Joomla 1.6 beta 5 released

joomla-1-6-beta-logoThe Joomla Project annouced the immediate availability of Joomla 1.6 beta 5 (download) yesterday.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a beta version and is not intended to run any type of production site. It is intended to be used for evaluation purposes only.

Since the Joomla 1.6 beta 4 release on Jun 28, the team has fixed approximately 65 issues in the tracker. Much of this progress is directly related to the stepped up efforts of the Joomla!
