Do more with PHP 7 Support

PHP 7, released in November 2015, will provide a significant performance boost to your website. Many web hosts already provide this as an option in your hosting account and it is highly recommended that you enable it.

Quoting the PHP 7 release note on Zend, “ This is the most important change for PHP since the release of PHP 5 in 2004. … You can expect to see up to 2x faster performance and 50% better memory consumption than PHP 5.6, allowing you to serve more concurrent users without adding any hardware”.

Adding support for PHP 7 has caused a minor backward compatibility break but no major impact is expected from this. You can read more about this change here.

Do more with Update Notifications via Email

Keeping Joomla! up to date is essential to maintain security and stability. Now your Joomla! website will check for the availability of new Joomla! versions and when one is found it will send the Super Users on the site an email notification.

Do more with System Information Export

When you need support you will often be asked to provide your full system information. Now all the required information is just one click away and free of any sensitive information.

Do more with Anonymised System Data

In order to better understand our install base and end user environments, this plugin has been created to send some stats back to a Joomla! controlled central server. The plugin will anonymously collect only the PHP, Database Type and Version and Joomla! Version a site is running. No identifying data is captured at any point and you can see exactly what information is being sent in the plugin configuration. This will help us to make more informed decisions about which platforms we need to support, minimum version requirements, the pace at which we can encourage people to upgrade, etc.

The privacy of all Joomla! users is important to us and we want to allay any fears that we are collecting personally identifying information. The source code for both the plugin and the server code that gathers the data can be seen in our GitHub repositories https://github.com/joomla-extensions/jstats-server and https://github.com/joomla-extensions/jstats-plugin. Only statistical results extracted from the data will be published on the developer.joomla.org website.

Easier Customisation of Protostar Template

Now you can safely customise the Protostar template styling using your own user.css file. Any changes made to this file will not be overwritten on an update so you don’t have to worry about losing your changes.

Editor Buttons Now Added to the Toolbar

You no longer need to scroll down the page to find the “readmore” or “insert image” buttons. Editor extension buttons that used to be placed below the text area can now be found in the toolbar where they belong.

Content Status Reports

The Category Manager now displays the number of published, unpublished and trashed articles in every category. This will make managing the structure of your site easier and help to find unused categories etc.
