Extension installer / hashing / howto

Post by sits-vienna » Mon Apr 01, 2019 4:10 pm

Hello developers,

I am starting with the "J4 compatibility challange" for my Joomla extensions.
Could anyone direct me to some overview documentation on how-to deal with the (more or less) new "Hash values" requirement in the extension installer?

I understand J4 requires these hashes in the manifest.xml for each extension (and my dev-installation alpha8 indeed moaned about these missing hashes).

Any guidance would be much appreciated...

Cheers

Meanwhile I found this github issue describing the change:
https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/pull/17555

and an example of the update server manifest:
