1. Fabrik 3.8.1 has been released. It is mostly bug fixes and feature enhancements, but does include two new plugins (push notifications, and the sequence element). As usual we strongly recommend testing the new release on a sandbox if your application is mission critical, and always do an Akeeba backup before updating.

    Does Fabrik have plans to incorporate ADA Compliance? As of January 18th, 2018, public facing sites will become open targets for class action lawsuits if they are not ADA Compliant. Law firms representing private litigants have become increasingly aggressive in recent months in pursuing retailers regarding web accessibility. Developers that rely on Fabrik to support their client base will face a rude awakening if any of them get sued resulting from non-ADA compliance. It would be comforting to know the Fabrik developers have a plan to incorporate ADA compliance into Fabrik as there are many items that are currently not compliant (form controls, buttons, etc.).

    We're working on that in 4.0, where Joomla itself is committing to a11y.

    There's too many areas in J! 3.x, with the preponderance of Bootstrap v3, where it's just not possible.
