Whats New in 2.4 ?

I have been looking at this version since the beta release & must say that its quite impressive. The added feature list is quite long in this release & the team has touched upon almost all areas & made them better.  Quite some attention has been given to Photo Management in this release.. Features like Geotagging for Photos, Drag & Drop upload, Better Photo Album view & the new Photo slider  go a great way in adding to the user experience.

Activity Stream & comments have quite a few improvements. What i was waiting for most was the ability to add multiple recipients to messages which in my opinion was a let down in earlier releases. Events has been touched up with a Calendar view & better RSVP. P.S. Look out for an exciting announcement about Event ticketing from us in the next week or so ;)

There's quite a lot more in JomSocial 2.4 besides this ! The JomSocial Guys have done a nice blog here about new features in 2.4 that you might want to look at .
