Twitter is back and it comes with friends http://www.extly.com/blog/22-latest-news/687-twitter-is-back-and-it-comes-with-friends.html http://www.extly.com/blog/22-latest-news/687-twitter-is-back-and-it-comes-with-friends.html This month, we are releasing AutoTweetNG and Joocial 8.8 featuring Twitter news (tweets are back to 140 characters) and Medium channels support.

Twitter is back and it comes with friends

Initially, tweets had 140 characters, but Twitter changed this definition to count images and links as characters to reduce text length... Now, they are back to 140 as a way to simplify tweet writing (and our life!).

These improvements are included in the latest version released today. Stable versions are available now. Member Downloads

Medium - An online publishing platform

In this release, we are adding support for a new publishing platform to our content hub, Medium.
Medium - An online publishing platform

Medium is an online publishing platform developed by Twitter co-founder Evan Williams, and launched in August 2012.

The platform is an example of evolved social journalism, having a hybrid collection of amateur and professional people and publications, or exclusive blogs or publishers on Medium and is regularly regarded as a blog host.

AutoTweetNG Free, PRO and Joocial 8.8.0 are already available. Member Downloads

If you have any question or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our support team will be glad to help you.

To the moon!

Modern Facebook, Google and Telegram social sharing is here http://www.extly.com/blog/22-latest-news/685-modern-facebook-google-and-telegram-social-sharing-is-here.html http://www.extly.com/blog/22-latest-news/685-modern-facebook-google-and-telegram-social-sharing-is-here.html We started with small steps, adding a few enhancements and solving new feature requests.... and we attended to J and Beyond 2016. In the event, we received a clear picture of what a modern extension must provide, particularly in social networking. There is a huge movement in our industry and we are adopting the new practices in AutoTweetNG and Joocial 8.7.

autotweet joocial 8.7 modern facebook google and telegram social sharing is here

We are packing a long list of features. These are our featured news according to the innovation level and impact:

  • Facebook Instant Articles channel: We have included a new Facebook channel to support Instant Articles. Facebook’s Instant Articles were initially restricted to featured publishers, but now this technlogy is open to all publishers. For more information, click here.
  • Facebook channels update: since a long time ago, we implemented a legacy "Facebook SDK for PHP 3" library. Today, we are moving our implementation to the latest 5.2 version. This change requires PHP 5.4 or greater. For more information, click here.
  • Telegram channel: We have added Telegram support in Joocial 8.7. Telegram is a new era of messaging, a cloud-based mobile and desktop messaging app with a focus on security and speed.
  • Updated Goo.gl shorthener and Google Blogger channel: in this version, we have also updated Google integration to Client library for Google APIs 2.0.

These are an initial spring to modernize our platform. These changes bring a whole new set of features. On the other hand, we had to raise PHP requirement to 5.4 or greater.

To release this version, we are going to publish a Beta version today and the final version in a week. AutoTweetNG Free, PRO and Joocial 8.7.0 Beta are already available.

If you have any question or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our support team will be glad to help you.

Facebook Developer Alert: Graph API v2.0 is reaching the end http://www.extly.com/blog/22-latest-news/684-facebook-s-developer-alert-graph-api-v2-0-is-reaching-the-end.html http://www.extly.com/blog/22-latest-news/684-facebook-s-developer-alert-graph-api-v2-0-is-reaching-the-end.html On Monday, August 8, 2016, Facebook is going to deprecate Graph API v2.0. The Graph API is the primary way that data is retrieved from or posted to Facebook. This event affects the upcoming versions of AutoTweet and Joocial. Particularly, upcoming AutoTweet and Joocial 8.7 are going to implement the latest Facebook SDK (v5.2).

facebook s developer alert graph api v2 0 is reaching the end

Until now, AutoTweet and Joocial have been working on the venerable Facebook SDK v3. We strive to be backward-compatible and match Joomla 3 minimum requirements (PHP 5.3) ... but this time, we are forced to raise the minimum requirements to PHP 5.4 or greater.

Please, take note that PHP 5.3 and PHP 5.4 are not longer considered as stable versions. They are buggy, outdated and do not receive support by PHP community. Furthermore, PHP 5.5 is also reaching end of life on 10 Jul 2016. If you are facing the decision to upgrade, PHP 5.6 is the current stable version, with support until 31 Dec 2018.

On the bright side, we take this step as the first one heading into the direction of Autotweet and Joocial 9. This is going to be a full new platform based on modern PHP and Javascript practices.

If you have any question or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our support team will be glad to help you.

To the moon!
