Joomla! 3.3.0 Released

Joomla! 3.3 - Do More

The Joomla! Project and the Production Leadership Team are proud to announce the release of Joomla! 3.2.4 and 3.3, the latest releases of the 3.x release series.

If you are currently running Joomla! 3.2 on a server with PHP 5.3.10 or later, we encourage you to update immediately to Joomla! 3.3 via either the one-click update or the update downloads available at http://www.joomla.org/download.html. For sites on servers with a version of PHP less than 5.3.10, 3.2.4 is the release for you. However, please talk to your host about updating to PHP 5.3.10+, which is easy to do. For other versions of the 3.x series, applying the update is recommended as soon as possible.

Note that in order to update directly to 3.3 via the core update component, you must be running 3.2.2 or later due to the raised minimum supported PHP version and the update system not supporting checking the server’s PHP version in older releases. Older 3.x releases will be prompted to update to 3.2.4 before being presented the 3.3 update.

How can you help Joomla! development?

There are a variety of ways in which you can get actively involved with Joomla! It doesn’t matter if you are a coder, an integrator, or merely a user of Joomla!. You can contact the Joomla! Community Development Manager, David Hurley, to get more information, or if you are ready you can jump right into the Joomla! Bug Squad.

The Joomla! Bug Squad is one of the most active teams in the Joomla! development process and is always looking for people (not just developers) that can help with sorting bug reports, coding patches and testing solutions. It’s a great way for increasing your working knowledge of Joomla!, and also a great way to meet new people from all around the world.

If you are interested, please read about us on the Joomla! Documentation Wiki and, if you wish to join, email Mark Dexter or Nick Savov, our Bug Squad co-coordinators.

You can also help Joomla! development by thanking those involved in the many areas of the process. In the past year, for example, over 1,100 bugs have been fixed by the Bug Squad.
