iCagenda / Roadmap

Keep Connected!


Here, a list (non-exhaustive) with the features and functions (free or commercial) that will be implemented into iCagenda.

It is not always easy to plan the development and addition of new features to come. Some features in this roadmap require others to be developed before. Currently, no exact date of delivery for each one, but estimated period of developpement.

You can express your wishes and ideas on this topic: https://www.joomlic.com/forum/icagenda-announcements/330.

We take user contributions and requests very seriously. Everything you share back with us, even if it is a bug report, an idea or a feature request, helps us improving our software. Feel free to open a new topic on the JoomliC forum, or open a ticket support, if you have an active Pro subscription.

Thank you for your patience if sometimes i can not respond in a very short time. I try to do my best!

Get involved now. Help shape iCagenda the way you need it to be.

And keep an eye on this roadmap!



Please remember all dates are tentative and estimated features for each release subject to modification.


Updated roadmap with revised goals for iCagenda development.

iCagenda 3.9 is a bridge version for Joomla 3, 4 and 5 (no need for the B/C plugin).

This version will only receive bug fix and security updates.


New features will be added in version 4 of iCagenda, starting from version 4.0 (formerly 3.9).

I will add fewer new features per minor release in order to have a shorter release time between each one.

  • 3.7.0 New Privacy Policy Consent option for registration and submission form in frontend (The GDPR requires Privacy consent to be stored with date of consent, so it will be the main difference with current ToS option of iCagenda not storing this consent, and was only blocking the registration/submission validation if not accepted).
