This weekend all the joomla leadership teams, including OSM, are gathering in San Jose, California to discuss numerous issues effecting the future directions and goals of the project. It's really great to see so many people travelling across the world in their own free time to meet up and consider the future path of our project.

Phew. Joomla! Explained is finally out. If you've written a book, you know how I feel. Phrases like "piece of cake" and "walk in the park" aren't involved.
Why Is Writing a Book So Difficult (Particularly for Web People)?

In Google Trends - Joomla! vs Wordpress vs Druplal, the line for Joomla! on the trends graph is falling in a very disturbing way. Despite the optimism prior to Joomla! 1.6 which brought much desired improvements like advanced access control list (ACL), Joomla! has not prospered in comparison to Wordpress. A continued fall on the chart may imply that Joomla! could find it's final resting place at the bottom of the three lines. Why is this happening?

To some it may seem like the DOCman team had gone a little quiet of late but to those who know us it was a sure sign that something big was happening behind the scenes.
We are happy to announce the release of DOCman 1.6 for Joomla 1.6 and 1.7! Join our new Joomlatools club and download the latest update to the DOCman software in our Member Center.

The Rasa Joomla template was released in September last year and has been a favourite among those who like their Joomla templates simple, cleanm and minimal. If you need a little refresh of what it looked like be sure to check out the live preview, or if you are already a member you can download the template and quickstart now.
