Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during week 26:

• Looking for Help with the Joomla 3 Launch
• OSM Goals for 2012
• Joomla 2.5.5 and 2.5.6 upgrade is now available
• Josetta 1.2.4 released

At J and Beyond 2012, I talked to Daniel Dimitrov, one of the excellent Joomla developers I have come to know during the last years. Hunched over the bar, we discussed all things Joomla, and he told me that he planned a series of Joomla related webinars. He felt there is a need for a masterclass type learning environment for those who want to learn more about Joomla.

As a developer, the most obvious for Daniel was to start by offering an Extension Development webinar. Since JAB, he's been working hard on the concept and now it's a reality!

You must have been exposed to many promotions by Joomla companies and chances are that ApeForest is the one executing them. 

They have been working behind the scenes in our community - representing commercial template clubs as well as extension developers and helping them with their marketing.

And then there was 2.5.6...

After a lot of commotion online, the Joomla Production Leadership Team (PLT) released yet another version of Joomla yesterday. Version 2.5.6 fixes 12 issues that appeared in 2.5.5.

I have not seen any trouble with 2.5.5 myself, but it caused trouble for some site owners.

Joomla 2.5.5 released

Yesterday, the Joomla project released version 2.5.5 of our favorite CMS. This version contains quite a few new features, most of which will save you time when working on Joomla sites.

You should also note that if you're on Joomla 2.5.4, this version should be updated using the new Joomla Update component, and not the Extensions Manager. Read on for step-by-step instructions on how to do this.
