Joomla! 1.5.9 released

Few months ago the joomla team developer just launched the version 1.5.8 . But now, they release joomla 1.5.9 version which they strongly recommend for the webmaster (who are using joomla) to upgrade to 1.5.9 immediately.

There are several forums and websites which the users are asking how to upgrade version. All of the answer are link to joomla official documentation website.
I think it is really great document.
But if you still have no idea how to upgrade version. You might follow my step.

      [required] Means this step is require to upgrade joomla version.


1. [required] Choose the right package to download.
      Joomla 1.5.9 package file for upgrading version is available here

How can I choose which package to download?
-You should know your current joomla version. If you are using version 1.5.7,
you should download joomla 1.5.7 to 1.5.9 package.

There are 3 format type of package, .zip, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2 which one you should download?

If you are using Linux, you might try other 2 format.
