In addition to Joomla 3.2 the Joomla! Project has released version 2.5.16 of its LTS (Long Term Support) series to address security issues and also Joomla 3.1.6 of its 3.1 series. All Joomla 3.1.5 sites should upgrade to version 3.1.6 or version 3.2. All 2.5 websites should upgrade to Joomla 2.5.16.

The CB Team has been very active during the Joomla 3.2 effort and has contributed to make Joomla better for everyone.

To address the new password storage feature introduced in Joomla 3.2, the CB Team has released CB 1.9.1 which is available from the Free Download area (login required).

CB 1.9.1 is a maintenance release with no new features except for Joomla 3.2 support.

CB 1.9.1 is also available from the new Joomla! Extension Finder on Joomla 3.2 sites. CB 1.9.1 is compatible and will work on all Joomla versions.

The CB Team is now back in full force to finalize CB 1.10 and continue working on CB 2.0.
