Over the last weeks we have sent mixed messages about Joomla! 3.7 and what will be included in the final version. Without having an alpha/beta version published this is always complicated but with this post we are trying to clear the air.
As part of our post-release review process for the 3.6.4 release, the Joomla! Security Strike Team has identified and confirmed an additional side effect of the issue resolved in security advisory 20161002 (CVE-2016-8869) and as such we have revised our assessment of this issue.
Joomla! 3.6.4 is now available. This is a security release for the 3.x series of Joomla! which addresses three critical security vulnerabilities and a bug fix for two-factor authentication. We strongly recommend that you update your sites immediately.
This release only contains the security fixes and bug fix; no other changes have been made compared to the Joomla! 3.6.3 release.
