The Components menu item would sometimes disappear from the administrator back-end. We now trained it better so it will obey when we tell them to "Stay!".
Auto-replies would be sent repeatedly to the same ticket every time the client replied. We have disciplined the misbehaving robot and it will now only reply once per ticket.
Canned Replies would appear out of order in the front-end. Apparently most of you didn't appreciate the playful hide-and-seek mood of this bug... er... unexpected feature. Now all canned replies will appear in the sort order you've defined in the back-end of the component.
The following highlights refer to the entire 2.2.x release branch.
Work around Joomla 3.5/3.6 mail issues. If your site's Email From address in Global Configuration or your user's email address were malformed Joomla would crash when trying to send out emails. This could result in ticket/reply creation by email not working among other things. This is a backwards incompatible change in Joomla 3.5 and later that we have already reported to Joomla but they decided not to revert it. Therefore we are now working around it.
Small new features:
This version requires PHP 5.4.0 or later including 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 or 7.0. PHP 5.3 is no longer supported. We strongly advise you to use PHP 5.6 or 7.0. Support for older versions of PHP will be dropped in the next few months.
Joomla! 3.x up to 3.4 does NOT run on PHP 7.0. We only support using our software on PHP 7.0 with Joomla! 3.5.
This version of our software can be installed on Joomla! 3.4.x, 3.5.x or 3.6.x. It is not compatible with end-of-life Joomla! 1.x, 2.5, or 3.0 to 3.3 releases (inclusive). If you are using an old Joomla! version please upgrade to the latest Joomla! 3 version available from Joomla.org.
