[Release] New functionalities and plenty of improvements

april release banner

Another month, another cool little release focuses on stability and enhancements. After we shipped jApps 3.0, Joobi team moved to a continuous delivery model for Joobi Applications. Our goal is to make frequent, sometimes multiple times a week, releases to ensure that we are continually improving Joobi Apps and delivering value to our customers.🙂


Here's what's in today's release.

Better Item's Map Display

Store items are displayed in the map as a pin to show the exact location of the item. The pin can now be displayed with more information about the product such us product name, price, item vendor and address.

You can use it to ensure timely delivery of all your Joobi Application emails you are sending from your website. With Elastic Email your first 150000 emails are free per month, after that you have to pay $0.09/thousand emails and so on

How do I update?

Requirements: You need jApps 2.8 to access the new released version. If you are using a version lower than jApps 2.8, please browse the change-logs and locate the version you are using and follow each individual update guide.

Website Backup: Your Responsibility!

We always recommend to do a backup before doing any changes in your production website and ensure you can easily recover your backup.

If you meet the above requirements, just wait for an automated email from your website notifying you about the new update (usually it takes a few hours, up to a week after the initial release) so you get a more stable build.

However if you can't wait to get your hands on the new enhancements, just click "Check" button from jApps App manager page.

You'll need an active subscription to access the release server. If you have an expired subscription, please renew your membership.
