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.
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.

To the moon!
