Joomla 2.5 is coming, and Joomlashack is ready!
The next release of Joomla is just around the corner (slated for release before the end of January 2012), and soon after its release older versions will stop being officially supported by Joomla. We want to share with you our plans for supporting our products, and to answer the questions that many have starting asking about support for 2.5.
Since the release of Joomla 1.6, and now 1.7, most people are aware of the major changes and features that were added to this great CMS platform since the 1.5 version, such as infinitely nestable categories (and the removal of sections), the powerful Access Control List (ACL) system, and the modifications made to the layout of the admin interface of Joomla.
There’s a number of new features that are less well known, and I thought I’d give them a little love in this post. Here’s a list of several new and useful features in Joomla 1.6/1.7 that you may have not been aware of.
