Release date: 23 January 2024.
Tabs and Sliders 5.0.8 is a bug fix release for this useful site map extension.
The latest release of Tabs and Sliders by developer Joomlashack is compatible with Joomla! 4 and PHP 8.1.
The Backward Compatibility Plugin is enabled by default in the Joomla! 5 CMS.
Purpose: to enable Third Party Extensions which are not yet compatible with the Joomla! 5 CMS to continue to function after you update your website from an earlier Joomla! version.
Your website's page load times may be slower when the Backward Compatibility Plugin is enabled.
For this reason you may wish to avoid using extensions which require its use.
If all your website's Third Party Extensions are compatible with Joomla! 5 then you may disable the plugin.
The Joomla! Project has published a useful guide at the following link.
The developer states on their website that they will "provide support until at least August 2024".
Back up before updating any 3rd party Joomla! extension
Any update can break your website.
Perform a FULL backup of your website (database and files) before installing any update.
