Nur Aini Rakhmawati

We are pleased to announce Google has accepted Joomla!'s application to participate in the 2008 Google Summer of Code (SoC) program. This is Joomla!'s fourth season and we are eager to welcome another group of contributors with fresh ideas.

With the Summer of Code, Google sets up a win-win situation for students and open source projects. Instead of flipping burgers during summer break, talented student developers can do what they love and write great code in exchange for a $4,500 USD stipend. Even open source projects benefit with improvements to the code base and a $500 USD stipend per participant.

Perhaps the most important benefit is the long term involvement that can result. Both Nur Aini Rakhmawati and Hannes Papenberg were invited to join the Joomla! Development Team after successful SoC projects.

Security Release

The Joomla! Project now announces the immediate release of Joomla! 1.0.15 [Daytime]. This release addresses a security vulnerability and it is recommended that you upgrade immediately. Begin by testing on a backup copy of your site. Once you have verified that your site works as expected, backup your live site and upgrade as soon as possible.

Drupal 6.0 Released

The Joomla! community congratulates the Drupal community on their release of Drupal 6.0. It is a great accomplishment and shows the strength and creativity of their free and open source community. Their hard work has paid off and again shown the power of open source collaboration to produce great software. We are especially thrilled for the many Drupal community members who we have gotten to know, most recently when both projects participated in the Google GHOP Contest .

Drupal like Joomla! makes it possible for millions of people to be creators of rich and complex web content without having to be coders. We celebrate Drupal's achievement in this, just as we celebrated our release of Joomla! 1.5.

Well done Drupal, and congratulations.
