Joomla 3.0.1 Released

joomla-3.0

The Joomla Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Joomla 3.0.1. This is a security release. This release also fixes several high-priority problems with version 3.0.0. 

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR 3.0.0 SITES: If you plan to update a site from 3.0.0 to 3.0.1, you need to install the Joomla 3.0.0 Hot Patch before doing the update to Joomla 3.0.1. See the Hot Patch Instructions for more information. This is NOT required for updating from version 2.5.x.  If you require the FTP layer you will need to manually FTP the update. Also, please note that version 3.0 users need to make sure the Update server is set to "Short Term Support" in the Joomla! Update component. Otherwise, no 3.0.x updates will show.

The Production Leadership Team's goal is to continue to provide regular, frequent updates to the Joomla community. Learn more about Joomla! development at the Developer Site.

Release Notes

Check the Joomla 3.0.1 Post-Release FAQs to see if there are important items and helpful hints discovered after the release.

Statistics for the 3.0.1 release period

  • Joomla 3.0.1 contains:
    • 1 security issue fixed
    • 1 new feature
    • 47 tracker issues fixed

Security Issues Fixed

New Feature

  • 29445 Allow different update packages for different version dev levels

    Until now, for both core auto updates and extension updates, update packages have been controlled by the 2-digit version number (e.g., 2.5, 3.0). It is not possible,for example, to have users of version 3.0.0 install a different update package than users of 3.0.1. This means the update packages are larger than they need to be. This feature allows for checking all three elements of a version number.
