Updates available for our Joomla extensions

We spent the week addressing minor teething issues and including several new functionality across all of our extensions. I would also like to take this opportunity to stress out that if you are still on Joomla 3.7.0, please update immediately! I have been troubleshooting several sites and noticed that some of these sites are still running on Joomla 3.7.0. 

In case you missed out on the announcement that was posted yesterday, the release of Joomla 3.7.1 addresses a critical security vulnerability and several other bug fixes.

There are quite a number of changes for me to pen these changes on the post but I have cherry picked some of these new cool functionality below:

Komento 3.0.6

The last update for Komento was published on 2nd of March 2017 and it has been pretty stable since then. There are some minor annoying issues and some new features which we have thrown in. Some of the changes includes:

  • Hikashop Integrations. We have added integrations with Hikashop and as soon as they release a newer version of Hikashop, you will be able to pick Komento from their settings.
  • Addressed issues with W3C validation.
  • BBCode library will no longer get rendered if it is not in use.
