JoomlaDay UK 2017 will be at the Ilec Conference Centre in London on Saturday the 8th of July. More details about the venue can be found here.

We will be running a mixed format including Keynotes, Sessions, Workshops and an opportunity to take the Administrator Exam.

In partnership with OSTraining, Joomla! launched a new site where you can take video classes to learn how to install, manage, keep your site secure, and more.

In this post I’ll share with you the 5 video classes you can watch for free.

These professional video classes will help you to learn the basics, and even extend your knowledge about Joomla SEO, security and multilingual sites.
a brief summary of the Joomla! videos you can watch from here.

At Chichester the following items were up for discussion.

The Joomla! Project is pleased to announce the availability of Joomla! CMS 3.7 Release Candidate 1. Community members are asked to download and install the package in order to provide quality assurance for the forthcoming 3.7 release.

Joomla! 3 is the latest major release of the Joomla! CMS, with 3.7 the eight support release in this series. Please note that going from 3.6 to 3.7 is a one-click upgrade and is NOT a migration. The same is true is for any subsequent versions in the 3 series of the CMS. That being said, please do not upgrade any of your production sites to the release candidate version as release candidate is ONLY intended for testing and there is no upgrade path from a Release Candidate.

Recently it has been revealed that over the past 5 months Cloudflare, a popular CDN provider, has had a data leak allowing potentially sensitive data to become accessible to other users, and more importantly search engines.

Cloudflare has worked to resolve the issue on their systems, and the large search engines have been working hard over the last few days to try and remove this data from their caches; however, there is a chance that some data that was stored on some Joomla! sites that also use Cloudflare services may have been compromised.

Although this is not related to a specific Joomla! security issue, we would like to explain to Joomla! users exactly what you can do to help secure your site if you use Cloudflare and might be affected by this attack.

Joomla! is proud to present to you a series of Joomla! video courses. Here you can learn everything from the basics to more advanced subjects such as creating a multilingual web site and keeping your site up to date and secure. The classes are provided by OSTraining and new classes will be added every few months.

During the latest release of Joomla! 3.6.1 an issue emerged because of a security fix. 3.6.1 introduced a CSRF token check to the Joomla! Update component as an extra level of security to fix a Medium Level security issue. 3.6.0 down to 2.5.4 (every Joomla! release with the update component) will hit an issue with failing to pass the CSRF token check because those versions don't generate the needed token to pass the check.

Therefore we have had to make some emergency decisions:

In order to respect the terms of long standing CLT members, and to allow them to step down as planned, the CLT is looking for people willing to take up temporary positions within the team whilst the project is still in transition.

What is the CLT?

The Joomla! Project and the Production Leadership Team are proud to announce the release of Joomla! 3.6 as the latest in the 3.x series.
Joomla! 3.6 introduces more than 400 improvements, including many features which make administration of Joomla! Web sites easier and more feature-rich, as well as many UX (user experience) improvements.
