Joomla! 1.5 RC2 [codename: Endeleo] is now available for download. What better way to celebrate our 2nd Birthday! We chose Endeleo as the codename for this release candidate as it is Swahili for 'development, growth, progress ... improvement'. Highly appropriate we feel.

It is roughly five weeks after the RC1 release and we have made major improvements in certain areas of the 1.5 codebase. Time to share another RC with the community. Some improvements and areas of changes are listed below:

  • Router refactoring solving a range of bugs
  • Media Manager refactoring, moving this to MVC standards
  • Updated scripts (version); MooTools, tinyMCE, Xstandard
  • Core template improvements
  • Template language installer support
  • ... and of course a lot more
