Let's look at them in details.
SQL injection is a technique in which an attacker inserts malicious code into strings that are later passed to a database. In new version we've found vulnerabilities and added protection against them.
Now it's possible to connect book with two or more authors.
In new Book Library v. 3.5 it's even more comfortable to handle books via frontend. To existing options for books management (add/delete/publish/unpublish/rent/return from rent) were added ability to edit own books from frontend area. So users, moderators and administrators can easily manage books and requests without entering the administration panel.
After upgrading to Joomla 3.5, there were slight issues with backend Search. We've checked all Search fields and corrected wrong ones.
Other improvements in Book Library v.3.6 includes views of PDF, print and email icons, fixing bug with RSS and adding access option for editing books from frontend.
