Why a Joomla 3.8.13 release?

Joomla 3.9, The Privacy Tool Suite by Joomla, is coming soon.
In order to give time to our users to upgrade from 3.8.x to 3.9.0 so that they can test their 3rd party extensions, we decided to fix these security vulnerabilities in a dedicated release before 3.9.0.

We invite our users to update as soon as possible their web sites to Joomla 3.8.13.
