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.
