Joomla! Experience Team (Crystal Dionysopoulos)

  • Userbit, the site we use for research analysis, has granted us access to their beta Zapier integration.
    • This will make it easier to do things like add survey responses as they come in from Google Forms, and remove a significant bottleneck in the process.
    • If we enable a Mattermost integration with Zapier, this also means we could post updates to channels as research insights are published. Is enabling Zapier a possibility?

Security Strike Team (David Jardin)

  • 4.3.2 released

CMS Release Team (Sigrid Gramlinger)

  • Thanks everyone for the releases and all testing!

Release Managers (Harald, Niels, Olivier, SD, Roland, Franciska, Tobias, Llewellyn)

Release Manager 5.0 (Harald Leithner, Niels Braczek):

  • 5.0.0 alpha 1 release
  • Removing a plugin would be a BC break. As we promised to not break anything in 5.0 without a motion we would like to get a vote on the “Removal of the Scheduler (Task) Demo plugin in 5.0” as the plugin has no real function (and is also not best practice).

Release Manager 4.4 (Allon Moritz, Martin Kopp):

  • 4.4.0 alpha 1 release

Release Lead 4.3 (Olivier Buisard, Shirielle “SD” Williams):

  • 4.3.2 release with security patches. BIG thank you to the Security Strike team for communication and help provided in getting the release ready.

  • We would like to add PHP 8.1 to the Joomla 3.10.11 images (future)
