Updating to minor versions of our extensions

Moving to a new minor version of our extensions (x.x.X third number changes, from version 1.2.1 to version 1.2.2 for example) is easy. Most of the time these versions only have bug fixes, small new features and improvements. You can view changes in a certain new version in the extensions changelog. You can update to new minor version of our extensions patch update (x.x.X) without hesitation. We do advise creating a backup with Akeeba Backup. For any questions you might encounter when creating your backup see: www.akeeba.com/contact-us.

Please note that when updating or upgrading all custom modifications you might have done will be or can be lost.

Updating to minor versions is simple, just install the new version over the old version with the Joomla! Extension Manager or use our built-in Live Update function! 

Updating to major versions of our extensions

When updating to major versions you always need to do a little investigation. Major releases almost always have large new features or changes which might impact your workflow or current installation.

  • x.X.x second number changes, from version 1.2.1 to version 1.3.0
  • X.x.x first number changes, from version 1.2.1 to version 2.0.0

We always advise creating a backup with Akeeba Backup. For any questions you might encounter when creating your backup see: www.akeeba.com/contact-us.
