    Version 3 really is starting to look spectacular! I can’t wait to see the Joomla integration components and hope that they will be coming soon.

    Is there an easy way to upgrade from RC3 to RC4?

    • olleperson66

      Wow is there a Joomla integration component too? Where can I find that one? Thats really something I have been waiting for a very very long time!!

      Please point me where to find it and info!!

      • Christopher Caruk

        It’s something that the presenter of the Drupal / Processmaker webcast mentioned. I’m do not think that it’s actually posted anywhere and I do not think there is a firm delivery date.

        I completely agree, We do not use Drupal much but Integration with Joomla (and WordPress… if they do that too) makes it possible to do some really cool things for our clients that use those CMSes!

        It would be great it ProcessMaker would hint at an availability date… How about it Liliana?

        • Liliana Iriarte

          Christopher is right, we don’t have a delivery date and we don’t have like a summary of what the integration will; be about, but it is included in our Roadmap. we’ve seen that a lot of users use WordPress (based on our last survey) so why don’t make it possible?.
          Finally, as soon as we have something about this we will announce it :)

  • Liliana Iriarte

    Hi Christopher, thanks for the comments :). To upgrade from RC3 to RC4 just follow this guide: http://wiki.processmaker.com/index.php/2.0/Upgrading_ProcessMaker

    The steps are the same. Don’t forget to backup your processes and database before the upgrade.

    • Christopher Caruk

      Thanks Liliana, I thought that it might be the same but wanted to verify before messing up our database. Good luck with the formal release and do keep your devs focused on that Jooomla integration component 😉

  • Liliana Iriarte
