September will be a busy month for Joomla!. We will be attending the O'Reilly EuroOSCON open source convention in Brussels.  Our German community has also informed us about their first Joomla! Day, this will be the third Joomla!Day organised this year following the NL and UK, and the Italian community is organising their first meetup.

OSCON

O'Reilly EuroOSCON Convention, September 18-21, 2006

The Joomla! project will showcase the upcoming 1.5 beta at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention at the Le Plaza Hotel in Brussels, Belgium on September 20th, 2006. This convention is one of the largest Open Source conventions in Europe and expects over 800+ attendees from around the world.

Joomla! 1.0.11

Joomla! 1.0.11 [ Sunbow ] is now available as of Monday 28th August 2006 24:00 UTC for download here and is being designated a critical security release.

All existing Joomla! users must upgrade to this version, due to several High Level vulnerabilities that affect all previous versions of Joomla!

We have always been fully committed to a security first principle and new initiatives have and will continue to be started to reinforce and continue this principle. Joomla! 1.0.11 highlights a redoubled effort to put security at the forefront of everyones lexicon.

Like any and all software, security is a continually evolving and constant battle between application developers and hackers. The increased security threats discovered in the Joomla!Universe indicate nothing more than an increasing usage of Joomla! throughout the world and thus an increasing interest from hackers.

It does however serve to remind everyone, both application developers and application users that security is an eternal vigil and one cannot rest.

We wanted everyone to see the buzz at the San Francisco LinuxWorld, so we set up a webcam for everyone to check things out.

Johan Janssens and Louis Landry are attending the Joomla! stand at the show. They guys have been inundated with visitors who want to know more about Joomla!
