Joomla! 1.6 beta 1 release today!

Joomla 1.6After a long wait, Joomla! 1.6 beta 1 will be released to the public today. This version arrives almost 7 months after Joomla! 1.6 Alpha 2 was released. It's been a long wait - but as it seems - it is worth it.

This beta version marks a huge step forward in the development of Joomla 1.6. The features in this version are the ones that will be found in the final, stable version.

Joomla 1.6 has been designed to offer enhanced site control and a more polished user experience. It will deliver a variety of new tools to improve website management and access, a more robust organizational structure for content control, and various other user- experience improvements throughout the system.

Joomla 1.5.17 released

joomla-logoJust a few days after the release of Joomla 1.5.16, the team released another version yesterday: Joomla 1.5.17.

Apparently, Joomla 1.5.16 had a couple of bugs in it. And those bugs were serious enough to release another version now.

You can upgrade directly from Joomla 1.5.15 (or an older version) to Joomla 1.5.17.
