I'm loving the latest generation of this Powerful CCK! Completely re-written for Joomla! 2.5 the integration is clean and seamless. Speaking as a long term user the continuous development and improvements has resulted in a refined solution balancing ease of use with features to keep the power users amongst us happy. Colbalt allows me to speed up my development cycle whilst retaining functionality and increasing user interaction.

By combining Colbalt with Emerald, the membership component also from MintJoomla I have a solution that improves on all of the best features from the previous MightyExtensions Components.

Colbalt is a fully blown CCK and as such is not for newbies who are probably better off sticking to the excellent but non-comparable K2. However if you have a bit of web dev experience with Joomla! then I recommend you give Colbalt a try.

The new pricing structure means the core Component, Plugins and Modules will always be free, allowing me to pay for only the premium features I need. The good news is that licenses are no longer restricted by domain and premium purchases can be used on infinte domains.

I believe that Joomla! 2.5.x has been a important milestone for the Joomla! community and a big step forward. Along with the recently announced roadmap for Colbat 8 with exciting new Enterprise features the future is looking very promising.
