I had no feedback from you for the last few days so I thought everything was working fine.
The permanent fix is to be released tomorrow. In the meantime, the workaround I suggested in one of my replies to your support request is still valid.
As for ionCube - this messages you get has nothing to do with it. Believe me, if it was possible to work without ionCube we woudnt use it. It's not that we love ionCube, it's just necessary. You can see our post
in the Joomla forums on that topic and I hope you will understand our situation. As a matter of fact, soon we will release GPL versions of some of our products. They will not be as advanced as our full versions but will probably be enough for many Joomla users.
