J! 3.6.0 was released about a week ago. If people have enabled the System - Joomla! Update Notification plugin (this was a new feature introduced in J! 3.5) they are probably receiving emails once or twice a day advising them to upgrade to J! 3.6.0. There are a three things you can do: you can ignore the emails, disable the plugin, or upgrade.

Since the announcement of J! 3.6.0 the Joomla forum has been filled with stories—mostly tales of woe—about difficulties that people have experienced. Like most people, one reads these stories to gauge the veracity of claims that people have made before taking that giant leap-of-faith and going ahead with the procedure oneself.

There are a couple of known issues but, for the most part, they are relatively insignificant.

1) Reports have been received that, following the upgrade to J! 3.6, the "Install From Folder" option is missing; I haven't encountered this problem myself but it has been addressed in J! 3.6.1.

2) The redirect on logout is not working; I can affirm that this is the case and it is supposed to the fixed in J! 3.6.1

Neither of these are showstoppers and neither are reasons not to upgrade.

Apparently there are over 400 improvements added to J! 3.6 . Although I haven't had the opportunity to experiment with all of these things (obviously), one of the most-anticipated ones has been a long-overdue upgrade to the jQuery library.

If you're wondering whether or not to take the plunge then check out J! 3.6. Make sure you have a good backup of your website(s), course. Happy Joomla-ing. B)

I thought it might be worthwhile writing this up as a fully "featured" article . ;)

As a follow-up, J! 3.6.1 was released the day before yesterday and it had a few teething problems. J! 3.6.2 has been released and seems to have fixed most of the previously reported errors, in particular the issue around the logout misdirection. :)
