Joomla! 1.5 beta 2

May 5th, 2007 No comments

[Joomla!]

With today’s release of Joomla! 1.5 beta 2, we’re shifting gears into turbo mode; an entirely re-factored core, internationalisation, FTP layering, next-generation API and framework that’s so flexible and powerful and, of course, a designer’s dream for unparalleled templating flexibility.

Joomla! 1.5 beta 2 is feature complete, and it’s the last beta prior to release candidate. In essence Joomla! 1.0.x was based upon the Mambo codebase, whereas Joomla! 1.5 has been completely rewritten from scratch. With Joomla! 1.5 the core developers have tried to make life simpler for the end user, the web administrator and for the third party developers.

All templates for Joomla! 1.0.x can be used in Joomla! 1.5. A lot of features have been added to the templating system in Joomla! 1.5, but full backwards compatibility has been preserved.

To learn more on Joomla! 1.5 and this second beta, please read the release announcement.

b2evolution 1.10 beta

May 2nd, 2007 No comments

[b2evolution]

This is a beta version but as it is built on top of the super stable version 1.9.3, we’re pretty confident that it is stable already.

However there have been enough antispam core changes to warrant this a beta label just in case some side-effects would appear.

There are three main improvements in this version:

* As already mentioned, it blocks even more spam than before;
* It looks better, especially with the new Miami Blue skin;
* It adds new features with new bundled plugins, like YouTube videos, code highlighting and XML sitemaps.

For additional information on improvements and bug fixes, please read the release announcement.
