Blog 1.0.1 released

Blog Magento ExtensionDue to the lack of activity in this highly demanded extension development, aheadWorks has agreed with the owner and previous developer lazzymonk on moving the ownership rights to our company.

We are already well known in modules development sphere and decided to take our chance to make a valuable contribution to the community.

So we must answer the first question that could arise immediately – yes, the extension continues to be free and open source despite it changes its license and owner.

We’ll try to dedicate more efforts to the development to make this extension better and better and satisfy growing needs of the community.

N. 1 extension. I'm waiting for other wonderful extensions. Is there a transfer script from wordpress to this blog?
