Mambo version 4.5.3 is available
Written by Ilias Antonopoulos   

Team Mambo is pleased to announce the arrival of version 4.5.3 of the Mambo Open Source Content Management System.

Version 4.5.3 is technically a maintenance release - an interim step between major releases - however the Team chose to define 'maintenance' rather broadly and took this opportunity to clean up a number of open issues. The release includes traditional maintenance items like bug fixes and security enhancements, but also goes further to address issues of concern to the community, like the long-standing need for flexible, compliant templates and the desire for an option that presents users with a simpler admin interface. The Team also spent some time standardizing areas in which there had been drift, from typos in language files, to unused controls and inconsistent data labels in the administration system.
