  • What's New in Joomla!
    The Joomla! Project is evolving. What started with a more closed, small organization is developing into the much larger and more open organization that produces, protects and supports the Joomla! Project today. This month is filled with events reflecting that evolution. This last December we had a Pizza, Bugs and Fun (content/view/4274/74/) event that was key to getting Joomla! 1.5 ready for its phenomenal release in January. It also provided an opportunity for us as a community to get to know each other a little better and build relationships that will continue to drive the Joomla! project into the future. If you can, you should consider participating in the second PBF ( coming up this month. It will be even bigger than the first. In our continuing effort to lower barriers to participate ( in the project and improve communication, we've recently relaunched the Joomla! developer section ( with a series of blogs so that the various development related teams can keep everyone updated on what is going on and provide another format for people to discuss ideas. We have also started development on Joomla! 1.6 after a public process requesting features and receiving input on specific improvements to the next minor release of Joomla!. Getting Together With the huge growth of the Joomla! project and its community, there is much to be discussed and worked on with respect to sites and infrastructure. Because of this, the Joomla! Sites and Infrastructure Working Group will be having their first ever meeting (content/view/4971/1/) this summer in Vancouver just before the first Joomla! Day Vancouver ( This is a big event for the Joomla! project and a great opportunity for everyone involved to discuss new ways of supporting the Joomla! project and its community through our sites and infrastructure. We hope to see as many of you working group members as possible there and hope that everyone who can attend the Joomla! Day ( will come out and participate. Next week, the Joomla! Core Team (content/blogcategory/13/29/) and Board of Directors of Open Source Matters, Inc. ( will be holding their next summit in Pfronten, Germany. The primary focus of this four-day summit will be to discuss how to steer the Joomla! Project into the future. Teams will be blogging from the summit to share items of discussion and get your direct feedback. We want to thank and honor everyone that has helped guide the Joomla! Project through these last few years. Four Joomla! Core Team members who have done just that and recently moved on to focus on other endeavors are Johan Janssens (content/view/23/87/), Shayne Bartlett (content/view/32/87/), Peter Russell (content/view/34/87/) and Rob Schley (content/view/2032/87/). Rob continues to serve the Project by sitting on the Board of Directors of Open Source Matters, Inc. ( We thank each of them for their years of dedicated service and wish them all the best for the future. Getting Involved The re-launch of the developer section ( is aimed at improving communication and lowering barriers to entry in Joomla! development. But, the Joomla! Project requires more than development skill to innovate and run efficiently. We are also looking to do this in other areas. There is a new site we are working on which aims to accomplish those same things on a much larger scale. You won't want to miss the juicy details and inside discussion at the Sites and Infrastructure meeting during Joomla! Day Vancouver ( As previously announced, the second Joomla! PBF ( is happening soon. This new event is geared towards getting Joomla! 1.5.4 ready for release and squashing as many bugs as possible. Anyone and everyone can participate in helping make Joomla! better. Working all together there is no limit to what we can achieve so come be a part of the magic (
