I updated to Joomla 3.7 and shortly thereafter, my CiviCRM cron job started failing. When I hit the URL in a browser, I get:
Fatal error: Call to a member function get() on null in /home/public_html/libraries/joomla/session/handler/joomla.php on line 71
That's PHP 5.6.30 and it's a little different on PHP 7.0.16 (with max reporting on):
Error displaying the error page: Application Instantiation Error: Call to a member function get() on null
I'm using CiviCRM 4.7.18. This looks like a CiviCRM issue since my other cron job works fine.
