I really loved to work with Fox Contact and placed it in all of my projects which are 150+ in the meantime.

This is now taking revenge :(
  • NO updates since more than 2 years
  • Massive Spamming-attacks on Fox forms
  • No more answers from the support

So sad to see this project dying :(

As it's already flaged in the JED for not being updated since 2+ years I'll have to switch to another component now.

Ciao Fox

I get the feeling that they are just milking whatever they can.

Such a great project and abandoned.

I wondered the same as updates seemed to stop coming.
As nobody has denied or confirmed, assuming this is the case.

Was wondering if security flaws were going to be not addressed anymore.

Anybody know of a good substitute?

I did some research. Demi Palma literally cannot be found. Is not responsive in Social Media. The fox.ra.it website hasn't been update and is in Joomla version 3.9.11 from August 2019.

As of 2020 his girl friend was still somehow active in sending invoices out, but that is pretty much all the level of involvement from their side which I could observe until now.

Even-though they keep the website alive to milk the proceeds and leave you hanging with a product that is no langer maintained.

My conclusion: Yes the project is dead.

Anyone want to take on this project and continue it? Everything is under GNU/GPL 3 license.

Well, I was already asked several times to fork this extension and add it to my portfolio.

I need to think about it whether it is worth it or I should write such a component from scratch... :-)

Edit:

Forget what I said above. All the JavaScript files for the backend are minified and encrypted. It makes no sense to fork this extension as long as I don't have access to the original files in raw format.

Demis, if you read this and want your extension to experience a second birth, then please contact me via email and send me the unencrypted JavaScript files.

Thanks!
