  • Joomla! 3.4.3 Released

    Joomla! 3.4 - Do More

    Joomla 3.4.3 is now available. This is a maintenance release for the Joomla 3 series. We strongly encourage you update your sites.

    Version 3.4.3 addresses a few issues:

    • The renaming of the ClassLoader.php file to classloader.php caused issues which in some isolated cases even broke the CMS.
    • When creating menus of type Smart Search or contact list for 3.4.2 invalid field warnings were displayed when trying to save.
    • The option to disable the count-join in JCategories is permanently enabled on multilingual sites, making extensions that don't use this feature and for example don't have a catid field in their table, fail.
    • Module, Article and Category creation applies a wrong default values for the access level. Instead of the one from the global configuration it just takes none, and thus the first in the list is selected (Guest).
    • The batch model cut the dropdown so you can’t access all items there
    • On the batch model we had some kind of scrollbar flashing

     

    Thanks to the hard work of 7 different volunteer contributors, 9 bugs have also been resolved with the 3.4.3 release of the Joomla . See the list of fixed GitHub issues for details of the tracker items fixed.

    For known issues with the 3.4.3 release, see the Version 3.4.3 FAQ in the documentation site.

    The Production Leadership Team's goal is to continue to provide regular, frequent updates to the Joomla community. Learn more about Joomla! development at the Joomla! Developer Network.
