JReviews 2.4 RC1 has been released!


Recommended Posts

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of JReviews 2.4 RC 1 ( We are now recommending this version for use in production sites because there's less code likely to change in subsequent versions and especially in theme files which is where most clients make their customizations. As new bugs are found and reported we'll release more versions until we reach 2.4 Stable.


The upgrade is available via remote update if you have installed a previous beta and it is also available for download in the client area. You need a valid upgrades package.


If you have overrides, you must first rename the overrides folder and clear the file registry. Beta 4 files will not be necessarily compatible with RC1 and you must always compare your overrides with the newer version to make sure your files are up to date.


Upgrading from JReviews 2.3 or earlier? read the Upgrading from to JReviews 2.4 from earlier versions guide.


PaidListings is not available for JReviews 2.4 RC1 and due to the fact that we are getting very close to the end of the year it will not be ready this year. We need to invest a significant amount of time re-writing the add-on to make it compatible with JReviews 2.4.
