Today, 30th October 2018, the Joomla project released Joomla 3.9, a major version release that involves a number of important new features.
The most prominent new feature is the Privacy Suite, introduced to make Joomla GDPR compliant from the outset. This is a major advance with regard to easily managing your core forms to request consent before collecting any personal data.
A number of other features have been introduced including:
- searchable content notes in admin
- search by article content
- repeatable custom fields and custom layouts
There are also updates for multilingual sites and number of other smaller improvements.
