Joomla has just released version 1.5.9 of its popular CMS. This one has codename Vatani, as I already predicted in my post about Joomla 1.5.8. Vatani means 'nine' in Yaqui (a native American language). It's important to know that this is a security release. You should always upgrade when there is a new release, but for a security release this is even more imporant. So don't postpone and start your update today.

The new official site for Joomla Extensions, the Joomla Extensions Directory (JED) is online. The look has changed to get in line with the other new Joomla sites, but the structure of the new site hasn't changed that much,. This means people who are used to using the JED, will find their way on the new site in no time. In this article I mentioned a few points I didn't like about the old JED and I'm glad to see some of them are or will be a lot better in the new JED. Here are a few major changes:
The next version of Ulti Counter has been released: version 1.0.8. This new version of our Joomla Extension contains some small updates thanks to suggestions of the users:
Here's a bonus template for december. It's Christmas themed template and has just been added to our Free Joomla Templates section. Although it has a Christmas theme, it can be easily used for any site if the main image and Christmas logo are replaced. The template is now available for download.
