (PD) component. It is only of any use if you have PhocaDownload installed on your site.  

It adds two new elements to the PhocaDownload data - a 'slug' or short description for the files and categories for the tags. Three new Admin views are provided - a tag editor, a tag category editor, and an improved file list view. 

com_xbartman v1.0.0.0 
31st January 2019 

xbArtMan is a component to provide some additional tools for backend administration of Joomla content. Initially it focuses on three areas that I have had difficulty with - seeing what tags are assigned to which articles, seeing what links are embedded in articles and defined as related item links (and checking that they are valid), and seeing what images are used in which articles.
