One of the new features that was much awaited was the new Joomla Router, offering improved URL's. This would give some nice improvements in how URL's in Joomla will be created (see my earlier blogpost about this). Unfortunately though, this featured has been pulled from 3.7.
Joomla 3.7, which is about to be releases early 2017 contains a new feature called Multilingual Associations, allowing for easy side-by-side translations. This will make Joomla 3.7 the best update in years, together with the addition of Custom Fields for our articles and the new Router for improved URL’s (allowing you to remove the numbers in your Joomla article’s URL’s).
