Joomla! Site Administrator

Site Administrators - Simplicity & Control

At first glance, you will appreciate user interface improvements. The Joomla! 1.5 Administrator is more refined and the main menu simplified. The global configuration was substantially reworked for simpler presentation and greater control. [9] An important improvement for our international community is having Joomla!'s entire Administrator available in one's own language using language packs made available at joomlacode.org.

Joomla! administrators will find a number of improvements in ease of site management. A single installer is available for all extension types, including languages. [5] The media manager is improved visually and functionally. Images, documents, presentations, and more, can now be stored. Other improvements include multi-delete capability, batch file uploads, and an ability to view media in icon and list formats. [4]

Joomla! Documentation Camp

One of the most important ways an open source community interacts is by helping one another. This weekend gives everyone in the Joomla! community a fun new way to do just that. The first world-wide documentation camp for the Joomla! project kicks off tomorrow, Saturday 19th January 2008 and will continue all the way through Monday evening.

What is a documentation camp?

Good question. With the release of Joomla! 1.5 right around the corner, our community has a big need for new documentation on nearly every aspect of Joomla!. In a sentence this documentation camp is a lot of community members working together over the course of a weekend to write up a massive amount of documentation for the soon to be released Joomla! 1.5. We have a very large wishlist of tasks to be accomplished ready and waiting for anyone and everyone who can participate. To make everyone's life easy we have split off tasks into bite-sized items so that no one has to dedicate more time than he or she can afford during the event.

Help Test Joomla! 1.0.14

The Joomla! Project today announced the immediate release of Joomla! 1.0.14 RC1 [Daybreak], the first and hopefully singular release candidate for the 1.0.14 release cycle. Several security issues have been discovered and addressed for this release. While the required changes are not significant, the number of impacted files are significant and we need your help. Before this release is declared stable we need to ensure that it works as well for you as it does for us.

Those of you that are able and willing please download a copy of 1.0.14 RC1 and test it on a backup copy of your live site. Make sure that the system works as good or better than Joomla! 1.0.13, our current stable release. Any issues that you find please report in the 1.0.x Bug Tracker. If you have questions on how to report a bug you should read the how-to and then if you still have questions please feel free to ask them in our 1.0.x Quality and Testing forum.

Since this release fixes security vulnerabilities, once you have verified on a backup of your site that everything works as expected we suggest that you upgrade your live site to this release.
