Joomla! 3.3 - Do More

The Joomla! Project and the Production Leadership Team are proud to announce the release of Joomla! 3.2.4 and 3.3, the latest releases of the 3.x release series.

If you are currently running Joomla! 3.2 on a server with PHP 5.3.10 or later, we encourage you to update immediately to Joomla! 3.3 via either the one-click update or the update downloads available at http://www.joomla.org/download.html. For sites on servers with a version of PHP less than 5.3.10, 3.2.4 is the release for you. However, please talk to your host about updating to PHP 5.3.10+, which is easy to do. For other versions of the 3.x series, applying the update is recommended as soon as possible.

Note that in order to update directly to 3.3 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 3.2.4 before being presented the 3.3 update.

What's in 3.3?

The 3.3 release introduces new features into the CMS such as improved password hashing and microdata and optimizes the code with performance improvements to the routing system and the continued conversion of MooTools based JavaScript to jQuery.

Thanks to the hard work of over 40 different volunteer contributors, over 115 bugs have also been resolved with the 3.3 release of the Joomla! CMS.

See http://developer.joomla.org/version-3-3-0-release-notes.html for details of the tracker items fixed.

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 Joomla! Developer Network.
