Fabrik 3.3.3 is now available for download[1].

This is a security release and we strongly recommend that you upgrade. The security fix resolves an potential information disclosure issue which affects all previous versions of Fabrik for Joomla 3.

We've improved the usage of the chosen dropdown rendering within Fabrik, so that it will work for dropdowns within repeat groups. To activate this option you need to go to Fabrik's global configuration, Forms section, and select 'Per element' for the  "Advanced Format (WIP) " option. Then for each element you wish to be rendered as a chosen dropdown turn on its 'Advanced Format (WIP)' option.

Behind the scenes we've moved over from our old ant build script to using Grunt.js. This is simply a lot easier for us to manage and set up. It also makes the repository a lot lighter as we have been able to remove several libraries from the fabrik_build folder which were taking up a lot of space.

One major change is our move over to using JLayouts is almost complete, most plugins and core code are now rendering output via JLayouts. This allows you fine grained control over how almost every part of Fabrik is rendered. To find out more about it please read the Fabrik JLayouts wiki page[2].

We'd like to thank everyone who has contributed to this release including troester, bauer-git, Simone Bussoni, Hugh Messenger, paulv888 & Jaanus Nurmoja.
