We have some extremely exciting releases coming up in the next few weeks ;) & JBolo 3.1 is opening up the New Year for us with some most awaited features ! 

So Whats New in JBolo 3.1 ?

EasySocial Integration 

This is easily the most awaited integration for our popular Chat system. Once you install JBolo on a EasySocial site & turn on this integration, JBolo will derive User avatars & friends, Profile linking from EasySocial. There is also an EasySocial App for JBolo to initiate chats from user's profiles. 

We had actually planned to do this release with an awesome (hush hush) integration feature planned & in progress with the StackIdeas team but it was taking a while so we decided to release first & come up with another followup release for this awesome feature later. So look out of the next release!!
