Joomla! 1.5

The Joomla! Core Team takes this opportunity to announce it will be holding a Core Team Summit prior to the Joomla!Day USA (West), at the Googleplex, in California.  Meeting over three days, both the core team and the Open Source Matters Board of Directors will be tackling many issues pertaining to the future of Joomla.

Joomla 100k Reasons

It's official — Joomla! has the largest Open Source CMS focused forum on the planet. In fact, by reaching 100,000 users signed up (validated), Joomla! contends with some of the biggest forums on the Internet. We reckon is in the top 10 of all comers.

Reaching this 100k watershed is significant as the heart of this reveals true Open Source source spirit with many of these members sharing their knowledge and experience. And this strength — the backbone of the project in many ways — manifests in a mature 'eco-system' that's self-supporting. Thousands of helping hands and minds.

"Joomla's success rides on the support available to end users through (among other places) our community forum," said Core Team member Brad Baker. "Time and time again, we hear users thanking us for the software, yet, without the active community Joomla! would not be where it is today ... one of the world's most popular Open Source projects. You are all a part of this and deserve a hearty thanks." Shifts Forge's Gears

Today marks a defining moment in the Joomlasphere, which sees the launch of our gForge. Yes, the new 'V8 hot rod' has arrived — and we believe it will provide the best development environment for a number of reasons but primarily to future-proof and cope with huge load.

The Paint Dried Today

When we announced the move last week, we still had plenty left to do to 'Pimp our Ride' but the team has done an amazing job. Today we've sent out emails to project administrators to inform them they will get best benefit by: 1. registering on the new Forge ASAP, 2. reconciling their download links on their Extensions Directory projects.
