Joomla! is a free and open source content management system (CMS) for publishing content on the World Wide Web and intranets. With a vibrant volunteer community, user-friendly features and plenty of power, Joomla is perfect for your website!
Joomla! is written in PHP, uses object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques and software patterns, stores data in a MySQL database, and includes features such as page caching, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, polls, search, and support for language internationalization.
We launched the final release of Joomla 2.5 today. We've watched the most incredible community come together for this release. The marketing team worked closely with the Update Working Group and Leadership to create artwork, infographics, videos and raise awareness of Joomla 2.5 end of support.
The Joomla developers are proud to bring you the absolute latest and greatest CMS software.
Joomla 2.5 is reaching its end of support on December 31st 2014. End of support means that the release shall not be actively developed and maintained from now on. Your website will still function as normal.
The Joomla! Production Leadership Team (PLT) is pleased to announce the addition of two new members: George Wilson and Roland Dalmulder.
The PLT is responsible for leading and coordinating the development of the Joomla CMS and the Joomla Framework. This includes releasing new versions, fixing bugs, adding new features, translating and creating documentation.
Back in March of 2013 the Joomla Extensions Directory (JED) Team began drafting a list of requirements to upgrade the JED to Joomla 3.x and improve several areas of the directory. We simply out-grown the system in place. The request for proposal was announced in August 2013 and a vendor, Fabrik, was selected to build the new JED in March 2014. Since March, the Fabrik team has been diligently working and building a completely new, custom extension to meet our needs.
Some of the new key features include:
An improved extensions submission process that will automatically screen new submissions for common errors.
