Joomla 3.3 Beta 2 Released


Joomla 3.3 is scheduled to be released next week on April 22nd, 2014. It is being refered to as the "Do more" release.

We have been testing Community Builder 1.9.1 against the latest available Joomla 3.3 Beta 2 release and our initial feedback is that there are no compatibility issues.

In addition to new features, Joomla 3.3 has an important security enhancement and a related technical requirement change: PHP 5.3.10 or newer is now required.

The main features/changes of Joomla 3.3 are:

  • PHP 5.3.10 and above is now required
  • stronger password hashing storage
  • microdata implementation for Joomla content opens the door to better search engine experience
  • Replaces MooTools based JavaScript with jQuery equivalents
  • new cloud storage API
