Joomla! 3.6 is the seventh standard-term support release in the Joomla 3 series. Joomla! 3.6 introduces more than 400 improvements, including many features which make administration of Joomla! Web sites easier and more feature-rich, as well as many UX (user experience) improvements.
Here are some highlights of the 3.6 release:
Joomla! Update has been improved and now allows you to reinstall Joomla’s core files at the click of a button, overwriting any modified files and reverting them back to the default.
Joomla! 3.6 contains a lot of UX improvements. Now you can find your modules faster, have tasks done by drop down, improved user management and many other features.
With the new Sub Form Field function in Joomla! 3.6, some extra additional functionality next to Repeatable fields has been added. Now you can nest XML forms inside each other or reuse your existing forms inside your current form.
Create categories on the fly: It can get frustrating when you create a new item, and you realize that you haven’t created a category yet. Joomla! 3.6 now lets you create a category on the fly for articles, contacts, news feeds and banners.
Menu type ACL: ACL in the back-end did not exist at the menu level, now Joomla has improved that. Give or block certain user groups access to a specific menu, and therefore also all menu items of that menu.
All Menu Items: The new option to show all items from all menus gives you a quick overview of what is displayed where on your website. It has never been easier to spot duplicated links, missing menu items or just get an overview of every menu on your site.
