This is one reason why new versions and releases of the Joomla! CMS and its extensions are made available by the Joomla! Project and 3rd party developers.
Another is to fix bugs which naturally creep in during the development process.
Two good reasons then for keeping your Joomla! CMS and its extensions up to date.

Are you using the latest release of Joomla! CMS?

- 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 - 3.4 are still supported by the Joomla! Project, but the last patch (3.4.8) for Joomla! 3.4 was a significant security release.
- Joomla! 3.5 and Joomla! 3.6 were released by the Joomla! Project in 2016.
