Which version of Joomla!® CMS should you use?
Frequently check for new releases - we tell you how in this article.
Some of these will be bug fix releases. Others will be SECURITY FIXES.
Since Joomla! 3 was launched in 2012 the average number of updates issued by the Joomla! Project has been 9 per year.
Approximately HALF of these updates have been SECURITY FIXES.
Are you using the latest release of Joomla! CMS?
We strongly recommend that you only ever run the latest release of the Joomla! CMS and any 3rd party extensions you have installed.
- Joomla! 1.0, 1.5 and 2.5 are no longer supported by the Joomla! Project.
- The Joomla! Project ended support for the Joomla! 2.5 series on 31st December 2014, meaning no more bug fixes, new features, or security updates.
- Joomla! 3.0 series was launched in 2013.
- The latest version is Joomla! 3.9. It was released in October 2018.
We advise you to keep up to date with news about Joomla! CMS and Joomla! extension releases.
