jDownloads version 4 Beta

  • The range of functions is almost identical to the previous version 3.9
  • New functions will probably only be added in version 4.1

Please note the following information

  • It is currently not recommended to use this beta version on constructive websites. If you would like to try this anyway, always make a backup of your database and all files beforehand.
  • If you want to update an existing jDownloads installation to version 4, please watch this PDF tutorial first: 
  • If the update attempt is aborted with a message about corrupt DB tables, please read the instructions here to solve the problem.
  • Also, always make a complete backup before updating!
  • Please note the hint on the picture below in order to always use the latest version.
  • As always, we accept no liability for any data loss.
  • If you find and report a bug, we aim to fix it as quickly as possible. This will be helped when reporting a bug to give relevant details so we are able to reproduce the problem.

Our special thanks go to the many users who had signed up to participate in the extensive testing.

Developers whose Joomla extensions support jDownloads in any way, or have developed their own plugins or modules for this purpose, must rework their extensions a little bit to be compatible with jDownloads 4.
