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.
Here are some basic facts about the #Joomlasphere:
- More than 60,000 registered users on the Official Joomla! community site forum and more on the many international community sites.
- 1168 Projects on the #Joomla! Forge (forge.joomla.org). All for open source addons by third party developers.
- 890+ extensions for #Joomla! registered on the Extension site (extensions.joomla.org)
- Joomla.org exceeds 2 TB of traffic per month!
- Alexa report [October 2006]: #Joomla.org at #492 of top 500 busiest websites in the world.
- Community forums, over half a million posts, and 60,000 activated users. Growing at over 1200 posts per day and 150 new partcipants each day!
