In today’s release, we don’t just have one product update to announce, we’ve got an entire line of updated JomSocial products... and some completely new ones. So grab a cup of coffee, sit back end enjoy the great news.
JomSocial 4.3.1 marks the first bugfix release of the 4.3 series and brings some much needed improvements to existing features. This is a cumulative bugfix release that contains all the bugfixes for confirmed issues reported before January 25th. To see the full list of changes, please visit the changelog page.
JomSocial site has been running on Joomla 2.5 since 2013. I dreaded migrating it to Joomla 3. It’s a complex site. We use a heavily customized Kunena forum and a really old version of DigiStore, a product that we no longer develop ourselves.
Over the last few months, things started to fall apart.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Like Santa and three wise men, we come bearing gifts. JomSocial 4.3 is ready! We spent months improving the great features you’re already using, and we’ve developed a bunch of new ones.
It’s stable, filled with goodies and just works! Take a look at the changelog too.
Two and a half years ago, we declared that we would improve the testing process we use before releasing new versions. It took a lot of work to create that new testing system but we are now collecting the fruit from all that hard labor. The newest versions are going out with a ridiculously small number of bugs, as our open beta bug report forum shows.
So it’s a great pleasure to already be able to announce the official JomSocial 4.3 Release Candidate.
The latest JomSocial release is an important security patch. The patch brings a fix for potential exploits allowing unrestricted access to data in the database. Due to the nature of the vulnerability and in order to protect customer sites, we will not disclose the issue, but we urge you to update the site as soon as possible.
For the full list of other changes, you may refer to the changelog page.
This time around we are giving all our license holders the opportunity to download and experiment with a beta version. So what are you waiting for? It’s awesome, go play with it!
