Joomla! 1.0.12 [ Sunfire ] is available as of Monday the 25th of December 2006 1:00 UTC for download here.
We suggest that all Joomla! users upgrade to this version.
Joomla! 1.0.12 features:
- 140+ General Bug Fixes
- Several low level security fixes
- A full security audit of SQL queries
- SSL switchover support
Although this release contains several security fixes, as they are of a low level nature, this release is still being characterized as a Stability Release. If you are running a version of Joomla! older than 1.0.11, you should upgrade immediately to at least Joomla! 1.0.11 as that release addressed several important security issues. If you are using Joomla! 1.0.11, we recommend that you upgrade to 1.0.12 as it addresses several long standing bugs and several low level security issues.
We are also pleased to announce the creation of a new Security Announcements Forum. As the name suggests, this forum will be used for security announcements for the Joomla! core and third party extensions. We strongly encourage that all Joomla! users register on forum.joomla.org and subscribe to this forum to ensure that they receive notification of important security issues as soon as possible. We also encourage you to do same for all third-party extensions you use, where available.

This is the second year running, the Joomla! team has won the prestigious award. Louis Landry, Johan Janssens and Peter Russell accepted the award from LinuxUser and Developer magazine publisher Maggie Meer.
Johan described the win for Joomla! as "one for the community". "The buzz around the Joomla! project is driven by our huge user base and this translates into what is fast becoming the most popular open source framework going," Johan said.
Chris Adams, of Rochen, who is a major sponsor of the Joomla! project was nominated as Best Linux Open Source ISP / Internet Host. Unfortunately, Rochen missed out this year but it was great to have Rochen with us to celebrate. "Chris and the Rochen guys are part of the Joomla! family ... this is as much Rochen's award as it is the developers and the communities."
