The latest release of the Joomla! CMS has been announced - version 1.5 Beta-2 has been posted for download.
Joomla! proudly presents its most important coding adrenaline surge to the development and designer community. With today's release of Joomla! 1.5 Beta-2, we're shifting gears into turbo mode; an entirely re-factored core, internationalisation, FTP layering, next-generation API and framework that's so flexible and powerful and, of course, a designer's dream for unparalleled templating flexibility.
Along with this release ("Red Barchetta"), they also encourage the community to participate and to contribute to the community, giving back their time and skills to help make the CMS even better.
