Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during week 25.
There's a very interesting post by Gary J. Brooks about the challenges with getting demo.joomla.org to work smoothly. Ryan Ozimek talks about new OSM leadership positions and the people assigned to them, there's a post on mobile Joomla sites, and Brian Teeman continues his series on "The Joomla World Cup" with a post about the Joomla powered site for the city of Johannesburg, to mention some of the post found this week.

Hello Joomla! community. This is a demo site update. We want to tell you about some of the fun technical details of how the site operates and about upgrades that are coming to the demo site. CloudAccess.net provides a service to the community that gives each user a full individual install of the Joomla! open source CMS hosted with support. We started this on May 5th, 2010.

I'm pleased to announce that the OSM Board has new leaders filling critical roles in our organization.
During the past few months, I've spearheaded a project inside Open Source Matters (OSM) to delineate clear roles and responsibilities for a few important positions within our organization.

Every time I turn around, it seems like more positive change is coming out of Open Source Matters.
Jacques Rentzke opened an Open Source Matters group in People as "an informal space for the community to interact with the members of the board." Prior to this, there has never been a way to do so. This is openness.

The mobile web has been a big topic of conversation for people over the last year. Everyone wants their Joomla site optimized for the iPhone, Android and other mobile devices and operating systems. New smartphones are being released every few hours, it seems, and people are quickly finding the need to build mobile friendly websites.

Joomlatools would like to announce the immediate availability of DOCman 1.5.8 and DOCman 1.4.1.
Recently a medium level vulnerability was discovered in DOCman. A user with editing permissions can potentially access confidential data. The following versions of DOCman are affected: 1.3.x, 1.4.x up to 1.4.0.stable, 1.5.x up to 1.5.7. Upgrading to either 1.4.1 or 1.5.8 resolves the issue.

What could be a more appropriate Joomla! powered web site for the World Cup than that of the City of Johannesburg.
Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa and one of the 40 largest metropolitan areas in the world.
