Joomla 1.6 beta 14 released (changelog included)

Joomla 1.6 beta 13

Today, the Joomla Project announced the immediate availability of Joomla 1.6 beta 14 (download). IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a beta version and is not intended to run any type of production site. It is intended to be used for evaluation purposes only.

Since the Joomla 1.6 beta 13 release on November 1, the team has fixed approximately 69 issues in the tracker. They have closed an additional 45 tracker issues. At the present time, they have 5 issues that are blocking the release 1.6 Release Candidate 1.

This progress is directly related to the continued efforts of the Joomla! Bug Squad. Thanks to everyone involved for all your hard work in bringing us one increment closer to a stable release of Joomla 1.6!

See the CHANGELOG below for details of what has been changed in this release.

Release candidate before Christmas?

Mark Dexter wrote a message in the Joomla! Bug Squad Google Group earlier today:

As you know, we will release beta14 later today (15 November). At present we have 11 RC blockers in the tracker, but 3 of those are RTC and one is Pending. Also, several others are being worked on and we believe solutions for them are close. Given this, we have a fighting chance of having beta 14 be the last
beta version and having RC1 out in 2 weeks.

I really hope they'll manage to pull this off. However, there has been several attempts in the past to get a release ready before Christmas. History tells us it's not an easy thing to do. Christmas is normally a down-time with people being busy in other areas.

So, I guess it's more realistic to believe we'll see a release candidate of Joomla 1.6 early in 2011.

What's next?

This is the 14th in the series of continuous beta releases. Beta 15 (or possibly 1.6 Release Candidate 1) will be released on November 29, 2010.
