Hi everyone,

* I've checked the files in the latest-version.zip file, and I found no changes in the next files:

admin > templates > css > chartist.css
admin > templates > css > mobile.css
admin > templates > js > plugins > sortable.js
admin > templates > js > jquery.js
admin > templates > _header.php
admin > templates > login.php
control > classes > certs > cacert.pem
control > classes > mailer > src > Exception.php
control > classes > system > class.cleantalk.php
control > classes > class.gateway.php
control > system > gateway > refunded.php
control > system > modules > rss.php
control > system > _ajax.php
control > tcpdf > tcpdf.php
content > language > english > add.php
content > language > english > global.php
content > _theme_default > header.tpl.php

I don't know if this is intended, or just a "slip".

* * Updated Open Graph, Twitter Cards etc to use event thumbnail rather than default image. Thumbnail must be 200x200 or greater.
If the thumbnails are less than 200x200, why don't use the original image itself? It'll will have a best resolution and size...

* The new version of normalize.css (v8) included in this update:
"Remove support for older browsers Android 4, lte IE 9, lte Safari 7."
It'll be great to warn the webmasters before the update wink

* The CSS files, and the JS files, aren't minified, and now it's a MUST to improve the speed of websites. It'll be great to have the same files with a .min version.

* In the "CSS File Changes" of the "Software Upgrade - v3.3" documentation, there are more changes that are missing:

.footbar .date {
  text-transform: capitalize;
}
.eventarea .details .date {
  text-transform: capitalize;
}
.event_calendar .dayviewarea .noevents {
  font-style: italic;
  font-size: 12px;
}
.eventpagearea .bottom .text .highlight {
  color: #008198;
  text-transform: capitalize;
}

*  Why are we keeping the local JS/CSS files when we could use the CDN ones?:

Faster for the visitor, and less CPU/RAM for the web server wink

Yes, the patch files contain all files updated since 3.0. Not just files updated since the last version. So, if someone wanted to upgrade from 3.0 or 3.1 it`s the same file set. smile

Because some people upload images that are huge in file size, they have no idea of optimising images for the web and then they would wonder why their site is so slow. Best to stick to the thumbnails. smile

Sorry, I missed that.

In most cases it really makes no difference with speed. I did actually minify all the css/js files originally, but then I get inundated with messages asking me why the files are garbled. Many people have no idea of min v normal. So, if you want to minify the files, no problem.

Thanks, I will add those in. They weren`t included because they aren`t really needed.

It`s debatable whether CDNs make much difference. Loading data from remote servers is never a good thing as servers are not 100% reliable, no matter where they are. Plus, a lot of people who want self hosted software do not want data loading from external servers. Again, personal preference, but I prefer to load them locally. You can change the links if you want to.
