The Joomla! Project announces the immediate availability of Joomla! 1.6.5. This is not a security release. This release corrects an issue in the Extension Manager Update program that, in rare instances, can cause files to be deleted during a Joomla version update. For this reason, it is strongly recommended that you update to version 1.6.5 prior to updating to version 1.7.0, which will be released on July 19.

If you have experienced problems using the Extension Manager Update with prior versions of 1.6, we recommend that you install the 1.6.5 update package by unpacking the archive file. At that point, you will have the fix installed and you can then use the Extension Manager Update for future updates, including 1.7.0. As always, we recommend that you have a current backup of your site before doing any update.

Please note that, starting with this release, we are providing two update packages only. One is for the most recent release (in this case, 1.6.4 to 1.6.5). The other is for the oldest release (in this case, 1.6.0 to 1.6.5). If you are running version 1.6.4, use the 1.6.4 to 1.6.5 update. If you are running any older 1.6 version (1.6.1, 1.6.2, or 1.6.3), simply use the 1.6.0 to 1.6.5 update package. This will work for any of these versions. It may copy some files that don't need to be copied, but this doesn't hurt anything and ensures that all of your Joomla files are current. We hope this will simplify the update process.

The Production Leadership Team's goal is to continue to provide regular, frequent updates to the Joomla community. Learn more about Joomla! developement at the Developer Site.

The Joomla! Project is pleased to announce the availability of Joomla! 1.7 Beta 1 for download. This is the first release made within the new six-month release cycle that started with the delivery of Joomla 1.6 in January 2011.

What is this release for?

There are several goals for this release:

  1. To allow advance testing of sites and custom extensions so that site administrators and developers can report any problems before the final release.
  2. To raise awareness that the end of the current development cycle is fast approaching.
  3. To allow testing of the upgrade from version 1.6.4 to 1.7.0.

What is this release NOT for?

This beta version of Joomla 1.7 is not suitable for production sites. It should be used for testing only.

The Joomla! Project announces the immediate availability of Joomla! 1.6.4. This is a security release. This release corrects four security issues and fixes an issue relating to version upgrades.

Note that version 1.7.0 is scheduled to be released on 19 July 2011. Users planning to upgrade from version 1.6 to 1.7 will need to be running version 1.6.4 in order to upgrade to version 1.7.0.

Important Note: A security fix was made for the Category List layouts for articles, contacts, newsfeeds, and weblinks as well as the Featured Contact list. If you have created a template override for one of these layouts based on the core layout, your file could contain this security issue. Please see the release FAQ for more information.
