Joomla! 2.5.6 is now available
Joomla!® 2.5.6 is now available for download.
This release is the latest in the 2.5 series, and includes updates and fixes.
If you are still using Joomla! 1.5 you should have a look at all the new features that's available in 2.5
Official support for the 1.5 series is said to end later this year, and it would be a good idea to start making plans to upgrade to the latest Long Term Support version (2.5)
Those who are still on 1.6.x or 1.7.x are strongly encouraged to Update to 2.5 without delay, since none the 1.6 and 1.7 series are no longer supported, and not secure.
Further new features, that many will appreciate, were also added since 2.5.5

Joomla! 1.7.0 released
As promised by the Joomla! Production Leadership Team, Joomla!® 1.7.0 was released in July 2011 (6 months after the release of 1.6).
Both 1.6 and 1.7 are Short Term Support releases, and the next release will be a Long Term Support release.
For most people the upgrade from 1.6 to 1.7 will only one click, and most 1.6 Extensions should be compatible with 1.7
Joomla 1.5.x is a Long Term Support release, and will still be supported into 2012, but for new web sites, we will be using Joomla 1.7

With South Africa's Local Elections this month, the politicians are making sure they are also active on the Internet.
