Joomla! 3.3.4 Released

Joomla! 3.3 - Do More

Security ReleaseThe Joomla! Project and the Production Leadership Team are proud to announce the release of Joomla! 3.3.4. This is a security release for the 3.x series of Joomla! and addresses two security issues. A 3.2.5 release is also available for users who are still using Joomla! 3.2 which addresses these 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 3.3.4 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 3.2.5 before being presented the 3.3.4 update.

Joomla! 2.5.25 Released

Security ReleaseThe Joomla Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Joomla 2.5.25. This is a security release for the 2.5 series of Joomla! and addresses one moderate level security issue.

The update process is very simple, and complete instructions are available here. Note that there are easier and better ways of updating than copying the files with FTP.

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 2.5.26 will be the last scheduled maintenance release, due in approximately six to eight weeks, the typical timeframe between Joomla! releases.
