I am looking forward to the features included in this update, especially the multi-file upload in the media manager.

One problem, however. When I purge cache and search for updates in Joomla 2.5.4, it's not finding anything! Does the one-click updater not function for this release?

My question: Is joomla 1.5.x vulnerable about
[20120601] - Core - Privilege Escalation
And
[20120602] - Core - Information Disclosure
Or isn't vulnerable? Thank you!

I've just run the auto-updater in the admin of 2.5.4 and it's crashed the site!

Hi, I had the same problem, here is the solution. Thanks to Luis Murcia at absolutejoomla.com.

in base.php from row 85, replace

Code: Select all

public function registerEvent($event, $handler)
{
 if ($this->dispatcher instanceof JDispatcher)
 {
  $this->dispatcher->register($event, $handler);
 }

 return $this;
}
With

Code: Select all

public function registerEvent($event, $handler)
{
  $dispatcher = JDispatcher::getInstance();
  $dispatcher->register($event, $handler);

}

This is pretty important of a bug. They should take the release down until they patch this up. Shouldn't take more than a few minutes.

This is not a permanent fix (or the maybe best way to do it) but it does the trick for now, and it must be fixed by Joomla team in future releases...

Dear Steven!

Could you please help me? I am a totally beginner, started last week, made this automatic upgrade w/o backup of course...

I made the change you proposed, but still have this message (same as before):

Fatal error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object in /home/szentlas/public_html/modules/mod_menu/helper.php on line 100

Many thanks in advance!

I just sent an e-mail out to the CMS development group mailing list. Maybe they will read it and take action.

Sorry I dont think I can help you with that, that's another error. If you are referring to Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in /home/xxxx/xxxx/libraries/joomla/application/base.php on line 87

I suggest you check that you did a correct replace and not missing any bracket

I forwarded your email to the Joomla Bug Squad, as that is the best place to resolve this. You can follow the thread at https://groups.google.com/d/topic/jooml ... discussion

Which auto updater ?

com_installer reached by Extensions >>> Update tab
or
com_joomlaupdate reached from the Components menu(also the one linked to from the update icon in the CP)
???

The one I clicked on was the update icon in the CP, yes.
"Checking update status". "Joomla! 2.5.5 Update now!" and red exclamation point.

Have just that com_installer (Extensions >>> update tab) is not intended to show Joomla updates anymore.

@stevetm Good job on a fix, but the patch is not quite identical. Rather than changing the file that is in the error message, the fix is going in a different file. This will have ramifications later if you use other parts of the system.

Hi all, updating locally a fresh install of Joomla 2.5.4 to 2.5.5 by extension manager, I get this fatal error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined method JInstaller::parseXMLInstallFile() in C:\wamp\www\Joomla_2.5.4-Stable-Full_Package\libraries\joomla\installer\adapters\component.php on line 1996
Then, trying to install again the same update package, it install successfully.

I use WampServer
PHP Version 5.3.8
