Our Automation Team has been working hard to create automated test cases for JomSocial. Over the last six months they’ve created hundreds of tests that run constantly on the latest builds of JomSocial. They run both regular tests to find bugs as well as bug-specific tests to ensure that old bugs don’t come back. You can read more about Automated Testing here.
We've almost finished JomSocial 3.2.1. As we add the final touches, we're releasing an open beta. Previous releases have had closed beta testing programs but this this time if you have an active license, you have 3.2.1 Beta access.

Earlier this year I told you about our plan to automate our testing using Webdriver. The aim was to be able to run hundreds of tests with just one click. It's been quite an undertaking — but it was worth it. After a lot of coding and too much coffee, we can now say that automated testing is go!
JomSocial 126.96.36.199 is out! It's a special bug-squasher edition. We came down hard on all the little bugs that people mentioned on our forum and made sure that none was left alive. The result is the most stable version of JomSocial yet. Check out the changelog for a list of all the bug fixes and new features.
Recently, we told you about our new JomSocial video course. In 50 short video clips, you can learn everything you need to know about JomSocial. Watch the videos, take the quizzes, complete the final exam — and you'll be officially “JomSocial Certified.”

The end of Joomla 2.5's life-cycle is coming soon. At the close of 2014, the official Joomla core team will no longer support or manage Joomla 2.5.
At JomSocial we always strive to be on the cutting edge of development and design. So when we started planning version 3.3, which is mostly about a fantastic, new design, we realized that continue to support IE8 would be tremendously limiting.
As the owner of JomSocial I see a lot of awesome communities. They cover a range of topics from sci-fi geeks and gamers to musicians and hockey players. I am constantly amazed at what people have achieved with JomSocial and I often wonder how they got started. How did they get their first members? How do they persuade people to be more active, contribute, comment and post?
A big concern since iJoomla took over the JomSocial project has been customer service. The vast majority of our customers are very happy but when issues have arisen, some customers haven’t always received the quality of service we want to provide.
We had a busy week at JomSocial. First, Joomla released version 3.3 and lots of customers were fast to upgrade, many without even knowing they were doing so (see my previous post). This Joomla version created a few new issues around user login/sessions in not only JomSocial but also Guru, Ad Agency and Publisher, so it’s probable that many other Joomla extensions are affected by this version.
We quickly released a new version 188.8.131.52 with a fix to this issue but then the next day, customers started reporting a problem with Facebook Connect. At first we thought it was a result of the changes we made but then we found that Facebook API itself was modified and created this problem. This issue was tricky because they simply stopped supporting certain function so we had to find a way around it, and so we did.
Joomla! 3.3 has just been released and a few JomSocial customers have already reported a bug. They found that some JomSocial users were being logged out. This conflict affected almost every aspect of JomSocial and made it unusable.
Our team got to work immediately and squished the bug. The fix is now available on version 184.108.40.206.
The highly anticipated JomSocial 3.2, stable release is here!
It took us three-and-a-half months to develop and another month to find and squish all the bugs… but boy, was it worth it!
Our own community uses the latest version and we’re really grateful to everyone who visited and made comments and suggestions. We read all the comments we received and they did help us to correct bugs and make improvements. A special thanks goes to our awesome beta testers.
