A big thankyou ...

A big thanks goes out to Jeff for spotting and fixing this - the Joomla world is a safer place when Jeff is on the case.

Joomlabamboo Quickstart packages updated to Joomla 2.5.3.

All of our quickstart packages for Joomla templates that are compatible with Joomla 2.5 have also been updated.
