Joomla! 2.5.10 Released

Editor's note: Joomla 2.5.11 was released shortly after 2.5.10, which corrects some issues with 2.5.10 for some sites.  Please upgrade to Joomla 2.5.11 instead.

The Joomla Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Joomla 2.5.10. This is a security release. The Production Leadership Team's goal is to continue to provide regular, frequent updates to the Joomla community. Learn more about Joomla! development at the Developer Network.

Joomla 3 is the latest major release of the Joomla CMS, with Joomla 3.1 the second short term support release in this series.  Please note that going from Joomla 3.0 to 3.1 is a one-click upgrade and is NOT a migration.  The same is true is for any subsequent versions in the Joomla 3 series.  That being said, please do not upgrade any of your production sites to the beta version as beta is ONLY intended for testing.

What is this release for?

This is a beta release and not for use on production sites.

Extension developers are encouraged to work with this release in order to prepare extensions for the General Availability release of Joomla 3.1, though there shouldn't be any backward compatibility issues.
