Even though I try not to chase the news (it wears you out, I promise you), there's a lot going on in the Joomla commounity. I will comment on certain things happening with Joomla, other stuff I will just link to in my Twitter account. Enjoy!

joomla-week-02Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during the last week.

Of course, the hot topic in the Joomla sphere last week was the release of version 1.6.

Brian Teeman has done a post with links to movies, presentations and articles about Joomla 1.6. Ryan Ozimek presented Joomla at CodeMash, Amy Stephen has looked at overriding 1.6 framework classes and the project thanks the volunteers.

In other news, there is info on the Santiago Times Joomla site, about Joomla friendly hosting and the release of NinjaBoard 1.0, to mention some.

migration-traffic-illAs I wrote yesterday, lots of people are talking about the migration of websites from Joomla 1.5 to 1.6.

Yesterday's interview with developer Matias Aguirre has resulted in a connection between him an more people in the community. I hope this will result in a powerful and stable migration script as soon as possible.

I also noticed a sharp increase in the traffic to my 2009 post Migration from Joomla 1.5 to 1.6 will be easy. There's no doubt that this subject is something people are concerned about.

joomla-16-ga-releasedToday, Joomla! 1.6.0 has been released. The wait has been long, and now it's finally here!

Of course, there are still things to be resolved. The version is not released as stable, because it still contains bugs.

Even so, I think it's important to get the software out there. Developers need to rewrite their extensions. Template designers need to update and create new templates. Users need to test and learn the new version.

joomla-week-01Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during the last week.

Jeremy Wilken has written a really nice review of 2010 and shares some thoughts on 2011.

And Anthony Olsen shares his and Kyle Ledbetter's top Joomla templates for 2010.

Enjoy!

Enjoy the read!
