Joomla! is one of the most powerful Open Source Content Management Systems on the planet. It is used all over the world for everything from simple websites to complex corporate applications. Joomla! is easy to install, simple to manage, and reliable.
Joomla! 1.0.12 [ Sunfire ] is available as of Monday the 25th of December 2006 1:00 UTC for download here.
We suggest that all Joomla! users upgrade to this version.
Joomla! 1.0.12 features:
- 140+ General Bug Fixes
- Several low level security fixes
- A full security audit of SQL queries
- SSL switchover support
this release contains several security fixes, as they are of a low
level nature, this release is still being characterized as a Stability
Release. If you are running a version of Joomla! older than 1.0.11,
you should upgrade immediately to at least Joomla! 1.0.11 as that
release addressed several important security issues. If you are using
Joomla! 1.0.11, we recommend that you upgrade to 1.0.12 as it addresses
several long standing bugs and several low level security issues.
We are also pleased to announce the creation of a new Security Announcements Forum.
As the name suggests, this forum will be used for security
announcements for the Joomla! core and third party extensions. We
strongly encourage that all Joomla! users register on forum.joomla.org and subscribe
to this forum to ensure that they receive notification of important
security issues as soon as possible. We also encourage you to do same
for all third-party extensions you use, where available.
