Please note, as always, in each new major version, there are also some new Language phrases were added into the XML Language Files in C:\Program Files\PHPMaker 2020\languages folder. I modified language files (Arabic, English, and Indonesian), so that you don't need to update or insert the new phrases into your XML Language Files.
As always, extract the downloaded Extensions to your C:\Program Files\PHPMaker 2020\extensions folder, afterwards enable all of them from Tools -> Extensions of your PHPMaker application. Also, extract the .xml language files into your C:\Program Files\PHPMaker 2020\languages folder.
Don't forget also, to always play with some of their Advanced settings in order to see some new settings available.
