Joomla! 3.3 - Do More

The Joomla! Project and the Production Leadership Team are proud to announce the release of Joomla! 3.3.4. This is a security release for the 3.x series of Joomla! and addresses two security issues. A 3.2.5 release is also available for users who are still using Joomla! 3.2 which addresses these security issues.

Security Release

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! 3.3.4 via either the one-click update or the update downloads available at

Note that in order to update directly to 3.3.4 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 3.2.5 before being presented the 3.3.4 update.

What's in 3.3.4?

Due to the shift from JoomlaCode to the Joomla! Issue Tracker as our issue tracking platform, a consolidated list of tracker issues is not available for this release unfortunately. The consolidated code diff can be found at which includes links to most of the tracker items fixed during this release cycle.

Security Issues Fixed

For known issues with the 3.3.4 release, see the Version 3.3.4 FAQ in the documentation site.

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 Joomla! Developer Network.
