We announced the birth of baby Joomla! just over six months ago. During that time baby "J!" has matured into a highly-acclaimed, award-winning CMS of choice. Not a bad effort for something so new. Most of us know Joomla's heritage and the massive contributions made by developers and community members to further our aims and ensure its future.

For some time now we've been unable to accept donations to the Joomla! project — much to the frustration of many members of the community.

Joomla Extension PortalIt's party time, folks!  Today we proudly announce the launch of our Joomla! Extensions site.  With Joomla! arguably the world's most popular open-source CMS and subsequently the largest active 3PD community, we're introducing the Extensions Directory to make things more fun. Yes, we have listened to the community about how it can be difficult to find things on the Forge.  That message came through loud and clear and a working group has been furiously working behind the scenes to make things user-friendly.

What's this mean? Trying to find a particular component, module or bot (soon to be known as plugin when Joomla! 1.1 is released) on Extensions is a breeze.  You can search by category, most popular, editor's picks, just as you can on high-end commercial software directories.  Once you've found what you want to use, there's a "more information" and "download" links to the Forge where the developer's project sits.  You will also be able to rate your choices, based on your experiences.
