We would like to wish all our clients a Happy New Year! We are very happy to announce our first release of the new year. JTicketing 3.3.5 is primarily a bug fix-release for the issues reported by our subscribers.
Besides this, we have also done some improvements in this release. Site administrators now have a configuration to add a pattern for validating attendee’s phone number at the checkout during purchase of tickets for the events.
Joomla’s 16th Birthday was a special one as Joomla 4 release was announced on the same day on August 17th! A big congratulations to all Joomla users, supporters, developers and fans, who never gave up on Joomla and worked hard to help us all reach this important milestone.
We are super pumped to announce the release of Shika 1.5 which brings plenty of interesting features. In this release, you will get a historical data migration tool for course completions down to lesson level which is very useful if you are migrating from a different LMS. Plus we’ve added the ability to extend enrolments with custom fields to serve a variety of use cases like tracking why a training was assigned to someone or track how it was utilized later. With the new Access level support for paid courses, you can now offer different prices to different levels of customers.
As we continue to make com_api the platform of choice to add REST API support to Joomla, we added an interesting feature that makes it very easy to add Social Login to Mobile Apps based on Joomla.
JFBConnect from SourceCoast is one of the easiest to use social login tools. When a recent project called for a seamless social login across web and mobile we had to enhance com_api to natively allow JFBConnect as one of the ways to perform the login.
We are happy that we have yet another feature packed Shika release getting released today! Key highlights are - Paid course report, Tag-based course display, Image field support for the quiz, exercise, and feedback lesson types.
Read on for the complete details of the fantastic features that await you in this upgrade!
