The EasySocial App 5.4 release marks a huge milestone in the development of this product. This version is a complete rewrite of the code and uses the nice new UI that we spoke about some months back. The app is now based on the Unite Framework and brings some fantastic performance improvements. Using Unite also means that we can make improvements faster.

A glimpse at some of the major design changes that are a part of this release.
Note that EasySocial App 5.4 needs you to use com_api version 2.2 & compatible plugins. The common installer package has been updated to support this. Note that you should not upgrade the APIs if you have a single site as the backend for other apps using com_api other than EasySocial. As of now ‘The Blog App’ and the jTicketing Event Manager app are not compatible with the new com_api. In this case, please wait till next week for new versions of these apps to come out before you upgrade.
The application is now compatible with AC Builder allowing you to edit basic app configuration and styling on your own, speeding up the build process. Read the documentation here on how you can request a new build. Existing subscribers can do this right away !
Note that we are updating the EasyBundle build to support the new designs and integration between the Blog and EasySocial apps. We will issue an update on this release soon post which EasyBundle subscribers can request updates for the same.
