Yesterday saw the release of Joomla 2.5.4. As always, we recommend that you upgrade your site to the latest version of without delay. You can upgrade to this version easily using the built-in upgrade system found in the Joomla administrative control panel. In addition to 157 bug fixes, this version patches 2 low level security issues and introduces three new features. Full details on Joomla 2.5.4 can be found on the official press release at Joomla.org.

Translation is one of the remaining technological hurdles in delivering the web to the widest possible audience. For years, Joomla and Mambo users have struggled to internationalize their web sites with third-party solutions. But with the release of Joomla 2.5, multilingual capabilities are now built right into the Joomla core. While third-party solutions are no longer necessary, translating Joomla content remains a tedious, error-prone and time-consuming task for web site administrators. This is especially true when one considers the management and training of medium-to-large sized translation teams.

Joomla! have just released version 2.5.3. The functionality of Joomla! 2.5 made me feel very interested, and today I'm writing a blog post about the new features. My blog might not mention all of the new features, but I'll try to write this blog within my knowledge.
There are many articles written about the new features in Joomla! 2.5. I will go straight to the important functions which I think are very useful for users in Joomla! 2.5. This blog post includes two parts: one for Beginners and one for Advanced Joomla! Users.

Facebook is now so popular, most people have their own account. And when you visit many pages, you can see Facebook like box where they invite you to follow them. You also can see how many people liked them. Do you want to add fan box code on your page? Just follow our guidelines, and you can do it not only on Joomla website 1.5! but also on 2.5!. There are 2 parts:
* Part 1 is for people who only have a Facebook account; you need to create your own fan page.
* Part 2 is for people who already have a fan page. You can start to add fan box code right now.

After almost 3 years of the previous design, it was time for an update. A more "practical" update, almost a real-world site. And this is the result :)
As we announced on Twitter some months ago and just recently, this new demo website will be fully open-sourced so that people can learn by example. But there's another reason as well... Once the site is released as an installable package with its K2 setup and sample data ready, we will launch a small contest for the best redesigns of this website. The goal is simple. Keep the same sample data and work your magic.
