    CB Activity 4.0 is ready for download by all paid members

    The wait is over! The totally rewritten and super feature-rich CB Activity 4.0 add-on is here and ready for prime time.

    We have already installed it on our demo site, so feel free to preview it on us before you install it on your website.

    Kyle has already blogged twice about this new release and its new features. Announcements, emotions, places, actions, tags, comments, likes, mentions, links, article discussions, notifications and many more awesome features will make your Community Builder website come alive. From a technical perspective, CB Activity 4.0 is a masterpiece! It looks awesome on all viewing devices (desktops, tablets and smart-phones) and it auto-streams as soon as new happenings take place. And as CB Activity 4.0 is a total rewrite, it has an improved API that can now be taken advantage of by other add-ons.

    This is why along with the new CB Activity 4.0 build, we have also released the following:

    To make things easier to upgrade we have created a single CB Package Builder powered install package (with these new releases and the latest CB) that all paid members (Professional / Developers) can download and install in a single pass. It is highly recommended all 4 are installed at once to ensure CB Activity compatibility between plugins. Additionally as with all major upgrades always backup your site first.

  • Joomla 3.7 is on its way!

     

    Joomla 3.7 Alpha 2 has been released for testing and it has some impressive new features!

    Already since the Alpha 1 release, the 3.7 series has rolled out for testing the new Custom Fields feature and the new URL Routing feature.

    There are two more interesting features worth mentioning in this Alpha 2 build:

    • Multilingual Association Manager
      This allows you to make translations from content into another language using one interface making things simpler for multilanguage websites.
      You can read the detailed tracker description to learn more.

    • Backend Admin Menu Manager
      With this feature you can create and use a custom admin menu that exists beside the preset admin menu. This will make rolling out new backend admin menus easier and the end result should be a much more friendly interface for special administrative groups.
      More information about this can be found in the feature tracker item.

    For a full list of Joomla 3.7 features you can study the 3.7 features tracker list.

    Joomla is asking for our help to test these new features and to get Joomla 3.7 out.

    Community Builder can be freely downloaded by all registered members

     

    We are proud to release Community Builder 2.1.1 with 8 new (minor) features and 21 bug fixes!

    Just one month after our feature rich Community Builder 2.1 release, we are proud to release Community Builder 2.1.1 which is primarily a compatibility, maintenance and security-hardenings release. We are also celebrating our 1234th merge request since CB 2.0. !

    The detailed list of new features and bug fixes is included in our discussion thread. The main features worth mentioning are:

    1. Language override user interface improvements lets you search for language strings and easily create your own override strings.
    2. Updated fontawesome library to 4.7.0 to give you even more icons that you can easily take advantage of on your websites.
    3. Improved PHP 7.1 compatibility - this way you can take advantage of the latest PHP framework.

    CB 2.1.1 further strengthens the legendary security of Community Builder. Third party libraries have been updated (Guzzle, PHPMailer) and additional security-checks have been added. Also the update channel, version checks and the newsfeed now all use https!

    Please see our Security statement on Community Builder 2.1.1 regarding third-party libraries PHPMailer and Guzzle for super-technical details: In short, CB and our CB Add-ons are not vulnerable with default or any reasonably possible settings.

    Of course Community Builder 2.1.1 is fully compatible with Joomla 3.6.5 and can be easily installed over any CB 2.0+ environment for a quick upgrade.

    All Joomlapolis add-ons are CB 2.1.1 compatible and you can see them in action on our updated demo site.

     

     
  • Security statement on Community Builder 2.1.1 regarding third-party libraries PHPMailer and Guzzle

    First of all, Community Builder and our CB Add-ons are not vulnerable to following third-party libraries vulnerabilities, in default or in any reasonable configuration. Additionally, third-party CB add-ons using correctly the CB API should also not be vulnerable through these third-party libraries vulnerabilities.

    The CB team is following security news and Beat is part of the Joomla Security Strike Team (JSST). Thus we are usually aware very early of new vulnerabilities potentially affecting Community Builder or our add-ons. For all vulnerabilities of third-party libraries below, we have usually been aware within hours of the issues, and could each time assess with highest priority that those vulnerabilities could not be exploited through Community Builder or any of our Add-ons.

    The CB Team implements using defensive programming techniques. This means that we often have multiple levels of protections and user-inputed data filterings, handling default cases, and always escaping at the right place, so that security reviews are easy. Also, no code change is made in core CB without peer-review inside the team. As a matter of fact, with CB 2.1.1, we are celebrating the 1234th merge-requests since CB 2.0! Each of those merge requests has been peer-reviewed and security-audited before being added to CB.

    Community Builder 2.1.1 includes the newest PHPMailer 5.2.22 third party emailing library and a security-improved version of Guzzle HTTP/HTTPS requests third-party library.

    As both libraries have experienced security vulnerabilities and fixes lately, CB team is issuing the following security statement on those issues and their non-exploitability in Community Builder.
