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.

Just when you thought it was time for a Joomla! release increment, we've decided to take FIVE in one go!
During the past few months, we've been discussing the versioning of the forthcoming Joomla! release. We have decided to call the upcoming beta release "Joomla! 1.5 Beta", not Joomla! 1.1 Beta.
The sheer volume of changes in the Joomla! core (Joomla! framework) made a minor point (.1) increment inconsistent with the amount of work undertaken. While it may not be obvious by simply looking at release dates, today's Joomla! core has multiple technology shifts under the engine.
