Joomla! 2.5.28 Released

10 Dec 2014

Joomla! 3.3 - Do More

Image credit: Helvecio

The Joomla! Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Joomla 2.5.28. This is a maintenance release for the 2.5 series of Joomla! and is the final scheduled release of the series. Support for Joomla! 2.5 is scheduled to end on December 31, 2014.

What does this mean for me?

End of support refers to when Joomla! no longer provides bug fixes, features, or security updates for a release. This is the time to make sure you have the latest available update of Joomla. Your website will continue to work as normal.

Joomla! 3.3.6 Released

1 Oct 2014

Joomla! 3.3 - Do More

Security ReleaseImage credit: JoomlArt

The Joomla! Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Joomla 3.3.6. This is a maintenance release addressing issues with yesterday’s 3.3.5 release. This release addresses an issue related to the core update component, one regression in the user password reset process, and adds a fallback upgrade mechanism for the update component. This release is considered a security release since it includes two resolved security issues associated with 3.3.5. A 3.2.7 release is also available for users who are still using Joomla! 3.2 which addresses the security issues and the upgrade component bug.

If you are currently running a Joomla! release on a server with PHP 5.3.10 or later, we encourage you to update immediately to Joomla! 3.3.6 via either the one-click update or the update downloads available at http://www.joomla.org/download.html.

Note that in order to update directly to 3.3.6 via the core update component, you must be running 3.2.2 or later due to the raised minimum supported PHP version and the update system not supporting checking the server’s PHP version in older releases. Older 3.x releases will be prompted to update to 3.2.7 before being presented the 3.3.6 update.

Special Download Instructions

Because of the issue with the update component, users who are running 3.2.6 or 3.3.5 will be unable to update to the next release using Joomla's update component. These users will be required to update their Joomla! installation via the Extension Manager. Instructions for updating via the Extension Manager can be found on the Joomla! Documentation Wiki. Users who are running Joomla! 3.3.0 through 3.3.4 and 3.2.5 or earlier will be able to update using the update component. The Joomla! Documentation wiki contains full instructions on how to update your site.

Joomla! 2.5.27 Released

1 Oct 2014

Security ReleaseThe Joomla! Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Joomla 2.5.27. This is a maintenance release addressing issues with yesterday’s 2.5.26 release. This release addresses an issue related to the core update component. This release is considered a security release since it includes two resolved security issues associated with 2.5.26.

Special Download Instructions

Because of the issue with the update component, users who are running 2.5.26 will be unable to update to 2.5.27 using Joomla's update component. These users will be required to update their Joomla! installation via the Extension Manager. Instructions for updating via the Extension Manager can be found on the Joomla! Documentation Wiki. Users who are running Joomla! 2.5.25 or earlier will be able to update using the update component. The Joomla! Documentation Wiki contains full instructions on how to update your site.

2.5 End of Life Update

As previously noted, the 2.5 series will reach end of life at the end of 2014, which will mark the end of support for this series. At this time, we project that 2.5.28 will be the last scheduled maintenance release, due in approximately six to eight weeks, the typical timeframe between Joomla! releases.

Joomla! 3.3.5 Released

30 Sep 2014

Joomla! 3.3 - Do More

Security ReleaseThe Joomla! Project and the Production Leadership Team are proud to announce the release of Joomla! 3.3.5. This is a security release for the 3.x series of Joomla! and addresses two security issues in addition to several regressions introduced in the 3.3.4 release. A 3.2.6 release is also available for users who are still using Joomla! 3.2 which addresses the security issues.

If you are currently running a Joomla! release on a server with PHP 5.3.10 or later, we encourage you to update immediately to Joomla! 3.3.4 via either the one-click update or the update downloads available at http://www.joomla.org/download.html.

Note that in order to update directly to 3.3.5 via the core update component, you must be running 3.2.2 or later due to the raised minimum supported PHP version and the update system not supporting checking the server’s PHP version in older releases. Older 3.x releases will be prompted to update to 3.2.6 before being presented the 3.3.5 update.
