We are happy to announce the availability of new JMailAlerts v2.6.0. JMailAlerts is one of our most popular and FREE extension with 20K downloads and counting.
This release mainly addresses logging in JMailAlerts. Now, the logs are written into where Joomla logs path is configured. Also, email ids in the logs can be masked, giving you more control over sensitive information not being logged into log file. This is not all of it, we have also added an option to specify max log file size for log file. After reaching this size, log file will be rotated.
This release also addresses PHP compatibility issues for 7.0.x-7.2.x. At the time of release, this release works with Joomla 3.8.x and can be run on PHP v5.6.x, v7.0.x, v7.1.x, v7.2.x
With this release, we have also reduced the code footprint for all of the plugins (for plugins with version 2.6.0) by moving lot of common code into the component itself, making it easier to update / create more plugins.
In addition to this, there have been quite a few bug fixes done. For more details, go through the complete changelog for v2.6.0 below.
