Joomla releases 3.6.3 – hold onto your hats

In Joomla News by baboo

Joomla 3.6.3 is now officially released. One of the features is particular nice (if you make a mistake) there is now an option for reinstalling Joomla’s core files at the click of a button, overwriting any modified file(s) and reverting them back to the default. This is particular useful when developing.

Joomla! 3.6 contains a lot of UX improvements. Now you can find your modules faster, have tasks done by dropdown, improved user management all round, which is great for those sites that have tons of articles and modules.

It also incorporates a new option to show all items from all menus gives you a quick overview of what is displayed where on your website. It has never been easier to spot duplicated links, missing menu items or just get an overview of every menu on your site. For large sites this is fantastic and one feature I’m going to love.

When should you upgrade your Joomla site?

This is always a tricky one, with every major release there are always bugs, so my advice is to wait at least a month, unless the new features out way your nervousness.
