General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - How to comply with it?

The European Data Protection Regulation will be applicable as of May 25th 2018 in all member states to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe. The main questions: are the Vik extensions compliant with this new law? What actions should be taken in order to be compliant?

Vik Booking v1.10

The new year 2018 could not have started better! Vik Booking v1.10 is ready for download! This feature-rich update is the result of months of intense programming, and it introduces hundreds of incredible new features.

Updating will be super easy for those who are using the Channel Manager (e4jConnect service), and for those who have recently purchased the software. However, those who never used the Channel Manager, and those who have an expired Support License, will no longer be able to download the update for free.

Vik Booking and Vik Channel Manager together make a complete software suite for any kind of accommodation. Thanks to all the suggestions and feature requests collected from our clients, we have built a Premier software suite for an open source CMS that could compete with the best software solutions of the world. In fact, e4jConnect is now a Premier Partner of channels like Booking.com.


Currency Converter Update

Some of you might have noticed that recently our Currency Conversion module for Vik Booking and Vik Rent Car has stopped working. This is because the services of Yahoo Finance and Fixer have been suddenly shut down one after another, by making their API no longer accessible. We have introduced (June 11th 2018) a new way for reading the exchange rates from the European Central Bank. To add this patch, you will need to manually force the component you are using to re-copy the core files.

VikRentItems v1.5 has been released! The long-waited update is now available with a lot of new features and improvements. However, as a consequence of these changes, Joomla 2.5 users will no longer be able to receive updates for VikRentItems. Support for Joomla versions older than v3.0.0 has been dropped and so, the last version available for Joomla 2.5 remains the v1.4. Future releases will always support only Joomla 3.0.0 or greater versions.
Those that will be purchasing VikRentItems after August 2nd 2017, will already benefit of the new features but if you are using an older version and are willing to update, this article will be useful for upgrading.


Security Notices - SQL Injection reports

Some old versions of Vik Appointments, Vik Rent Car and Vik Rent Items used to have security issues on a few front-end files. This security flaw could lead to SQL Injection attacks. The flaws have been listed on the Internet but the vulnerability reports may be false, because related to older versions of the extensions. It is important to make sure to be using the latest version of the software to avoid any potentional risk of SQL Injection.


Joomla 3.7 - New Datepicker Calendars

A new version of the Joomla framework is now available: the 3.7 series! Joomla 3.7.0 was released on April 25th 2017 with many exciting new features and improvements to security and stability. In this article we won't be digging into all the new features of Joomla 3.7.0 but we are rather going to focus on the new Datepicker calendar.
