Joomla 2.5.8 has been released.

Notable in this build is the inclusion of a security patch for a clickjacking vulnerability affecting versions 2.5.7 and earlier versions of 2.5.

6 items from the bug tracker were also addressed.

Full details can be found in the official 2.5.8 release announcement at joomla.org

Since this release improves security, we recommend that all users perform an Joomla upgrade immediately.

A Joomla upgrade can be performed directly in the Joomla administrative backend. For users with multiple sites, we recommend updating all your sites from Watchful.li — a centralized site manager for Joomla.

Josetta® is a Joomla translation manager focused primarily on facilitating content translation on the frontend of your web site. This is where translation teams and others who lack experience with the Joomla backend should most often be working.

Not surprisingly then, we have been steadily making advancements in this area.

For example, in the latest release we introduced the new Joomla multilingual editor that dramatically increases the efficiency of adding translations to your web site.

However, we have had some requests from site administrators for backend access to Josetta® so that they can also make use of the powerful Joomla translation features.

To address these feature requests, I am happy to announce the immediately availability of the Josetta® Jump module.

Next week we’ll be in San Jose at the first-ever Joomla World Conference leading a discussion about Joomla use in enterprise environments.

Before we finalize our talk, We’d love to know how and why Joomla users around the world choose this platform.

Please take a few moments to complete this 2 minute survey.

Today we are proud to announce the immediate availability of sh404SEF® 3.6.4 (build 1481), which is fully compatible with Joomla! 2.5.

Release notes: Maintenance release, Google analytics bug. Also of note in recent releases is the use of a database and caching library that can vastly speed up a site if using memcache or APC cache server for SEF url caching and for Joomla! general database operations. The Open Graph data tags have been updated to reflect Facebook's new documentation. In addition to this, several mobile sites improvements have been made.

Today we are proud to announce the immediate availability of JCal Pro® 3.2.1 (build 1471), which is fully compatible with Joomla! 2.5!

Today we are proud to announce the immediate availability of sh404SEF® 3.6.3 (build 1478), which is fully compatible with Joomla! 2.5.

Release notes: Maintenance release, a few bugs and checks for various uncommon situations. Also of note in this release is the use of a database and caching library that can vastly speed up a site if using memcache or APC cache server for SEF url caching and for Joomla! general database operations. The Open Graph data tags have been updated to reflect Facebook's new documentation. In addition to this, several mobile sites improvements have been made.

The ability to translate your Joomla multilingual web site without the need for a third-party add-on — a feature first introduced in Joomla 1.6 — is widely recognized as one of the most important steps in the development of this content management system.

In practice however, keeping track of translated articles and properly associating them the original language with is very challenging. To solve this problem, we created and released Josetta® — the Joomla translation manager — back in March.

Today we are proud to announce Josetta® version 1.3 that includes a major improvement that makes Joomla translation even easier.

If you haven’t noticed, the first-ever Joomla World Conference is fast-approaching — Nov. 16-18 — and excitement is building in the Joomla community.

As we mentioned previously, the keynote speakers have already been announced and look very compelling. I’m happy to report that in addition to sponsoring the event, we’ll be attending and speaking as well.

At noon on Nov. 17, I will deliver a talk entitled Is Joomla 3 ready for enterprise?

Yannick Gaultier, the author of sh404SEF® and Josetta®, will also be in attendance. He is giving a lightning talk on multilingual Joomla web sites with Josetta®.

On Oct. 3, 2012 we were honored to speak at Mozcation Milwaukee, a local SEO event organized by the good folks over at SEOMoz.

Mozcation Milwaukee was an excellent event — held at the gorgeous Harley Davidson Museum — and Rand Fishkin and his crew gave exciting talks and brought new insights for the 200+ crowd who attended.

On September 27, 2012 the Joomla project released the much-anticipated 3.0 version of the CMS.

Although many additions and improvements have been made, the most significant change in this build is the adoption of the Bootstrap framework from Twitter.

Twitter Bootstrap instantly adds mobile responsiveness to Joomla — the ability to adjust the layout of the web site based on the size of the screen — making it one of the first open-source content management systems to become mobile-ready.

While Bootstrap adds enormous and clear benefits for site builders, add-on developers can also build their extensions using the Bootstrap elements baked into Joomla. This reduces development time and improves standards and usability for consumers.

Given the rise and popularity of mobile and responsive web site design, you might be tempted to upgrade a previous Joomla version to Joomla 3.0.

However, you must consider a number of factors to decide if Joomla 3.0 is right for you.

Today we are proud to announce the immediate availability of Josetta® 1.3.0 build 429, which is fully compatible with Joomla! 2.5!
