jDownloads 3.9.1 Stable Release Published!

jdownloads logo bigWe are very proud to present the first stable jDownloads version 3.9.1 for Joomla 3.9.

Our aim for this new version was to support the recently added functions of the current Joomla Version 3.9.1 as far as possible and to integrate them into jDownloads.  But it was also necessary to remove or change some old parts.  This means that version 3.9.1 is not backwards compatible with version 3.2.x.  There is more detailed information in the documentation for jDownloads 3.9.

If  you are upgrading from an existing 3.2 installation to the new version 3.9.1 please see the upgrading guide.  It is an easy, multistep upgrade, not complicated a migration! 

If you are installing jDownloads for the first time then see the article first time installation.
