We are pleased to announce the immediately availability of DOCman 1.6.3 for Joomla 1.7. This release is available for download for all members of our Member Center.
This hotfix release fixes one (1) major bug in 1.6.2. This bug also affects all previous versions of DOCman 1.6.x. running on Joomla 1.7.3. DOCman 1.6.x running on Joomla 1.7.2 or below is not affected. This bug does not affect the DOCman 1.5.x series
We became aware of issues with DOCman 1.6.x running on Joomla 1.7.3 through user reports on our forums. A change in Joomla 1.7.3 caused an unanticipated `Itemid` regression in DOCman. The result was, in some cases, categories or documents which are meant to be visible to the public would ask you to login or would return a 403 error.
More information about the new releases can be found in our change-logs.
