The Joomla! community is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Joomla! 1.5.3 [Vahi]. This release is earlier than scheduled in order to correct a database name validation error introduced in 1.5.2. It has been a month since Joomla! 1.5.2 was released on March 23, 2008. The goal is to provide regular, frequent updates to the Joomla! end user community containing the latest bug fixes and minor enhancements.

The Google Summer of Code 2008 student application deadline has been extended to Monday, April 7, 2008. GSoC is a great way for talented student developers to do what they love during the summer break and write great code in exchange for a $4,500 USD stipend from Google. This is Joomla!'s fourth year participating and we look forward to welcoming a new set of amazing talent.

Google Summer of Code 2008: Now Accepting Applications

Let's get running! The Google Summer of Code 2008 is now underway and students should submit their applications before the March 31, 2008 deadline. Visit the Joomla! Wiki for the GSoC or review the Student Guidelines for more details about the program and how to get a running start.

The most exciting applications we receive are from students who take time to discuss their ideas before submitting. As a student, you can check out the Joomla! Project's proposed ideas or discuss your own ideas in the Summer of Code forum. You will also get some great insight and help on the Joomla! Summer of Code mailing list. We want you to get to know Joomla! even better and increase your chances of a successful project.
