Release highlights

This section briefly explains the most important and non-self-explanatory changes. Please see the changelog below for all changes.

+ Languages quick icon

The Control Panel now has a Languages quick icon which redirects to the Languages download page of www.twentronix.com.

^ Improved Configuration view with tabs

Cookie Confirm's configuration view now has tabs which improves the user experience.

~ Now using the built-in Joomla! extensions updater instead of Live Update to deliver updates (thanks, Nicholas!)

Cookie Confirm can now be updated just like any other Joomla! extension, using the Joomla! extensions update feature. Please see the documentation for more information.

This method IS NOT supported on Joomla! 2.5.18 or earlier and Joomla! versions 3.0.0 up to and including 3.2.0. If you are using these versions you MUST update manually (see the documentation).

On Joomla! 2.5.19 and all later versions in the 2.5.x range (but not Joomla! 3.x or later) you also need the "Installer - Twentronix" plugin to be installed and published on your site. This plugin is automatically installed and published when you install Cookie Confirm on these Joomla! versions. If you are not sure, please go to your site's administrator, click on Extensions, Plug-in Manager and verify that this plugin is installed and published. If this plugin is not installed or not published you will see the updates but you will NOT be able to install them. Instead you will see an error message telling you about a 403 or 404 error message received. If you do not see the plugin on your site please update manually, with the method described in the documentation.

~ Improved versioning of development releases so they can be updated to official versions with the Joomla! extensions updater

The development update stream is not required anymore because development releases can now be updated to stable versions. This is achieved by using (almost fully) semantic versions for development releases. It also prevents you from accidentally 'updating' to older versions when using a developer release.

- Removed development update stream and minimum update stability

This has been removed because it's not supported by the Joomla! extensions updater. If you only want to update to stable versions, then please make sure to check the stability of the version before you update.
