Joomla 3.9

As a collaborative community-driven software release, Joomla 3.9 incorporates user feedback gathered through extensive community surveys, Joomla forum posts and feature requests. Joomla has incorporated the latest feedback in Version 3.9 to provide users with a comprehensive ‘Privacy Tool Suite’. This facilitates the compliance of Joomla websites with laws and regulations, most notably GDPR.



Among the new features included are the following, as supplied by Joomla:
·         The Privacy System
Right at the heart of the system’s legal and regulatory capabilities are several powerful subsystems. These help to ensure the compliance of Joomla websites. The enhanced Privacy System also allows consent checkboxes to be displayed on core forms; the export and/or removal of personal data when requested, and the ability to check related capabilities of extensions.
·         The Action Logging System
This system enables one to create an audit-log of website activity performed and can be fine-tuned to the site administrator’s preferences. The system allows for a review of the action log, export and purging of the entries.
·         All-new options to facilitate effective backend content management.
Users can now add notes to articles, filter them, search for a specific article content and load a module by ID into an article. For multilingual sites, there is a new toolbar button to edit multilingual associations. Users also have the opportunity to propagate existing multilingual associations in order to save time.
·         Other frontend changes.
Site admins can now view the intro or full image in their frontend newsflash module, show articles from a specific author, and display tags per language. The custom fields benefit from more flexibility as a result of a new repeatable custom field, and it’s now possible to create alternative layouts. As a bonus, it’s also possible to use Google Invisible reCAPTCHA in the website forms.
