Upgrade to Joomla 1.6In a few months, the next major version of Joomla will be ready for production sites.

The first release candidate for Joomla 1.6 is just around the corner, so a stable release shouldn’t be too far away.

What does it take to move your Joomla site to Joomla 1.6? Read on for some tips :)

acl-managerThe most wanted feature of Joomla! 1.6 is probably the new permissions system, called Access Control List (ACL). With Joomla! 1.6 ACL, you are able to define who has permission to do what on the website, called actions, like the login, configure, access, create, delete, edit and edit state.

These permissions are given to a group of users. You can configure the group permissions on 4 levels: Global configuration, Components and, if applicable, for Categories and Items.

Joomla! ACL is a great tool to define your own groups and their permissions. Unfortunately you will probably not enjoy the new Joomla! permissions system immediately due the difficulty to understand how the system works. It can be quite abstract.

This is where the ACL Manager for Joomla! 1.6 comes in!


On April 14th, the Joomla team conducted a chat session on IRC. The purpose of the chat was to give users an opportunity to connect with the Joomla team directly. And to ask questions about, in particular, Joomla 1.6.

Some days ago the team published the chat log from the event at joomla.org. I thought I'd spare you going through the complete log. The chat was hosted by Mark Dexter and Robert Deutz. So read on to get the highlights from the "Ask the Joomla team" chat session. As I see it, at least ;)

joomla-16-cpanel-illAndrew Eddie, one of the Joomla 1.6 core developers, released a couple of videos yesterday. The videos feature his presentation of the Joomla 1.6 status at the Melbourne JoomlaDay 2010. Among the things he details in the presentation is the finer details of the ACL (Access Control List) system.

At the same time, some (albeit vague) information on the release of Joomla 1.6 beta 1 has been released on the Joomla 1.6 page at Joomla.org.

joomla-logoOnly some ten days has passed since my last update on Joomla 1.6. Then, the latest news was that Joomla 1.6 beta 1 would be released around now.

Today, however - the Joomla Production Team released news that they would soon announce the release of Joomla 1.6 Alpha 2. Apparently, the ACL (Access Control List) functionality is what makes the project take more time than previously expected.

Amy Stephen has done a remarkable job evaluating the upcoming ACL system for Joomla 1.6.

She has shared her thoughts and suggestions for improvement of the ACL system in a video.

joomla-logoWhen Joomla 1.6 Alpha was released a few months ago, the original plan was to release the beta version six weeks after that, in August. However, the time came and no beta arrived. So what happened, and what's the status of Joomla 1.6 as of now?

Hannes Papenberg from the Joomla 1.6 Release Team has done a write-up on the current status. He explains why Joomla 1.6 beta 1 was delayed and outlines some of the features we will be seeing.

Many Joomla user wonder about what is going to happen to Joomla in the future. Where are we headed, and how long do we have to wait for the features we long for?

In this post, I'll give you an overview of how Joomla is going to progress in the years to come.
