Joomla 3.3 is just around the corner.

An important change is that the minimum supported version of PHP will be PHP 5.3.10. Users who are unable to update to 3.3 due to the new PHP requirements are able to use the one click-click update, once they can update to PHP 5.3.10. You can quickly check this from your Joomla System – System information menu – last PHP Information tab.

The main features/changes of Joomla 3.3 are:

  • PHP 5.3.10 and above is now required
  • stronger password hashing storage
  • microdata implementation for Joomla content opens the door to better search engine experience
  • Replaces MooTools based JavaScript with jQuery equivalents
  • new cloud storage API
