Hello

I have many sites created using themler + Joomla (for me actually best tool to create websites). On each page I have different themler version. I see, in new versions many new functions, but I don't need new functions in old pages.
But question is: Should I upgrade old pages too for security reasons ? Maybe some themler versions have security bugs and upgrade is important?

I don't see any informations about security in updates notifications.

BTW: Notification about updates is weak. Not all updates have changelogs in news page. This is not professional. I don't have time to update and search what is changed in new versions. For me, each official update should be available in the same time as changelog in news page. Actually last changelog is for v241. In the meantime i upgraded to v247 and today to v256. I think many users want read changelog before update.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting us. Actually we haven't heard about any security issues with the old versions so you can keep the old version if it works for you. Normally the latest update includes the numerous bug fixes in the design area.
As for the change logs, we do post them for the major updates. All the last updates were the hot fixes with the minor editions to the software so you even do not notice them, but if you have faced some serious problem we are working quickly to fix it and release the update. We think that there is no need for the change logs as there is nothing to announce there, only bug fixes.

Sincerely,
Hella
