Is there a mailing list somewhere specifically for this? None of the mailing lists on the official Joomla site seem to mention that.

In my case, I just have one Joomla site to look after, so I'm only interested in particularly important emails such as security issues, and don't want to have to manually filter those out from others that aren't of interest.

    the upcoming J3.5 version (expected to arrive really soon) will include a feature for admin notification emails on core updates. – FFrewin Feb 16 '16 at 15:10

Joomla has a section of the developer site called the "Security Centre" which sends out emails about security issues. There is also a mailing list for the same content. There doesn't seem to be a link to it any more but you can subscribe at:


There is a feature in development/about to be released in 3.5 that will notify Joomla administrators of updates to the Joomla core.

So, assuming you keep uptodate then the 3.5 release should help.

    I hear you man... It's such a shame that RSS support is dropping left and right... Even here on JSE or any other SX site, one can't have a decent feed of his own activity, favorites, reputation changes, etc... {sigh} – Mikan Feb 16 '16 at 15:53
