Joomla 3.9.0 Released

What’s new in Joomla 3.9?

Here are just some of the new features …

The Privacy Tool Suite by Joomla

  • User Consents - Make light work of data privacy requirements
    Need users to consent to your privacy policy and/or terms and conditions? With Joomla 3.9, it’s all handled automatically. Simply and easily set up your core forms to request consent before collecting any personal data.
    You can also set up a time-based privacy consent expiration. The system will let you know if and when you need to contact your users to renew consent.
    Track user consents, manage site policy changes and much more besides, all with a glance at your dashboard.

  • User information requests? Easy-peasy
    Track and manage information access or removal requests from your users, seamlessly. Once a request is made, just log in, export their data and/or remove them.
    User data removal requests are all handled automatically, with all personal data anonymized without you needing to lift a finger.
    Never forget a request again. Just set Joomla 3.9 to remind you.

  • Extension Capabilities - Put your users in the picture when it comes to privacy...
    Extension developer – give your potential users a helping hand, by making it clear what data your extension collects. When you want to report functionality in your extensions that may need privacy consideration, simply use the new Plugin Event (onPrivacyCollectAdminCapabilities).
    With this simple action, your users gain a clear understanding of your extension, and whether they’ll need to amend their own documentation, such as their privacy policy or terms of service.

  • User Actions Log - Know who’s done what, and when
    Want to know what administrative actions have been performed on your site? Thanks to Joomla 3.9, Super Users can easily see which user did what, and when. And it also works with supported extensions! Review the action log, export it and purge the entries. You’ll never miss a trick, thanks to the latest actions module that can be added to your control panel.
    Need more? Then enable the new log rotation plugin – this will allow you to rotate and remove your log files.
