Joomla! 1.5 beta 2


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.
