Just when you thought it was time for a Joomla! release increment, we've decided to take FIVE in one go!
During the past few months, we've been discussing the versioning of the forthcoming Joomla! release. We have decided to call the upcoming beta release "Joomla! 1.5 Beta", not Joomla! 1.1 Beta.
The sheer volume of changes in the Joomla! core (Joomla! framework) made a minor point (.1) increment inconsistent with the amount of work undertaken. While it may not be obvious by simply looking at release dates, today's Joomla! core has multiple technology shifts under the engine.
Much of the work reflects meeting the expectations from requests by the international community, to make Joomla! fully internationalised — and this was given the highest priority. Lead developer of 1.5 Johan Janssens said the development issues involved in implementing internationalisation required "significantly more developer muscle compared to what shipped in Joomla! 1.0".
