New BitNami Joomla! 2.5.0 released

We are happy to announce the recently released Joomla! 2.5.0 version is now available as a BitNami stack. This Joomla! version is a security and long-term-support (LTS) release that will be supported for at least 18 months. You can download a native installer, a virtual machine or deploy it directly to the Amazon cloud. BitNami stacks simplify the deployment and testing of open source web apps and are an ideal method to test the latest releases of your favorite projects, including Joomla!

There are a lot of improvements in this release. Some highlights include:

  • Support for additional databases, including Microsoft SQL server.
  • Notifications for Joomla! and module updates.
  • New much improved search engine
We will work on adding support for multiple languages in future releases. Enjoy!
