Pizza, Bugs, and Fun March 3, 2012

Written by Andrea Tarr

We are announcing a Joomla! Pizza Bugs and Fun event scheduled for Saturday, March 3, 2012. The event is global for virtual participants with local venues where ever they are organized. We squashed a lot of bugs last month, but as more people use a new release, we always find more. We'll also have documentation ready to be worked on. 

Our goal is to work on coding and testing issues in the CMS Issue Tracker. The coding will obviously require programmers to do, but you don’t need to be able to code to test.

Latin American Joomla: Joomleiro, Juuntos and Jokte

Written by Amy Stephen

I wanted to share a quick post on community initiatives in Latin America. You might have noticed tweets from folks in Brazil, Chile, Mexico, and other Latin American countries and wondered what's going on. While some of the discussion has related to difficulties with the Joomla trademark, the more important message is that community is strengthening and more active in that region. That's good to see and deserving of our support.

I am not technical, so this is not a technical discussion, but rather looks at the entire issue from the point of view of an administrator and client.

Today we are excited to announce that work on Agora 4 is nearing competition. It is is slated for a beta release in February and as of this writing is the only bulletin board written natively for Joomla. 

Rebuilt from the ground up, Agora 4 will work natively in Joomla 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and beyond.
