The Joomla 3.4 release introduces the following key new features:
Joomla 3.4 is a minor version that preserves compatibility and should in most cases be a simple and easy upgrade.
To upgrade from Joomla 2.5/3.3 to Joomla 3.4 you can use the built-in Joomla update functionality but first make sure that all your installed extensions and templates are compatible. If you are updating form Joomla 2.5 then our Migrating from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3 tutorial is a great resource for your upgrade project. Updating from Joomla 3.3 to 3.4 is simple and easy - just like upgrading from any Joomla 3.3.x release to 3.3.x+1. As always, start the process by taking a - just-in-case - full backup
Community Builder 2.0.7 addresses 6 minor identified bugs (see discusson on forum for details), of which one fixes the installation of CB as an upgrade on the new Joomla 3.4 release, which introduced an additional check on the package.
To upgrade to CB 2.0.7 all you need to do is use the Joomla Extensions Update functionality or simply download the CB 2.0.7 package and install. You can do this before or after your Joomla 3.4 upgrade.
Paid members can download CB Gallery 1.0.2 from the Advanced Download area
The new CB Gallery add-on for CB 2.0.6+ is here and it supports photos, files, videos and music media items.
Your users will just love the new look and feel as they will be able to organize all their multimedia content on the 4 new user profile tabs (Photos, Files, Videos, Music). Each tab can have unlimited albums and users can easily organize their content giving them distinctive titles and descriptions. Plus everything works great on all viewing devices (desktop, tablets and mobile phones).
Here is a list of key features available:
Here is a sample screenshot of what your users can expect from a video folder album.
A file folder album lets your users upload their files and share them with other users.
Your users will be able to create unlimited music albums on their profile pages.

When you install CB Gallery for the first time on your CB 2.0.6+ website it will automatically detect and migrate all CB Profile Gallery items that finds. This way your user uploads will remain intact in this new super-clean environment.
