PWT ACL 3.2.1 released - Fixing (Joomla 3.9) bugs

Friday, 02 November 2018

We are pleased to announce the availability of PWT ACL 3.2.1. In this release, we fixed a couple of bugs, some related to the release of Joomla 3.9. We have also added an option to completely disable the asset detection notice on the control panel.

Fixing bugs

This release is mainly a bug fix release. We fixed a couple bugs related to the newly introduced features in PWT ACL 3.2.0 (Display language of assetNew filters: Start level, End level and Language and Quickscan Asset Issues detection notice). We have also made a couple of changes to align with the latest Joomla 3.9 release that contains new Joomla-core components (com_actionlog & com_privacy) but without ACL permissions. 

We have also added an option to the PWT ACL component options to completely disable the asset detection notice on the control panel of Joomla. Many liked this new feature, but some would like to hide it. So you have now full control of the visibility of this message.
