Joomla! 3.4 - Do More

The Joomla! Project and the Production Leadership Team are proud to announce the release of Joomla! 3.4.1. This is a maintenance release for the 3.x series of Joomla! and addresses issues introduced in 3.4.0 with installing certain extensions and content languages access.

What's in 3.4.1?

The 3.4 release introduces new features into the CMS such as improved front end module editing, decoupling of weblinks, composer integration, Google new reCaptcha and security improvements by implementing UploadShield code which can detect most malicious uploads by examining their filenames and file contents. Please note: Due to technical reasons we have had to disable the Install from Web Service. We are working to get it back online as soon as possible. To find extensions please use the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Thanks to the hard work of over 50 different volunteer contributors, nearly 150 bugs have also been resolved with the 3.4 release of the Joomla! CMS. See the list of fixed GitHub issues for details of the tracker items fixed.

For known issues with the 3.4.1 release, see the Version 3.4.1 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.
