Today, we are pleased to announce the availability of SEBLOD 3.13.0.
Our latest release is mainly about the upcoming Joomla! 3.8 release, but bring a few more stability fixes as well.
No more SEBLOD Admin Menu (on Joomla! 3.8):
As you may know, with Joomla! 3.7 we had the ability to create custom Admin Menu. With Joomla! 3.8 it goes further with the ability to define Admin Menu Presets. SEBLOD 3.13 uses this new capability, and the "old" mod_cck_menu
is now deprecated or even won't be used at all for new installations on Joomla! 3.8. Our "old" module is still included in all 3.13.x packages, but will be removed starting with SEBLOD 3.14.0.
- If you install SEBLOD 3.13 on Joomla! 3.8 the module is not installed, and a native mod_menu is created with SEBLOD Core preset (i.e "Construction").
- If you install SEBLOD 3.13 on Joomla! 3.7 the old module is installed and used.
When your site will be on Joomla! 3.8... and you'll update with an upcoming version of SEBLOD, the old module will be uninstalled, and the native one used (a SEBLOD Core preset, i.e "Construction")
- If you update an existing site (any Joomla! version) with SEBLOD 3.13 and that your initial SEBLOD installation was SEBLOD 3.12.x (or older) the "old" module will NOT be uninstalled, and all existing "old" modules will remain. You will be free to switch manually your "mod_cck_menu" modules to "mod_menu" later on, if needed and if you wish to.
Various presets are available (Add-ons, Apps, Core, Ecommerce).
Other additions and improvements are available from the
As always, a few more updates:
Stay tuned for the next updates.

2/ Update SEBLOD. Feel free to enable the module again.
