December 31st, 2015: SocialConnect v1.7.0 was created by JoomlaWorks
SocialConnect v1.7.0 is now available for all active subscribers to download.

This new version primarily fixes functionality broken by recent updates in Joomla 3.4.x and changes in the Facebook API. More specifically:
- Redirect after login/logout now works for all login adapters (Joomla username, email, social connectors). Please note that if you do not specifically set which menu items to redirect to after a user logs in, SocialConnect will use the default settings from Joomla. That is, upon login, users get redirected to the profile edit page. So to avoid this behaviour, just create a SocialConnect menu item for the login page and set a menu item to redirect to after users login.
- Fixed Facebook login issue due to recent changes in Facebook's graph API.
- Updated SocialConnect so auto-post for pages works with the latest Facebook API 2.3.
- Updated extension so Joomla's modal script (and Mootools which is required by that script) is only loaded when needed (=when users are logged in).
- Fixed activation issue in Joomla 3.4.x
- Fixed Twitter cards issue on K2 item pages
- Fixed Facebook meta tags issue under Joomla! 3.3+
- Added "update" endpoint so future versions are visible in Joomla's update manager (for Joomla versions 2.5 & 3.x+)
