Joomla! 1.7 brings new update mechanism

The Joomla! development team has released version 1.7 of its open source PHP-based content management system (CMS). The major update is the project’s first release made within the new six-month release cycle that began with the release of Joomla 1.6 in January.

To improve the platform’s security, Joomla! 1.7 offers a new one-click version updating mechanism that allows users to update a site to the latest stable version with a single click. A built-in updater is also included for Joomla! and extensions. The developers hope that this will help users keep up to date with the latest version so that they are not vulnerable to any security holes found in previous versions.
