The Joomla Project is excited to celebrate a remarkable benchmark in the world of open source—our 10 millionth download.
As one of the most powerful publishing platforms available, Joomla has grown exponentially since it's first release in 2005, which was downloaded just over 72,000 times from JoomlaCode. That meteoric rise in less than four years is a solid statement by the Joomla Community about how the project changes lives all over the world.
With Joomla 1.6 on the horizon, that same community is energized and excited for what the future holds. Development is underway on the next generation content management system, which will enable you, our faithful users, to achieve new heights and hopefully accomplish another 10 million downloads.
