The Joomla! Project has announced the release of Joomla! 4.2.2.
This is a bug fix release which addresses a bug affecting the operation of the Web Authentication plugin.
If you are still using an older version of Joomla! CMS with your website then be aware that the clock is ticking.
Between now and August 2023, Joomla! 3.10 users will only benefit form new security releases.
Joomla! Project support for Joomla! 3.10 ends completely in August 2023.
If you need help migrating your website to Joomla! 4.2, just ask.
The HTACCESS file included with the Joomla! 4.2 version of Joomla! CMS includes the following comment.
# If you are using an OpenLiteSpeed web server then any changes made to this file will
# not take effect until you have restarted the web server.
What is OpenLiteSpeed?
