Latest web app updates: 12-12-13 edition

Written by Tyler Jacobson on December 12, 2013

MacHighway - Mac web hostingMake sure your web apps, such as WordPress, Joomla, and phpBB, are always updated to the latest version. Quite often, updates to web apps contain essential security fixes rather than feature upgrades. Keeping your apps up to date helps keep your site from getting hacked.

Below is our  list of popular web apps and their latest version number. If you don’t see yours here, please be sure check the developer’s site to ensure you’re running the latest version. If it’s been a year or more since the last official update from the developer, we strongly encourage you to migrate your content to a web app that is being actively updated.

Also, don’t forget to delete web apps you are no longer using.
