jqGrid is now Guriddo!

jqGrid is now Guriddo!

There have been a lot of changes in Trirand over the last month that made me reconsider our work. It has been seven and a half years since we have launched the first version of jqGrid Java Script. From the very beginning jqGrid was open source and had the exceptionally liberal MIT license. That enabled many people to participate in the project development and in the same time, a lot of people used it commercially.

The numerous visits and comments, improvements and amendments serve as testament that jqGrid JavaScript is an interesting and promising project and yet we are not able to fulfill completely the users’ needs. Therefore, I decided that the Trirand team should focus exclusively on this project, as well as on the server PHP component.
In order to achieve this, we have to make some significant changes:

  • jqGrid JavaScript shall change its license from MIT/GPL 2 to Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 License. This means that the code can be seen by everyone but in order to use it commercially, the relevant license has to be paid.
  • The name will be changed – from now on the new name of the project shall be Guriddo jqGrid JavaScript.
  • In order to synchronize these operations, we created the new website guriddo.net. This website shall serve Guriddo jqGrid Java Script and the guriddo PHP components.
  • The existing trirand.net shall serve and develop ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC jqGrid components as a separate subdivision.
  • All the versions of jqGrid to 4.7 (included) are under MIT/GPL v2.0 licenses and they can be used under these licenses.

Any and all existing clients of the PHP component with a valid license shall be served by gurrido.net. All users from http://trirand.com along with the forum are transferred to the new website. The transfer was not an easy feat, so we would like to apologize in advance for any irregularities. As of now trirand.com shall remain as is, as a learning experience. We hope that with this new beginning, we will be able to make Guriddo jqGrid one of the best grid components.

Sincerely Yours,
Tony Tomov

    It would be interesting to know the source of the new name Guriddo. It sounds for me like Japanese word グリッド, which means grid, but written in Latin alphabet (Rōmaji) instead of Katakana. What is the etymology of the word Guriddo?

    Hello Oleg, This is correct. The etymology comes from the Japanese word グリッド (grid), but written in Latin. Regards Tony

    The same apply for the スイート (Suito) which means Suite

    i get a bug in JqGrid 5.5.0 version. if i try in the android view, the overflow-x is slower than i used a 5.3.0 version. but it's only in android view, if i try in desktop view, it's no problem. these bugs it happens to version above 5.4.0. if i used under JqGrid 5.4.0 version, the overflow-x, these bugs don't exist. Maybe you can help me about these bugs, because the version 5.5.0 it's very important to me. if you want a example of these bugs, i'll give you an example
