We are going to take a first look at Joomla 3.2 and see the new features that have been added. Joomla 3.2 will be the last feature release before the long term Joomla 3.5 in March 2014. Planned new features in Joomla 3.2 that we will be taking a look at include version control for articles, a built in "app" store, template manager improvements, Rapid Application Development Framework (Akeeba FOF), Ajax interface, and two factor authentication.

  13. 13. TWO FACTOR AUTHENTICATION
  14. 14. SECURITY • Bcrypt • A serious security concern is the current encryption used by Joomla passwords by default i.e. Salted MD5. While once an advanced method, it is no longer considered a strong solution. Currently BCrypt is considered the best available solution.
  15. 15. RAD (aka FoF) • FOF = Framework on Framework • Rapid application development framework for Joomla • Not standalone – it extends Joomla • Write less code, do more • Same code that powers Akeeba products
  16. 16. USER INTERFACE • If you only have one language installed, you wont see language drop down on admin login
  17. 17. USER INTERFACE • Drop down moved and now tab accessible
  18. 18. USER INTERFACE • Buttons context sensitive

  31. 31. AJAX INTERFACE • An easier way for developers to provide Ajax support where it doesn't already exist.
  32. 32. APP STORE After reviewing the current proposed code for 3.2 and the feedback from the community, the PLT has agreed that this proposal is not ready for inclusion in the CMS. There is no debate about desiring an app store in the CMS and it is something we would like to see happen down the road, but we don't feel that day is today. Excerpt from email sent by Michael Babker 23/09/2013 To Joomla CMS Mailing List
  33. 33. APP STORE • Actually, a compromise was reached on the App Store feature and that will be shared in the coming days. It won't be in the core distro, but we (PLT and the team working on it) came up with a solution that should work for everyone. Michael Babker comment on Joomla Beat last week
