The latest news affecting Joomla website owners and website developers.
The popular Joomla administrative tool, Admin Tools, has been updated to include new features and address issues from the previous release, 2.2.a2. This extension allows Joomla website administrators the ability to perform certain back end tasks such as, "fix your files' and directories' permissions, protect your administrator directory with a password, change your database prefix, and set a secure Super Administrator ID." While this is an Alpha release, the developer has stated that this version is "stable enough for every day use." They go on to say that, "it's the only version of Admin Tools which you can use on a Joomla! 2.5 site." To put the community at ease, they note that they are using this new Alpha release on their own production site.
