Bringing an update to our products with new functionalities and improvements is a continuous process. Whenever we release an update, the common question pops up on everyone’s mind is what new features and improvements are coming to which of our products. This time, we are adding GDPR compliance and bringing improvements to some of our Joomla components.

Making your website and all extensions with it GDPR compliant is definitely the first and foremost thing you should have in mind as a webmaster. To make the process easier at your end, we already have released SP Cookie Consent, a free extension that sets up cookie notice on your site asking explicit visitors consent.

We did not end there. As a part of this process to help you with GDPR compliance, we are updating our templates and extensions on a regular basis.

What this update is really about

As mentioned earlier, this update is mainly adding GDPR compliance and bringing improvements to some of our Joomla extensions. Let’s see which of our Joomla extensions are being updated and what are being added to them.
