Important Notice: AltaUserPoints is a fork of the AlphaUserPoints component originaly developped by Bernard Gilly at Alphaplug.com. It has been forked to save the project: continue distribution, support and software evolution when Bernard decided to retire. Nordmograph (represented by Adrien Roussel ) as an AlphaUserPoints early adopter (since 2008) and one of the most active contributors, decided to fork the project in February 2016 after alphaplug.com went offline and AlphaUserPoints JED entry unpublished. Author has been contacted about the fork project and replyed positively to the idea.The fork is now renamed AltaUserPoints 1.0 and was based on latest AlphaUserPoints 2.0.4 (2015 December 17th).
