JomSocial 4.2.2 Is Out!
JomSocial 4.2.2 is mostly a bugfix release squishing all the bugs found since the previous version. It also introduces a new feature allowing administrators to require repeating the email address during the registration process. To see the list of all changes, visit our changelog page.
Admins can now moderate the registration flow, enabling a “Repeat email” field during the registration process.
In order not to disturb existing registration flows, this option is disabled by default. You will need to enable it first in order to use it
