On September 14 2019, European regulation (PSD2) will mandate Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) for many online payments. We are updating Bookster to allow our clients to meet the new standards as simply and easily as possible.
We continue to strengthen and deepen our integrations with Booking.com and Rentals United.
Our "Owner Statements" for automatically generating monthly PDF statements and invoices to your property owners is also being updated continuously in response to client feedback.

The content syncing with Booking.com gets improved so that it can be enabled from within the Booking.com settings for all your properties.
The April release see us release (beta) the ability to reduce prices automatically for unsold properties. There are some updates to our Booking.com integration with regards to the content API as well as numerous bug fixes and smaller updates.

The march towards getting Owner Statement out of Beta and available to all clients continued as we tested the feature with various clients.

Mainly a preparation for moving to PHP7 and Joomla 3.9.
