New York, NY, - August 28, 2014 - Joomla, one of the world’s most popular open source content management systems (CMS) used for everything from websites and blogs to custom apps and Intranets, announced today that SiteGround web hosting company is the RFP winner for the ongoing official Joomla Demo and the new Free Joomla Hosting option. The partnership is expected to increase the number of new users to Joomla by making it easier to get started.

The opportunity to create a temporary Joomla Demo account has been available at demo.joomla.org since 2010, but included only a short 30-day free trial. With SiteGround as the new official host, the trial period will be extended to 90-days to give users more time to evaluate all the features of Joomla CMS. Additionally the sign up process will be faster and easier. This new version of the Official Joomla Demo will replace the current offer in September 2014. The Free Joomla Hosting option is expected to be launched later this year and it will allow the users to create and maintain a free Joomla website for unlimited time. The aim of both the extended Joomla Demo and the new Free Joomla Hosting is to make the start with the Joomla CMS easier and to increase the number of people, who choose Joomla as their favorite website platform.

Joomla! 3.3 - Do More

The Joomla! Project and the Production Leadership Team are proud to announce the release of Joomla! 3.3.3. This is a maintenance release for the 3.x series of Joomla! and addresses issues introduced in 3.3.2 with the e-mail cloaking code and user configuration options not applying correctly.

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! 3.3.3 via either the one-click update or the update downloads available at www.joomla.org/download.html.

Note that in order to update directly to 3.3.3 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 3.3.3 update.

Joomla! 2.5

The Joomla Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Joomla 2.5.24.  This is a maintenance release for the 2.5 series of Joomla! and addresses two issues found with the e-mail cloaking code introduced into the 2.5.23 release.

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