Joomla 5.0.1 and 4.4.1 Released: Enhancing Security and Fixing Bugs
The Joomla! Project recently announced the release of Joomla 5.0.1 and 4.4.1, which are primarily focused on security enhancements and bug fixes
for the 5.x and 4.x series of Joomla. This release underscores Joomla's commitment to accessible web design and integrates values of inclusiveness, simplicity, and security into a more robust open-source web platform. Key highlights of Joomla 5.0.1 include: Security Fixes: Addressing the exposure of environmental variables. Bug Fixes and Improvements: This includes fixes to SVG display in media manager list view, enhancements in custom fields for finder indexing, mail template notices, and improvements in the messenger view. Additionally, it addresses issues in the CLI installer, TinyMCE editor, and user field, along with several language and code style improvements.
Joomla 4.4.1, while not introducing new features, is crucial for enabling a smoother upgrade path from Joomla 4.x to Joomla 5.x. For those looking to upgrade, Joomla 4.4.x to 5.x is described as an upgrade rather than a migration, with most extensions working with the new Behaviour - Backward Compatibility Plugin enabled. Downloading and Installation: Joomla 5.0.1 can be downloaded for new installations, with detailed instructions and technical requirements available on the Joomla website. Joomla 4.4.1 can be downloaded for upgrades from previous versions. Support for Developers and Users: Extension Developers: A growing manual is available to help developers adapt to changes in Joomla 5.
Community Involvement: Opportunities for involvement in Joomla's development, whether as a coder, integrator, or user, are available. The Joomla! Bug Squad and CMS Release Team are among the most active teams seeking volunteers. Documentation: Tutorials and documentation for Joomla 5 are available, with an invitation for developers to contribute to its expansion and updating. The release of Joomla 5.0.1 is a testament to the dedicated work of numerous volunteers, and the Joomla team extends a heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to this release.
