This page is tagged because it NEEDS UPDATING. You can help the Joomla! Documentation Wiki by contributing to it.
More pages that need help similar to this one are here. NOTE-If you feel the need is satistified, please remove this notice.
Reason: Could this page be moved to J2.5 namespace? Updated to reflect 2.5 differences to 1.5? Title change- Developer Notes on Joomla 1.5 vs 2.5
Compilation of developer notes on changes in 1.6.
- Added ACL tables (todo - list them)
- Removed jos_groups table
- Removed jos_plugins table in favour of jos_extensions
- Added update tables
JAuthorization::getUserAccessLevels( $section [, $action = 'view'] ).
JDatabase::setQuery casts the sql variable to a string. This allows you to pass an object that implements the __toString magic method.
Both JFile::write and JFTP::write now use a reference for its second argument. Code like JFile::write($filename,'string'); will fail, however $data = 'string'; JFile::write($filename, $data); will work for both 1.5 and 1.6
JModel::getState will now take an optional second argument to set the default.
$value = $model->getState( 'foo', 'bar' );
JModel has an addition contruction option and internal variable
__state_set. This is used to lazy-load model initialisation.
JTableTree as an abstract class for tree-based tables.
Made JObject abstract. It can no longer be directly instantiated. Use JStdClass instead.
JDocumentXML to allow easy generation of valid XML files.
Changes to XML-RPC support
On april the 9th. Louis Landry explained his intended changes to the way Joomla will handle XML-RPC in version 1.6. You can view his detailed explanation here.
Join for access level
LEFT JOIN #__groups AS g ON g.id = c.access
LEFT JOIN #__core_acl_axo_groups AS g ON g.value = a.access
Only available in legacy mode (to be dropped in future versions):
global $mainframe - Use
$app = &JFactory::getApplication() instead.
- JTemplate (patTemplate completely deprecated)
- Multiple client language install packs (e.g. where site and administrator language files are in the same installation file), use packages with two language install packages
- Support for constants as language strings with JLanguage
- Polls component
Mapping of positions in Milky Way 1.5 to new positions.
Please use Version_1.6._Migration_Notes to track migration issues that are not schema changes.
