This is a feature release of Kickstart, introducing new features and fixing known issues.
Please note that PHP 5.3.1 or later is required to run this version of Kickstart.
Import from URL. You can import backup archives from any directly accessible HTTP/HTTPS URL.
Install Joomla!. You can use the Import from URL feature to install Joomla!. There is a handy button which automatically fills in the download URL of the latest Joomla! version for you.
Hybrid restoration engine. Writes files directly, uses FTP if direct file write fails. This is extremely handy when restoring over existing sites on shared hosting where files are owned by different system user accounts.
This is a maintenance release for Kickstart, our backup archive extraction tool. All users are kindly requested to upgrade.
This version of Kickstart addresses known issues with Internet Explorer 8 and lower. When an unsupported version of this browser is detected a message is shown to warn the user that they cannot proceed with using the Kickstart script.
This version addresses an issue with Akeeba Kickstart Professional when importing files from Amazon S3. If the size of any part file was less than 1Mb the import would fail. If you are not affected by this issue or you are not using Akeeba Kickstart Professional it's not necessary to upgrade.
# Multipart S3 import would fail when the part size was less than 1Mb
This release addresses some known issues with Akeeba Kickstart Professional and Amazon S3 on servers lacking a server-wide CA certificate cache.
Error messages from S3 would not show up in the interface, making error resolution impossible
The only changes in this release are minor layout issues (missin padding), as a missing link to the troubleshooting documentation. Really, that's all. No other changes have been made. Kickstart is rock solid.
This version of Kickstart addresses two minor bugs with permissions handling. Moreover, Kickstart is now self-documenting and can check for updates to itself.
We urge all users to upgrade to Kickstart 3.3.2 at their earliest convenience. Starting from this release, all previous versions of Kickstart up to and including 3.3.1 are no longer supported.
Kickstart is now self-documenting; there are no excuses for not reading the documentation any more ;)
Kickstart will only attempt to change directory permissions if the directory is unwritable
Kickstart changes the permissions of the web root to 0755
