Great! Joomla 3.2.2 Stable has been released. This has been a great effort with contributions from over 30 volunteers. A heartfelt thanks goes out to all contributors.
This release is a bug fix release, but we recommend that users perform a Joomla upgrade in order to take advantage of the fixes that have been released.
A Joomla upgrade can be performed directly in the Joomla administrative backend.
One of the best new features in the latest version of Joomla is Content History.
Enable within Article Manager
First step, go to "Content" -> "Article Manager" ->"Options"
After that, go to "Editing Layout" tab;
In "Save History" coloum, choose "Yes";
Adjust the "Maximum Versions" setting to your preference. This sets the number of latest revisions to save for the article.
And click "Save & Close".
Test the Feature
For make test feature, enter an article, make a few revisions, then click "Save". Make a few more revisions, then click "Save" again. Finally, click on the "Versions" button to see the saved changes.
In the above screenshot everything's working. I can now preview a revision, restore it, compare it to another, keep it on, and delete it.Remember, the function of Keep On/Forever option is to store that version indefinitely. We using an example in this tutorial because it is an easy way to explain this feature.
Do you know about the function of the Maximum Versions setting? If you set that to 5, then 5 versions of that article are saved. On the 6th one, the 1st version gets deleted so that there are still 5 versions left total. What if you want to keep the first one or any other article? That's where the Keep On setting comes into play. If you enable it for that article version, it won't automatically get deleted from the list, but rather will remain there untouched. It's basically a "lock" feature that prevents deletion.

Joomla is one of the widly used software that allows you to create a professional-looking and user friendly website in a verry short time. And in Joomla Web development, PSD to Joomla conversion is an inevitable process.
Any PSD file can be converted into a Joomla Template by following these three easy steps. Simply go through the following illustrated steps for the PSD to Joomla conversion :
- Slicing the PSD:
First, you must slice the PSD file into multiple layers viz. header, footer, content or navigation part. Slicing should be done with a keen eye because it creates the base for your website. You should also work on the parts which you don’t want to duplicate using the CSS such as the images, logo and the buttons. So slice out all your images and save them in a separate folder called images.
- Conversion and Styling:
- HTML Conversion : Now next thing in conversion is the coding of image files in a proper semantic form. It should be kept in mind that your conversion is well structured with a table-less Search Engine friendly semantics.
- CSS Styling : In another step you have to start developing your Cascading Style Sheet popularly called as CSS. While designing a CSS, you should check whether it is meeting all the requirements of website.
- Joomla Integration:
Here, you need to be verry consious in order to avoid any inconsistency in the data. It would be better to hire a professional Joomla designer who has all the required expertise to carry out this conversion in an efficient manner. So, now, create a relevant folder and directories required for your website. Create a Template_thumbnail.png for displaying template image in admin panel and a template_details.xml which will be serving as the main file that Joomla reads to install a template. Finally make a zip file of the complete folder and install it using the Extension Manager in your Joomla Content Management System.
