One of the latest components is AceFTP. This is fast and lightweight file manager component.
First of all I have to mention today’s update of Joomla to version 2.5.2. This is a security release (Two Security Issues Fixed). The update process in Joomla is very easy (almost one click in Extension Manager) – so you don’t have to update core files by FTPing them.
Last year was for the administrators of websites based on Joomla very interesting but also extremely stressful.
Previous versions of Joomla (notably 1.0.x, 1.5.x, and 1.7) required multiple steps to implement spam protection on your Joomla site. To enable this protection on the Registration or Contact pages, you had to download, install and configure a captcha plugin. Beginning with Joomla 2.5, you can quickly enable Captcha (ReCaptcha) from within the default Joomla installation!
Today Joomla team announces availability of Joomla 2.5. Along with new features such as advanced search and automatic notification of Joomla core and extension updates, the Joomla CMS for the first time includes multi-database support with the addition of Microsoft SQL Server.
