Editor’s Introduction

The Joomla! Project is pleased to announce the availability of Joomla! 1.7 Alpha 1 for download - on time and on target. This is the first release made within the new six-month release cycle that started with the delivery of Joomla 1.6 in January this year.

What is this release for?

There are several goals for this release:

  1. To allow advance testing of sites and custom extensions so that site administrators and developers can report any problems before the final release.
  2. To raise awareness that the end of the current development cycle is fast approaching.
