[Feature Request] Automatic Core Updates

Post by simondavies315 » Sun Mar 05, 2017 8:31 pm

Could you please add the ability to perform core automatic updates to Joomla. Wordpress has this feature and it's something I feel would be beneficial to add to the CMS itself.

I know there are drawbacks to it but having the option would be nice, I've never personally had any issues with updates breaking my website or third party plugins in the last 3 years.

In the immortal words of my mother, "If your friends were all going to jump off a bridge, would you go too?"

Really, I don't think I would EVER choose an auto update of Joomla's core, at least not without tying it to an auto backup routine prior to the update.
Don't HACK the Joomla! core, Instead "Extend" and/or "Override."
Stay ON the update path.
