# A new release version for Joomla 3.9.2
I cannot wait to share my excitement about it. Joomla 3.9.2 has been released. It’s largely about privacy and user data management. There are many other good stuffs inside Joomla 3.9.2.
The Privacy Tool Suite Extensions
Joomla calls v3.9.2 the ‘Privacy Tool Suite’ that has a load of privacy focused features inside. Joomla 3.9 addresses the concerns of GDPR, an EU privacy law which went into effect on May 25, 2018. Compliance with GDPR is crucial because a breach could make you face a fine of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million. New Joomla has some amazing tools that help you facilitate user data privacy to play nice with the privacy laws.
Joomla 3.9.2 handles user-privacy in a well-suited way. You get several new tools to handle user-consent and data management from the beginning. Here is the approach at a glance.
User Action Log
If you are a Super User on your Joomla site, now you can see what administrative actions are taken by which user starting from Joomla 3.9.2. There will be detailed logs containing the date, time, and export/purge options. Additionally, the supported extensions will also provide action logs.
Easier Content Management
Joomla 3.9.2 makes it easier to manage contents on your website with some simple new features. Add notes: You can add notes to your Joomla articles on the backend and filter them. These notes are visible in the backend list environment so admins can learn if there is anything special about an article.
Search contents: Before Joomla 3.9.2, you could search articles by their title words/phrases from the backend. That search would not work with the articles’ inner contents. It used to work with the titles only. But now, with Joomla 3.9.2, you can search inside the Joomla article contents from the backend.
# What about Bold templates?
With the release of EasySocial 3.0 Stable, PayPlans 4.0 Stable and Joomla 3.9.2, we are super thrilled to be announcing that all of our templates are now compatible with the latest version of Joomla and extensions that come with each template.
