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.

Recently there was a highly visible change at joomla.org as we relaunched our forums on phpBB3 . Along with the changes to our sites, we also have a few changes inside the Joomla! project to announce. Please join us in recognising and honouring the work of three core team members who have recently stepped down from the team and in welcoming a new member.

Following the release of Joomla! 1.0.14 [Daybreak] and Joomla! 1.5.1 [Seenu] we are entering the planning phase for the next minor release of Joomla!: version 1.6. With the release, we have two goals: better planning and more involvement with the community.
We will be determining the goals of the release with a planning process that means that we will determine what we are going to implement before we actually start developing. The focus on community involvement will mean that everyone can give input on the features that might get into the next minor release of Joomla!
So what is the plan?
We are starting our work on Joomla! 1.6 by formally setting the goals for the release. To work out what those goals are going to be we are going to consult with the community.
