Is it a plane?
No... its an open source revolution, the birth of Joomla 1.5 beta finally arrives.
Joomla is the most popular open source CMS on the planet:
- Over 60,000 registered users on the Official Joomla! community site forum and more on the many international community sites.
- 1168 Projects on the Joomla! Forge (forge.joomla.org ). All for open source addons by third party developers.
- 890+ extensions for Joomla! registered on the Extension site (extensions.joomla.org)
- Joomla.org exceeds 2 TB of traffic per month!
- Alexa report [October 2006]: Joomla.org at #492 of top 500 busiest websites in the world.
- Community forums , over half a million posts, and 60 000 activated users. Growing at over 1200 posts per day and 150 new partcipants each day!
You can build anything from Joomla, organizations from Porsche, the United Nations, National Lampoon or National political candidates all trust it to meet their web presence needs.
The wonder of Joomla is that you or I can get the same power for our own sites, its open source and free to all.
If you use Joomla on your site, please consider making a donation to the Joomla Project. Its community support that keeps the project going.
