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.
