Joomla is a flexible, easy to extend, and customizable CMS according to your requirement. It has many more features like it is SEO optimized already, free open source software, and also support multilingual feature in the website.

So to make it better, Joomla 3.9 was released on 30 October 2018 and it has ‘privacy tool suite’. This new release has many improvements to provide more efficient development. This release will surely improve the Joomla development services and ability to manage the content with privacy. This release brought more than 250 improvements in Joomla CMS and Joomla 3.9’s core feature is a full privacy tool suite. This tool suite makes the site compliance faster and simpler.

Now let’s find out what’s new in Joomla 3.9…

Basically, I would rather say that this release is more about privacy. In 3.9 version of Joomla, a privacy tool suite is a core concern.

USER Consents: Make light work of data privacy requirements

It has been a while that you require your user’s consent to your T&C or/and privacy policy. But now it will be taken care by Joomla 3.9 automatically. It’s easy and simple to setup core forms to request consent prior to collecting personal data. You can also manage expiration time and renew time of consent form. You can easily track consents of users and manage policy changes at a glance of your dashboard.

Easy-Peasy Request of User Information

Now it is possible to manage and track information access or removal requests from users without any hurdle. You can export their complete data or/and remove them after just logging in.

All removal requests of user data are handled automatically, without any effort. You just need to set Joomla 3.9 to remise you.

Capability of Extension

Whenever it is about privacy, always put your users on priority.  Extension developers should provide a helping hand to potential users and make them clear that what data your extension will collect. Now whenever you need privacy consideration functionality in extension, then you can easily use new Plugin Event (onPrivacyCollectAdminCapabilities).

While using this Plugin, your users will gain an understanding of your extension that whether they will need to rephrase their documentation for e.g. privacy policy or terms.

User Actions Log: Know who’s done what, and when

Are you curious to know about that what admin actions have been taken on your website? If yes then thanks to the new release of Joomla 3.9. Now superuser can easily check that which user did what and when. This feature also works supported extensions. You can easily review the action log, export and purge the entries.

Now you will never miss anything and for this thanks to the latest module which can be simply added to the control panel. If you need more then enable the new log rotation blog and this will let you rotate and isolate the log files of yours.
