The Joomla! developers have released an update to the Joomla! 1.5 software.
This is a security release and fixes a known security issue. All users of Joomla! 1.5 need to update to this new version.
If you are not using Joomla! 1.5 or Joomla! 2.5 you need to upgrade to one of these version, as other versions have gone end-of-life. For more information see our post at:
Joomla! has released version 2.5.3 of their popular CMS program. This is a security release. Information and release notes are available at:
This release fixes two high priority security issues in Joomla! 2.5.2. All users are encouraged to upgrade.
The updated version of Joomla! is not yet available in Softaculous on our servers. As soon as it becomes available I will update this post. I just wanted to make the announcement regarding this update because it does affect the security of your Joomla! based website.
