When I logged in to my development site today I had a message to upgrade Joomla to 3.3.6. I noticed that Joomla had released 3.3.5 today so I run an update thru CMS Update just to see what happened. The installation went well and the system says that I now have version 3.3.6 but now CMS Update tells me to upgrade to Joomla 3.3.4.
I did a manually update to Joomla 3.3.5 and the system tells me that I have 3.3.5 now but CMS Update still want's to update to 3.3.4.
Best regards,
Peter / Ingemar

I think 3.3.6 is a release candidate that will be officially released in the next few days. Joomla! caches the update information and your cached version is wrong. Unfortunately, in Joomla! 3.x you can't clear the cache, you just have to wait for it to expire and update on its own.

OK, I understand. However, it's a little bit confusing. Did version 1.0.3 correct the error which says I shall install the 3.3.4 after I have installed the 3.3.6?
With this behaivior I first have to check if Joomla! has released the version CMS Update suggest me to install.
I try to find the changelog for each component on your site but I can't find it. Can you give me a hint where to find it?

No, Joomla! 3.3.6 was indeed released shortly after 3.3.5 because of a problem in Joomla! update.

The thing Dale was talking about was caused by a problem in Joomla!'s pre-release version numbering which has been fixed since version 3.3.4. The Joomla! package maintainer had forgotten to add the -dev designation (therefore, version 3.3.4-dev) to the testing package. Since there is no other way to know if a package is pre-release or stable, CMS Update was picking it up as stable. For what is worth, the same thing happened with Joomla! Update itself. Joomla! has fixed their pre-release provisioning procedures to make sure this doesn't happen again.
