Joomla!Joomla 3.0 is coming in late September, and we've already heard a few users asking about when JFBConnect, the Facebook for Joomla extension, and JLinked, LinkedIn for Joomla, will support the newest release of our favorite CMS! As with all Joomla releases, we completely plan to support J3.0. At the same time, Joomla 1.5, while well loved, will be unsupported by Joomla.org once J3.0 is available. Due to the overwhelming transition to Joomla 2.5, we will be discontinuing development and support for the J1.5 series shortly.

Read on to understand when the right version for your needs will be available along with an idea of what will be in each reelase.

We've recently heard some reports from users about the Facebook Invite Friends feature no longer working on some Joomla sites. If your Facebook Invite Friends features has stopped working, please ensure you have upgraded to JFBConnect's newer Facebook Request system which was introducted in January this year with version 4.1.

Using Facebook to let your users invite their friends to your site can be an invaluable tool to grow your site quickly. Since it uses social sharing, it's proven that these methods of engagement have a higher click-through rate and are overall higher quality than many other promotional campaigns. Above all, using the Facebook invitation system is free!

A new version of JFBConnect was just posted with some bug-fixes. This release fixes a few permission request issues in uncommon cases as well as other minor updates and improvements. There were no security related issues in this release. Of course, we take security extremely seriously and have never had to have a security release, in case you were curious.

For more information on the v4.2.3 update, please see the changelog.

Less than 6 months ago, we launched JLinked, the most robust LinkedIn extension available for Joomla, compatible with JomSocial, Community Builder and multiple other extensions. Today, we release the 2nd large update to that release, solidifying it's robust feature-set and tightening up the integration with the most popular Facebook integration extension, JFBConnect.

This release's main features are an update to allow one-click updating, courtesy of Akeeba's release system, and lots of minor feature improvements and bug-fixes. For a full list of changes, see the JLinked Changelog.
