Joomla 3.5 is here


A mail dropped into my inbox this morning informing me that Joomla have released version 3.5. Amongst other new features, Joomla 3.5 supports PHP7 which speeds the site up significantly. 

I have upgraded this website with only a coouple of database errors which were fixed easily by using the 'fix database' button.

Other new features drag and drop images if you are using the Tiny MCE editor and the ability to insert modules into articles without using a third party plugin.


If you are upgrading yourself, please ensure you take a back up of your website using Akeeba Back up and do not upgrade using the extension manager.

A full list of new features is below:
