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!

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.

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.
