The Joomla Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Joomla 2.5.16. 2.5.16 addresses three critical issues reported after the release of 2.5.15 earlier today. Aside from the links to the download packages, the text of the rest of this article is the same as that of today's 2.5.15 release.
For users on 2.5.15 who are unable to update to 2.5.16 via the core update component, please download the patch package from http://joomlacode.org/gf/download/frsrelease/18859/91475/Joomla_2.5.15_to_2.5.16-Stable-Patch_Package.zip and install it via your Extension Manager to update.
This is a security release addressing three security issues. The Production Leadership Team's goal is to continue to provide regular, frequent updates to the Joomla community. Learn more about Joomla! development at the Developer Site.
