2.5.3 is the current version of Joomla at the time of this writing. And as I wrote about last week, this latest version contains two important security fixes. Still, the small version badges (icons) showing supported Joomla versions are plastered across the Joomla Extensions Directory and developer's web sites.
The bad thing about showing these badges is that they give an impression that Joomla 1.6 and 1.7 are still supported versions. They are not. None of those versions are updated anymore, and they should not be used on any site.
But what about security updates, then? That's easy: Use version 2.5.3 (and later). That's the path to follow.

I recently got the question: "What is the risk of not migrating my Joomla 1.5 site to a newer version?".
That's a really good question, as the task of migrating to Joomla 2.5 can seem like a daunting one. Nonetheless, there are several compelling reasons to migrate your site from 1.5 when it reaches end-of-life in April 2012.
On Friday, the first ever Joomla! Night was held in Stockholm, Sweden. The event took place in the offices of .SE, the organization in charge of the top-domain for Sweden (.se).
The theme of the Joomla Night was "Joomla at the edge of innovation".
To explore the subject, the organizers had put together a diverse team of speakers. One can say it was a bit controversial. Still, I think it was good to see three different approaches to Joomla and open source, on the same night.
In a few weeks, I'm going to attend the first Swedish Joomla! Night. It takes place in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden.
The theme of the Joomla! Night is 'Joomla: at the edge of innovation Build your website with a cutting edge CMS'.
The talks will center around this subject, and they even get a visit from the President :)
Yesterday, JCE 2.0 "Stable" for Joomla! 1.5 and Joomla! 1.6 was released. Ryan Demmer, the developer of JCE, extends a big thank you to everyone who helped bring JCE 2.0 to this milestone.
Please note that "stable" does not necessarily mean bug free but rather refers to the end of the development process for this version. Ryan asks you to please continue to post bug reports and issues you find in the Forum.
Ryan will be updating installation and other documentation this week and will also be posting the first in a series of "Developer Walk through" videos soon.
