A download is not available for this package from the Zikula website.
Comment 3 Simon Birtwistle 2009-06-16 08:01:27 EDT
We use the SVN version as prior releases are not compatible with Zikula 1.1.  I can ask the author to make a release, however he may not have the time at the moment as he's busy with a number of other tasks.

It would be quicker to build a package against revision 210 of SVN:

JS-TreeMenu, from their website:

Comment 7 John (J5) Palmieri 2009-08-03 16:42:16 EDT
Highslide JS is just another image gallery lightbox. 

JW FLV Player should be easy to replace with and move to using the video tag.  Since we should be uploading ogg this means that we will get native ogg support depending on how the component uses the player.  Which brings me to a question.  Does anyone have these components running somewhere so I can see how they utilize the javascript libraries?

Tree menus should be easy to rewrite but I'm not sure if they are the best UI elements out there.  I would have to see this component in action.
Comment 8 John (J5) Palmieri 2009-08-03 16:52:07 EDT
Javascript side of the cropper should be easy to replace with this mit licensed cropper:
Comment 9 John (J5) Palmieri 2009-08-03 17:00:53 EDT
BTW The current cropper is the new/simplified BSD license (GPL Compatible) or at least that is what he links to but the copyright notice seems to add some clauses.  I would run it through legal and contact him.
Comment 10 John (J5) Palmieri 2009-08-03 17:05:26 EDT
Actually, looking at the OSI page for the BSD license "All rights reserved" is clearly the correct verbiage. JavaScript Image Cropper UI has the OSI approved BSD license copied verbatim so no issue there.
Comment 11 2009-10-30 13:21:48 EDT
Any update on this?
Comment 12 Paul W. Frields 2009-10-30 14:00:37 EDT
Eric, Mel,

This should go on a list of issues to work with Simon on at the FUDCon Toronto 2009 event.
Comment 13 itbegins 2009-12-07 13:20:46 EST
I'm thinking we just purge the badly licensed stuff from the package and see how far we get.  This module does a lot of different stuff, and we'll only be using a small subset of the features on Fedora sites.  I don't know if there's a better short term solution to these problems.
Comment 14 2009-12-07 16:52:03 EST
So it appears that these are the pieces that need to be removed:

*Highslide JS                  
        License: Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License (

*JavaScript Image Cropper UI   
        Copyright (c) 2006, David Spurr (
        All rights reserved.

*JW FLV Player                 
        License: Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.0 License (

So if we can just yank those pieces out then we should be good to go.  Everything else is LGPL or GPL+.
Comment 15 itbegins 2010-01-09 06:49:26 EST
A new version of MediaAttached has been released by the developers.  Version 1.1 solves all the licensing issues referenced in this ticket :)  See for more info.
