Joomla! 1.0.6 Security Release available shortly

Joomla! 1.0.6 will be released on Sunday January 15, 2006.

This will be a Security Release.  This means it contains several Security Fixes:
  • 7 `Low Level` Threat fixes
  • 50+ non-critical bug fixes
Although none of these Security Threats are seen as critical, we recommend people to upgrade to this version.
If you are using SEF you are advised to upgrade to this version as it fixes a problem with SEF handling in 1.0.5

1.0.6 will be available as a Patch Upgrade package, with only affected files or as a Full Distribution package.

At the moment 1.0.6 has been packaged as Beta and distributed to official Joomla! Support groups for Testing prior to its release on Sunday.

More information about what exactly has been fixed in 1.0.6 will be available when 1.0.6 is released
