JomSocial 3.2.0.4 With a Fix to Facebook Connect Issue

Joomla, JomSocial, Facebook connect

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 3.2.0.3 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.
