Packt Awards 2007 - Vote for Joomla!

Packt is pleased to announce the launch date of the 2007 Open Source Content Management System Award as Monday July 16. Following on from the success of last year, Packt has expanded the Award for 2007 with an increase in prize money and the addition of new categories.

As many of you know, Joomla! won the award last year and there is no doubt that community support through voting was a significant factor in our success. Fingers crossed, you guys can help us win again!

Today we're excited to announce the appointment of a new person to the core team — and the return of an old friend.

Say hello to new core team member Ole Bang Ottosen and welcome the return of former member Robin Muilwijk.

Joomla! - Open Source Does Matter

Joomla! is moving to ensure the future of the project by committing to compliance with the GNU/GPL license.
This decision reflects a lengthy introspection combined with legal considerations to properly secure the project in the spirit of Open Source. For us, for everyone, Open Source does matter. It's a long, slow road. We're not going to make any sudden moves because we know that a lot of people are relying on us to maintain some stability and meet expectations. We are very much aware that a lot of people make their living around Joomla!, and we are sensitive to producing sudden disruptions in livelihoods. Joomla! is a unique project with unique needs and unique GPL issues. Solutions won't just come off the shelf. There are solutions and compromises on these issues that we are still exploring, and we want to keep hearing from the community so we can get it right. We will provide facts as soon as we have them. If we seem too silent, it's because we don't want to speak until we can do so clearly and confidently. And you'll have plenty of notice before any large changes get made.
