Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during week 21.
This week, there's a case study on a multinational company using Joomla for their corporate website, a couple of Joomla 1.6 related posts and the announcement of the nominees for the J!Oscars awards. Guess who's nominated in two categories ;)
Enjoy the read!

I am opening this topic for those who want to discuss the changes to Extensions required for Joomla! 1.6. The more important discussion that the core developers are supporting and answering is entitled 1.5 and 1.6: A Joomla Developers Dilema on the Joomla! Developer List.
Jeremy Wilken opened a Joomla! Wiki page that we can all use to document changes for all developers.
SocialAds for JomSocial is finally into Beta ! We are accepting beta tester applications for SocialAds.
With Social Ads for JomSocial, you can create Facebook like demographically targeted ads to show on Your JomSocial Site. This extension allows advertisers to create their advertisement , Target the users they want to show the advertisement to, Decide if they want to pay by impressions or per click, Pay online & get the advertisement started up right away!
This is a challenge for developers of Joomla products. I have seen it elsewhere, and wanted to push for it here. The challenge is to pledge 1.6 support for your product by the time it is stable 1.0 release.
Truth is I only know of one 1.6 native extension (Akeeba Backup) at the time of writing. Its simple to pledge, and I am suggesting this simple line be used, change for your name and extension.

2010 sees the launch of the first ever global "Joomla Open Source Creative and Artistic Recognition" awards to be held at the J! and Beyond conference in Wiesbaden, Germany.
After accepting nominations, from you the Joomla! community, the International Jury has now analysed those nominations and are excited to announce the shortlist. I sure am glad I wasn't on the Jury as it can not have been an easy task.
