Extension Updates

Yet Another Social Plugin 2.0.0 Released

Yet Another Social Plugin 2.0.0 has been released today.  This is the first stable release of the 2.0 series.  This version of the plugin requires Joomla! 3.4.1 or later and PHP 5.4 or later.

New for 2.0

The 2.0 release is optimized for Joomla! 3.4 and adopts the core conventions for media and template paths within plugins.  The plugin's code is restructured to enable proper HTTPS support on all sites and improves the supported languages with each API provider.  Additionally the manner in which the Facebook Like button is built is updated for the current API support.

Contributors

A big thanks to Olaf Rietzschel for writing the code adding the LinkedIn button as well as laying the framework for the language processing.

Translations

Yet Another Social Plugin has been translated into eight languages, and and these translations are included with the plugin.  A big thanks to the Open Translators teams for translating the plugin!

Upgrade from 1.x

You will be able to update from any previous release by downloading the package from this site or using the core Joomla! update system to upgrade from your site's backend.  Note that there is a backward compatibility break between the 1.x and 2.0 releases to follow Joomla! standard conventions for media overrides.  Please see this article for more information.

Need Additional Support?

Documentation about the plugin is available on this site in the Yet Another Social Plugin section.  This area includes information about the plugin, a description of the various configuration options (coming soon), and a method to subscribe for e-mail updates.  If you don't see something here that you think would be beneficial for all users, feel free to Contact Me with your suggestion.

Future Development

As bug reports come in and features are requested, I will modify the code and issue new releases.  However, given the core features are derived from stable API's, there will probably not be many releases with major changes.

Support the Project

You can contribute to the project by visiting the space on GitHub at https://github.com/BabDev/Yet-Another-Social-Plugin and report bugs, provide patches for known issues, suggest new improvements, or download a working copy of the Git repository.
