JomSocial 2.6.3 released, the last of 2.6 branch

With the imminent release of JomSocial 2.8, we are happy to announce the immediate availability of JomSocial 2.6.3.

This version will be the last of JomSocial 2.6 branch, resolving a number of minor updates in JomSocial core and a single important update for Facebook Connect. This update is to keep up with Facebook's latest breaking changes on 6th December as announced in Facebook Developer Blog. A new security restrictions for OAuth authorization prevented JomSocial from retrieving user status without updating to the latest specification. A patch for this FBC has already been released in our Forum but has now been superceeded with this release of JomSocial 2.6.3

To upgrade to the latest JomSocial 2.6.3 version, you have two choices. The simplest and most recommended option is to uninstall older version and install the latest package.

For more experienced users and for those who have customized JomSocial with your own set of modifications, you may be interested with our upgrade patches, available in our Bugfixes and Upgrade patches forum.
