Joomla 2.5.7 Released
Joomla! version 2.5.7 has been released. 2.5.7 is a security release so all users of 2.5.6 are advised to update as soon as possible.
2.5.7 adds support for installing language packs from the extension manager and fixes a number of cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. The default version of TinyMCE is also updated to 22.214.171.124.
This version also addresses that heinous security flaw of emailing passwords to users. The default remains the same (passwords will be emailed) but administrators can now open the configuration page for com_users and disable this behaviour! Excellent news!
