The 2.5.1 version adds a few small features that have been requested recently, particularly the setLimit parameter which now allows you to limit the number of files retrieved for each category.

This release also includes a separate version for Joomla 1.5 that has been updated with some new features (like the Submit File button for each category, along with the new features mentioned below) that had been added to the Joomla 2.5 version, so if you're still using Joomla 1.5, please grab DOCman List 1.5.10 from the Downloads page :-).

Note: Please install Customized System SEF Plugin

When using DOCman List there is a high probability that you will cause Joomla's default System SEF Plugin to break, because of the regular expressions and error handling it uses. This will result in a WSOD (White Screen of Death) with no apparent reason/cause. The solution is to download and install (FREE) the Updated System SEF Plugins (available for Joomla 1.5 and 1.7) from the Downloads area.
