Support for custom Amazon S3 regions. You can now enter custom Amazon S3 region names when using the v4 signature method. This lets you do two things. First, you can use new regions added by Amazon before we can add a hardcoded region name in the interface. Second, you can use third party storage services which offer an Amazon S3 compatible API using v4 signatures (instead of v2 signatures).
Support for MySQL SSL/TLS connections for Akeeba Solo and backed up sites. (Only for Akeeba Solo). Akeeba Solo allows you to use an explicit SSL/TLS connection to the MySQL server. This can work in two ways. On one hand, it can identify the server to the client using a Certification Authority (CA) certificate file. On the other hand it can replace the password to connect to the database server using a public and private certificate pair — much like SSH. Akeeba Solo and its restoration script support both methods in any combination (server-only identification, client-only identification and mutual identification). This is an extremely rare use case, most commonly encountered with database servers hosted on Microsoft Azure. Please note that when it comes to backed up and restored sites this feature only makes sense with Joomla 4 which fully suports encrypted connections.
