When Joomla 1.6 Alpha was released a few months ago, the original plan was to release the beta version six weeks after that, in August. However, the time came and no beta arrived. So what happened, and what's the status of Joomla 1.6 as of now?
Hannes Papenberg from the Joomla 1.6 Release Team has done a write-up on the current status. He explains why Joomla 1.6 beta 1 was delayed and outlines some of the features we will be seeing.
Many Joomla user wonder about what is going to happen to Joomla in the future. Where are we headed, and how long do we have to wait for the features we long for?
In this post, I'll give you an overview of how Joomla is going to progress in the years to come.
Finally, Joomla 1.6 Alpha is ready for download. As I have previously mentioned, this is NOT software to be used on a live site.
Please download and install this on a test site only, and play around with it. The developers need your feedback and bug reports.
Joomla 1.6 Alpha is now only hours away from being released to the Community, according to Brian Teeman.
It's very important to note that this is an Alpha release - and is far from ready to be installed on a live site.
I've previously written about the upcoming release of Joomla 1.6. The Joomla community is eagerly awaiting this exciting version, but it hasn't been known when we will see a working version.
Now, it seems there is a release date - at least for the Alpha version of Joomla 1.6.
