sh404SEF version 4.15.2 released


We're pleased to announce the release of sh404SEF version 4.15.2. This is a large maintenance release with several bug fixes and improvements of existing features:

Here are the highlights:

  • Regular expressions based redirects should use new syntax for redirect targets ({$1}, {$2} instead of previous {*}). Old format redirects will still work normally
  • Protect against extensions using onContentPrepare on raw documents, can break some site features when automatic description generation is enabled
  • Remove style tags when automatically building meta-description. Thanks Peter
  • Now using base64 encode instead of json for embedding auto-generated descriptions and image tags, more reliable when shortcodes are used in content
  • Added support for automatic description with UniteGallery
  • Updated Facebook API version to 3.1
  • Added Quix short code to list of shortcode to be removed when auto-generating meta description
  • On redirects, do not append again query string if the redirect is an exact match
  • Structured data phone numbers may loose their required leading + sign
  • On multilingual sites, if language code is inserted in default language URLs, the home page canonical is not correct
  • Updated Spanish translation

Please see this page for a full changelog. This release is immediately available both from the download area and using the one-click Joomla! updater of your web site.

Best regards
