This release is maintenance release, we recommend that users perform a Joomla upgrade in order to take advantage of the fixes that have been released.

Joomla 3.3.3 Stable has been released.

The Joomla! Project and the Production Leadership Team are proud to announce the release of Joomla! 3.3.3. This is a maintenance release for the 3.x series of Joomla! and addresses issues introduced in 3.3.2 with the e-mail cloaking code and user configuration options not applying correctly.

If you are currently running a Joomla! release on a server with PHP 5.3.10 or later, we encourage you to update immediately to Joomla! 3.3.3 via either the one-click update or the update downloads available at http://www.joomla.org/download.html.

Note that in order to update directly to 3.3.3 via the core update component, you must be running 3.2.2 or later due to the raised minimum supported PHP version and the update system not supporting checking the server’s PHP version in older releases. Older 3.x releases will be prompted to update to 3.2.4 before being presented the 3.3.3 update.

What's in 3.3.3?

A total of 4 tracker items are resolved with this release.

For known issues with the 3.3.3 release, see the Version 3.3.3 FAQ in the documentation site.

The Production Leadership Team's goal is to continue to provide regular, frequent updates to the Joomla community. Learn more about Joomla! development at the Joomla! Developer Network.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Joomla 3.3.3 and higher requires PHP 5.3.10 for server that have yet to be updated the Joomla 3.2.4 bridge release is also available which can be used with PHP versions 5.3.1 through 5.3.9. It is highly recommended that servers are update to the latest version of PHP 5.3 for best performance, security and compatibility (current release is PHP 5.3.28)

This release is a maintenance and feature release, we highly recommend that users perform a Joomla upgrade in order to take advantage of the fixes and features that have been released.

PS: We provide a Joomla Upgrade Service alongside our other Joomla services to help take the stress out of updating your CMS and give you peace of mind that it is running the most current version. Find out more about our Joomla Upgrade Service here.
