Joomla! 1.5 Beta Released

Joomla! 1.5 Beta is out, I will migrate my homepage to the latest version as soon as it is final, In the meantime, I am committed to support #Joomla! 1.5 for all my components and plugins. 

Exactly one year ago, #Joomla! 1.0 was released.  Today, #Joomla! releases the next generation framework built from the ground up.  Joomla! 1.5 beta delivers more simplicity for the user and much more power for developers.  The innovation and skill of our development team is clearly setting higher and higher standards.

But before we get into reams of detail about just how good #Joomla! 1.5 beta is, remember this is a beta and is not yet ready for use on a production website.  We need the community to roll up its sleeves and seek out bugs (and feed this back to the development working group), before we enter the release candidate phase.
