In response to public demand, Team Mambo has released a new patch that will upgrade Mambo straight from version 4.6.2 to the latest stable release, which is Mambo 4.6.5. Discussions
This upgrade brings in a number of bug fixes, performance improvements and security enhancements, all together in one upgrade. It also fixes a couple of potentially serious vulnerabilities that were identified in Mambo 4.6.2 and earlier versions.
The new Mambo 4.6.2 to 4.6.5 patch means you have only one upgrade to do to bring you from Mambo 4.6.2. You can download the patch files on our code forge here.
It also means that anyone upgrading from Mambo 4.5, has only two upgrades to do to get to Mambo 4.6.5. There are no database changes between Mambo 4.5.2 and Mambo 4.5.5/4.5.6 so you just need to use the Mambo 4.5.5 to Mambo 4.6.2 upgrade patch to take your site to Mambo 4.6.2. Then apply this latest patch release and voila! Your site will be using the latest version of Mambo.
(NOTE: You may, of course, have other work to do depending on what extensions you are running).
Look for the 4.5.5 to 4.6.2 patch here on the forge.
Full instructions for the upgrades are contained within the packages - please read them.
Both this new upgrade patch and the older patch from version 4.5.5 to 4.6.2 require database changes. The SQL queries you need to run are all detailed in the instructions. If you are not sure how to run database updates, there is a guide to "How to Apply SQL Upgrades using phpMyAdmin" on our Mambo Manual wiki.
