JomSocial 3 RC 2 Is Here!

JomSocial RC2 is ready

It’s been two weeks since we released RC1 — and as promised, we’re now ready to release RC2!
This version brings us a lot closer to a stable release of JomSocial 3.

What’s New in RC2?

Tooltips on the backend

Every field on the backend now has a tooltip

Since taking over JomSocial in January 2013, I’ve wanted to enhance the documentation to make the extension easier for customers to use.
We’ve already added video tutorials and a comprehensive wiki. Now we’ve added an explanatory tooltip to every single field on the backend. Hover over the dashed line on the field’s label, and you’ll see exactly what it does. This week we will be re-writing many of the tooltips to make them more clear and user-friendly.
The help you need will always be right at your fingertips!

Conflicts with 3rd Party Extensions

During beta testing our testers have found some conflicts with 3rd party extensions.If you're using Joomlart, Rockettheme or Gavick template, you'd want to read this article for a description of the conflict and the status of resolution. We also found conflicts with 3rd party extensions. Read about it here.
