GoodNews - status update

Hi there,

after a long absence, I have now resumed the development of GoodNews. For the upcoming release I will take care of the necessary adjustments for the current MODX versions. The deprecated code parts will be updated and issues that have been pending for some time will be fixed successively.

MODX 3 will also be a major topic!

Please stay tuned and watch this thread for further informations!

Greetings, Martin
