Question: Should I update my Joomla 1.6 site to Joomla 1.7?
Absolutely you should. Joomla 1.6 will reach the end of its life in August 2011, just a month away. After that, Joomla 1.6 will have no further security updates, meaning that if a security problem is discovered, it will not be addressed. And that means if your site …

The Joomla! feature tracker is on fire and filled with awesome new features that might well tip the scale in the open source CMS market.
In true Joomla - all together - spirit everyone has been contributing to make our CMS even better and friendlier for first-time, intermediate, advanced and expert users.
As of yesterday, the joomlacode.org project area has 70 new features marked as ‘Ready for review’ or ‘Pending’. There are some very high potential features that will surely change the way people see and use Joomla.
The new features that are in the pipeline target many different perspectives as they address user interface improvements, missing enterprise functionality and new possibilities for third party extensions.
The following is just a randomly ordered short list of what may be considered as major potential new features that may be included - if you help the process - in the next Joomla 3.2 release:
This is only a small subset of new features earmarked for inclusion in Joomla 3.2. You can see all features on the Joomla Features Tracker and make your own short list!
Join the Joomla! Bug Squad (JBS) and help the testing process. There is a great new tool to help you test new pull requests. To test a feature, just download the patchtester component and test immediately any feature directly from the latest corresponding github version for the corresponding pull-request !
Once done testing, simply reply to the tracker item (registration on joomlacode.code required) and reply with your tests in details, preceeded by a @test success or failed line! Each feature request needs at least 2 successful tests (the more the better) to be included. So you can make a big difference now for 3.2 with only a small time investment.
If you are a Joomla user and rely on Joomla for your websites, then help yourself now by testing today features and code that you will be using tomorrow. The more we test, the more new quality features will get into Joomla 3.2.

The numbering of the CMS version 3 releases that are coming in the next day or so is going to be a bit surprising. Maybe not as strange as going from 1.7 to 2.5, but let’s take a closer look so everyone understands what is going on.
As previously posted, the plan was for a release of 3.1.2 early this week. However some people automatically updated prior to the release due to receiving premature notification of the release while final testing of the release packages by the Joomla! Bug Squad was beginning.
When they updated they found that, in fact, there was a problem with the packages. That problem caused their updates to fail, breaking their sites. After several intense days of investigation, it was determined that the failure was due to changes to a key file (restore.php) in the update component itself. This caused the updates to fail before completing.
Once the cause of the problem was identified, a solution was sought. Although it seems as though a limited number of sites were impacted by this change, it is important to provide them with a way to update successfully using the automatic updater, which the corrupted file would prevent.
After a lot of head scratching, experimentation and testing a workable plan was developed. That is where the strange release schedule and numbers come in.
3.1.2, the release that was never released, will not have a formal release.
3.1.3 will be a release that will only replace the corrupted file. Only users who installed 3.1.2 will install 3.1.3. Everyone else will skip 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 and go straight to 3.1.4.
All of this will work seamlessly in the Joomla update component.
Thanks as always to the people who test the pre-release CMS packages and to those who accidentally updated and quickly reported problems. This participation means that no broken version of the CMS was released and is what makes Joomla! not just such a powerful application but also a great development and user community to be a part of.
Though 3.141592 has been suggested as the next release, most likely we’ll have a 3.1.5 in August just before the beta of 3.2.
Update: Added missing paragraph and missing dots in title.
Joomla! User Groups (JUGs) beat at the heart of the Joomla! project, providing a regular opportunity for members of the community to come together, share their knowledge, learn, and meet others from their local area.
There are Joomla! User Groups around the world, all of which are run by volunteers. A team of volunteers also makes up the Joomla! User Group Team, who are responsible for approving JUG applications, supporting new User Groups during the application process, in the early days when the JUG is getting started and dealing with any issues which may arise in relation to Joomla! User Groups.
Tomorrow (Friday, July 12th) is the gobal Pizza, Bugs, and Fun event. It's an all-day, in every time zone, global event that's open to all virtual participants that are interested. There will also be local venues wherever they are organized, as well as a virtual training session today at 15:00 UTC. The key goal is to fix as many Joomla 3 and Joomla 2.5 bugs as possible. Read on for more information.
Please consider this your personal invitation to join us on Friday, the 12th of July, for our first Business Pizza, Bugs, and Fun event. It's an all-day global event that's open to all virtual participants that are interested. There will also be local venues wherever they are organized. The key goal is to fix as many Joomla 3 and Joomla 2.5 bugs as possible before the next maintenance releases.
We've dubbed the event as a Business PBF, since it's our first PBF on a weekday (Friday) and we'd like to get more businesses involved. We've created badges that you can use on your sites to spread awareness of the event and get recognition for your participation. For more information, check out our landing page at http://developer.joomla.org/pbf.
Since 2010 the VEL team have organised the Vulnerable Extensions List on behalf of the Joomla community. Since then the list has been hosted on the docs.joomla.org pages.The VEL team felt that now was the time to move the vel project onto its own website.
Those interested do not need to know how to code or be a developer but they must be able to:
This volunteer role requires only a little commitment but does require a lot of discretion as you may be dealing with exploits that will affect the joomla community as a whole.
For those interested please complete the expression of interest form by the 15th May
Google’s Open Source offices have officially announced that there will be a Google Summer of Code Program this year. Because of the wild success of our projects with GSoC last year, the Joomla Community has again put together a team to mentor college / university students of any age for the summer. That team has already filled out the application for Google, and been approved by Google. This is happening, folks!
Last year had a major focus on the (then) Joomla Platform codebase. Six out of our seven projects were platform related. This year, we have almost the opposite so far in terms of project ideas. The CMS has quite a few more project ideas on our ideas list, which should mean great innovation and maybe some new features in the upcoming Joomla 3 releases. The CMS is an exciting place for people interested in working on innovative applications. New features like tagging and Bootstrap and new CMS only APIS have created a good infrastructure for new work and for extension developers to dig in and check out all the great new features available to them in the 3.0 series! Both being a student developer and mentoring will put you in the middle of exciting changes for 3.2, 3.5 and beyond.
If you’re interested in helping with GSoC, mentoring a student, or you are a student, we’d love to hear from you. There are a few important ways that we need help this year. If you’re a programmer who just doesn’t have the time to take on mentoring a student and project (we’re all busy!) maybe you could just offer some assistance when a student has the need for some code to be tested by several different testers who can provide useful feedback.
If you are a programmer and you do have a bit of available time over the summer, we can always use more mentors. Even if you can’t commit to a full time mentoring position, just having someone available at the right time can make a difference. Just talk to us, we’ll find a way to work with your schedule and the time you have available. Of course, if you can commit to mentoring a project, we would love to hear from you too - don’t be shy!
There’s a lot of information about GSoC out there, specific to Joomla and more general just for GSoC. Here’s a few links to help you out:
To get in contact with the GSoC team, send an email to gsoc [at] opensourcematters.org
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
With the ever-increasing demand for content to be consumed across platforms and across devices, Joomla urgently needs a RESTful web services API. It is no longer enough to just publish content on a website and expect people to use a web browser to access it. Nowadays people want to consume content on smartphones, tablets and other devices, and they want to be able to connect information systems together to break out of the old content silos. Joomla as a content management system (CMS) needs to be more open to new methods of publishing content and we need to think beyond the traditional web CMS to embrace the full extent of our mission "to provide a flexible platform for digital publishing and collaboration".
Today (Saturday, March 16th) is the gobal Pizza, Bugs, and Fun event. It's an all-day, in every time zone, global event that's open to all virtual participants that are interested. There will also be local venues wherever they are organized, including at Joomla!Day Boston. The key goal is to fix as many Joomla 3 and Joomla 2.5 bugs as possible before Joomla 3.1's release, which will be on or around the 28th of March, and Joomla 2.5.10's release.
Last week (5-9 March 2013) Joomla was present at CeBIT 2013, the world's largest and most international computer expo in Hannover, Germany. We shared a booth called “CMS Garden” with 12 other open source content management systems (CMS). The idea behind this shared booth was to have all of the relevant open source content management systems all in one place.
Two of those systems are, just like Joomla, in the top 3 of leading CMS systems: Wordpress and Drupal.
I was poking around our very own Joomlacode.org site today and started looking at some recent download statistics. As you may know, reliable market share information for open-source CMS packages is hard to find, and it is especially difficult to assess recent trends. However, Joomlacode tracks all file downloads (including those from the one-click version updates), and these do provide some useful data. Here are some numbers I found interesting.
In the last six months (September 2012 – February 2013), we registered the following download counts for full packages (excluding the update packages):
During this period, we averaged about 420k downloads per month of our two flagship products.
It is almost time for Joomla 3.1 Beta and we wanted to give you a quick sneak-peek at the proposed new Tags feature to get you excited for it, which at this point looks like it will likely get in for Joomla 3.1 or at the latest for Joomla 3.2. Tags are a kind of meta-data that allow you to assign a keyword or keywords to a particular item. Since it's meta data, core and custom extensions could theoretically organize and display that meta-data in many different ways. For example, you might tag some contacts in Contact Manager as "Joomla Bug Squad" and do the same for some articles in Article Manager. You could then create a menu item (or use a module) to display, within a list, all the items tagged as "Joomla Bug Squad".
The spring time is drawing upon us, and for student developers, this is an exciting time of year. Google has again announced that it will be running the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program. Continuing on the successes of previous years, the Joomla! Project will once again apply to participate in this program.
