In my last blog post, I explained how we had to give up our heavily hacked Kunena forum in order to migrate JomSocial.com to the new site. If you ever used our previous forum, you know it had some pretty cool features:
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.
