Rewritten on top of the FOF 3.0 framework. This release is based on our brand new FOF 3.0 framework, delivering significant performance improvements and stability.
This is a BETA version. While it has been extensively tested we don't recommend our users using it on production sites without first evaluating it on a test site. You can create a test site using our free of charge Akeeba Backup Core site backup software.
We appreciate you filing bug reports until July 30th, 2015 when the beta period is scheduled to be over. We need your feedback. If any bugs you've discovered are not reported to us the chances are we are not aware of them either and they'll still be present in the stable release. Report any issues you encounter and we promise to fix them promptly, as always!
This version requires PHP 5.3.10+, 5.4 (recommended), 5.5 or 5.6. The rationale behind this is explained in our statement of mid-February 2013. It won't install on hosts running PHP 5.3.09 or earlier, including PHP 5.2, 5.1, 5.0 and all 4.x versions. Moreover, this release will only work on Joomla! 3.4 and later. We strongly recommend using the latest Joomla! 3.x version released by the Joomla! Project.
WARNING! Our support for PHP 5.3 will cease anytime before August 2015 without any prior warning, as we announced in April 2015.
