The "Handboek Joomla!" is a 148 page magazine dedicated to Joomla that is just about ready to go to print. The Dutch Joomla community has worked together with some international community members on the issue. Over 40 people contributed in some way to this magazine, which is made made by the Dutch Webdesigner magazine.
The Joomla® project has just launched a new service: Joomla.com. Users worldwide can now create and build Joomla websites and have them hosted for free. The service is offered in corporation with web hosting company SiteGround, who’s built the server infrastructure for the service.
Free hosting of Joomla sites has not been available in this form before. By introducing the Joomla.com service, Joomla takes a big step in terms of spreading the use of the CMS. Users will be able to set up a fully working Joomla website, hosted for free for an unlimited time. The site will run on a mysite.joomla.com type subdomain, not unlike the service found at WordPress.com.
On August 14th and 15th, OSTraining hosted an event called Joomla3 Day. During the event, several people from the community did presentations on various aspects of using Joomla.
One of the presentations was an hour-long presentation on the new version of K2 which is now in beta stage. The stable version of K2 v.3 is set for release late September / early October 2014.
In the presentation, Fotis Evangelou, main developer of K2, goes through K2 in general and then goes into detailed explanation of K2 version 3.
