About JAKWEB 05.01.2020 1554
HelpDesk 3 - Version 3.5 is finally available!
It has been a very long process and it was harder then we thought. There has been so many requests and ideas for this major release, we could not resist to build everything into our HelpDesk.
The first release of HelpDesk launched more than 7 Years ago, a lot has been changed since then. We are now at Version 3.5 and it was again a great pleasure to build something from the future.
We went through each file, folder, image and function and added, improved and changed almost everything. We had to change the release date about 5 times, but we think it was worth the wait.
Now usually the change log has a few lines, this one however has few more...

First think about a backup!!! When you have a backup of your Database and Files you can proceed with the update. :)
This is a major release, therefore you will need to update manually. Don't worry you can keep all your data, but you might loose your custom modifications.
Please follow the update guide very carefully, you will also be asked to enter your license key after the update when logging into the Operator Panel, keep it ready!
