Goodbye Joomla!

First of all I want to say 'Thank you!' to all my supporters, customers and all people who have used my extensions! Thanks for the motivation to work on these projects. It made a lot of fun and gave me a lot of knowledge which I wouldn't have learned without you. Furthermore I made my first steps in the World Wide Web and experienced how fast a small idea can grow. I really loved the work and I hope that you enjoyed my extensions. Thank you for the past five years! :)

Unfortunately I’m unable to continue my work with Joomla and this community. Since mid-2014 I started missing some emails or forum posts and I slowly realized that I can’t keep up the energy that I invested in the first years of I’m very sorry for all the emails I didn’t respond/read in the past time. Some people have really invested time and effort to send me detailed bug reports and project plans but most of them were lost in all the annoying emails of people who failed to read the forum. Also, I've started my studies in computer science which kept stressing me more than I thought. I know that it is no excuse that I stopped responding to emails but I hope that some of you are able to understand my situation.

As it goes I kept pushing the decision further and further and I hoped that I will, someday, continue my work. Today, I decided to officially close this section of my life and I need to say ‘Goodbye Joomla!’.

Best Regards and many thanks for your trust!
