Patch for 3.3.1

Joomla! 3.3.1 changed some of the patched code, so the patches from 3.3.0 won't work with 3.3.1. Existing users need to ask for the new version (for free, as usually).

VividCortex review

EDIT: Baron Schwartz kindly asked me to remove this blog post. I'm not going to do this, but I agree it was too harsh, it's my fault I didn't read the terms of service I was going to review.

Back story: I reviewed free trial of a service. The legal document I accepted when registering did not allow trial users to publish their reviews. They contacted me about it and you can see my original reaction below. I don't think this is the best way to promote a product, but it's just my personal opinion, and Baron - being an experienced blogger - claims it's normal practice.

Remember, kids: use only Free Software if you don't want any trouble!

There was a 3 pages long VividCortex review here, but they said writing a public review violates their ToS unless they accept it. If they don't want free publicity, I don't care and wish them all the best promoting their product this way.
