Joomla 4.3 is one step closer
We can already download the first release candidate of Joomla 4.3. A version with interesting usability improvements compared to Joomla 4.2 and that brings guided tours as the most outstanding functionality. Remember that this version is only for testing and should not be used in production. You know, the experiments at home and with soda...
VirtueMart announces that automatic updates will be paid
In a note on their blog, VirtueMart announces that the next one-click updates will only be available to subscribers. The code to make the updates will be available through their SVN repository and they will also publish a tutorial so that anyone with enough time and desire can update to the latest versions. With this change, it is intended to make the development of the extension more sustainable.
