This week Joomla! will mark its one millionth post on the forums. This is amazing ... that's a heck of a lot of conversation, questions and answers. We believe the forum is the life force of the project and this milestone signifies Joomla's unstoppable community.
Core team member and forum admin Brad Baker says the million posts would never have eventuated without the passionate support of our moderators.

Joomla! 1.5 RC2 [codename: Endeleo] is now available for download. What better way to celebrate our 2nd Birthday! We chose Endeleo as the codename for this release candidate as it is Swahili for 'development, growth, progress ... improvement'. Highly appropriate we feel.
It is roughly five weeks after the RC1 release and we have made major improvements in certain areas of the 1.5 codebase. Time to share another RC with the community. Some improvements and areas of changes are listed below:
- Router refactoring solving a range of bugs
- Media Manager refactoring, moving this to MVC standards
- Updated scripts (version); MooTools, tinyMCE, Xstandard
- Core template improvements
- Template language installer support
- ... and of course a lot more
