We are extremely sorry for the long silence on our end. We are neck deep currently in working on various product releases so the Blogs & Newsletters had dried up a bit. 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 ?
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!!
Now the admins can choose which Joomla Access levels will have access to the chat feature. Do you want to restrict the chat feature to Paying members? Now you can ! Just integrate Payplans or Akeeba Subs to add users to a Joomla user group on Payment & you are done!
Chat Opt Out & user Blocking
Now users can choose to opt out of Chat & also block specific users from contacting them.
Besides these issues, we have fixed quite a few bugs & conflicts & have a brand new chat settings view ! Read on for the full release note & Upgrade Instructions
