Joomla! Community Magazine

The December issue of the Joomla Community Magazine is here!

In this issue, we have made some usability improvements based on recommendations offered by Merav Knafo in her Joomla.org Magazine Usability Testing Report. Thank you Merav and Steve Bickel for your willingness to take a look at the JCM and point out some areas where we can improve!

Also, we give our special thanks to the members of the Joomla! community who are contributing authors in this month's issue: Lukas Polak, Parth Lawate, Jarrod Nettles, and Merav Knafo.

Joomla 1.6 Beta 15

The Joomla! Project is proud to announce the immediate availability of Joomla 1.6 beta 15 (download).
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 14 release on November 15, we have fixed approximately 84 issues. Much of this progress is directly related to the stepped up efforts of the Joomla! Bug Squad. Thanks for all your hard work in bringing us one increment closer to stable!

See the CHANGELOG for details of what has been changed in this release.

Andrew Eddie looks to the future of Joomla

At the recent Leadership Team summit in San Jose, CA, the Production Leadership Team discussed the best ways to outline the path forward for Joomla Development. The outcome was a vision statement as part of the strategy for focusing efforts as part of our new iterative approach to development.

The vision statement defines the desired goals with the next release and provides an inspiration point for potential additional related goals. It also helps the team and community in making better decisions. This doesn’t mean that features outside the scope of the vision statement won’t be considered and/or included, but they may have a reduced chance since they deviate from the vision. The vision for the next release is "Rediscover Content" and outlined below.
