After what can only be described as a fantastic voter turn out (more than many countries get in their national elections) you, the members of Joomla! have selected a new logo.

Joomla 01

Joomla 01 was designed by Alan Urquhart [urquharttownson]

Alan is currently assisting in final tweaks and is even going to the extent of producing a brand guide for the logo's usage. Hence the final version of the logo is not quite ready for public display, but will be launched as soon as possible.

We have opened a new sub-forum which provides a space for all those working in the non-profit, charity, and public sectors to discuss their usage of Joomla. The goal of this sub-forum is to aid the Joomla! Core Team in understanding the CMS needs of the non-profit community, and for the non-profit users community to learn more from each other.

In addition, this will operate as the working space for advocacy information for the community, i.e. upcoming non-profit conferences, posting of non-profit sites using Joomla, etc.

Joomla! 1.0

Joomla!’s multi-award-winning team of developers today released version 1.0 of Joomla!.

The team, which developed the world’s most popular Open Source content management system, have been working their magic since the Joomla! brand was announced — just 17 days ago.

Lead developer Andrew Eddie praised the development team and the Joomla! community for their work and support.

“Baby Joomla! has cut its first tooth with the release of Joomla! v1.0,” he said. “This will be the first milestone in the Joomla! story… everyone knows how important this day is, so everyone should celebrate the freedom.”

Joomla! website creation software is released under GNU GPL.  Joomla! 1.0 is now available for download at developer.joomla.org.

Joomla! Developer Network

The Joomla! Forge is up and ready to accept projects. VA Software has kindly donated SourceForge Enterprise Edition and 2 dual xeon servers for it to run on so this is going to give Joomla! a premiere solutions for project development. I'm sure we'll have some teething problems as things are quite a bit different from the old GForge implementation, there are some limitations that we will work diligently to overcome but I think you'll find the project management capabilities to be superb!

Check out the Joomla! Forge forum area if you have any questions.
