Core Team Member Andy Miller wanted everyone to see the buzz at the Boston LinuxWorld, so he's set up a webcam for us to check things out.

Andy, Mitch Pirtle and Louis Landry are attending the Joomla! stand at the show.  They guys have been inundated with visitors who want to know more about Joomla!

The guys have been giving presentations to users of all skill levels — beginners to experts.  On Monday night, they presented at the Boston PHP User Group.  The presentation included a Skype with the Joomla! Lead Developer Johan Janssens for a quick question and answer session — where there was considerable interest in the forthcoming Joomla! 1.5 beta release.

Joomla! 1.5

Just when you thought it was time for a Joomla! release increment, we've decided to take FIVE in one go!

During the past few months, we've been discussing the versioning of the forthcoming Joomla! release.  We have decided to call the upcoming beta release "Joomla! 1.5 Beta", not Joomla! 1.1 Beta.

The sheer volume of changes in the Joomla! core (Joomla! framework) made a minor point (.1) increment inconsistent with the amount of work undertaken.  While it may not be obvious by simply looking at release dates, today's Joomla! core has multiple technology shifts under the engine.
