The moment we've all been waiting for has arrived and has passed us by and vaulted into the future. Some plot line from the Matrix? No- the rapid development and improvement of Joomla 1.5.

Back in late January the Joomla Project released a stable version of Joomla 1.5, an event long awaited and eagerly anticipated in the Joomlaverse. After nearly 18 months in development, several betas and four Release Candidates, Joomla 1.5 arrived, ready and stable. The pent-up excitement overwhelmed the Joomla 1.5 download site for a time, with thousands trying to get their hands on the stable release all at once.

All of us here at Joomlashack were so excited that we all jumped right into playing with the new version, and forgot to take a break from the fun and blog about it. Good thing, too- because within just a couple weeks, Joomla 1.5.1 hit the scene unexpectedly. A small but important security vulnerability surfaced in 1.5.0 very quickly, thanks in part to the incredible number of downloads and new users that put the stable release to the test and ferreted out the bug in record time.

So- if you haven't yet joined the throngs to try out Joomla 1.5.1, now you can! Be sure to check out all of our 1.5-ready templates too.

 

 

For those of you using the Aqualine Noir template and enjoying the new Joomla! 1.5, you'll be pleased to know we have just updated this great template to run natively with Joomla! 1.5.

We've also done a lot of the hard work for you by adding a 1.5 Quicklauncher package for quick and easy setup.

If you've already purchased, just login and re-download the package.

RC4- the next step on the path to a "stable" Joomla 1.5, was released yesterday. The Joomla team is calling this release "Karibu" which they say is Swahili for "close by" as in, almost here.

The Joomlashack team is very engaged in testing RC4 and we're impressed by the many bugs that Joomla volunteers have squashed. While it's "close by," RC4 is still not 100% stable, and you shouldn't yet rely on it to deliver your critically important web content.

When will Joomla 1.5 move into the realm of "stable?" According to Joomla.org:

Joomla! 1.5 RC4 is by far the most stable release of version 1.5 to date. It has undergone a great deal of testing and bug fixing since RC3 and is considered very close to stable Karibu marks an important milestone in 1.5's development, as barring any major issues we believe it will be the last release candidate, with the next release being the big one Joomla! 1.5 stable. When that happens will in part be influenced by the Joomla! community.

So there you have it. If our Joomla community uses RC4 and tests it thoroughly, and no major problems are discovered, then the stable version of Joomla 1.5 will be coming in early 2008. Cool. Now go download and test it!




The march to a stable Joomla 1.5 quickened earlier this month with the release of RC3. Here's some helpful links about RC3.

If you're curious when Joomla 1.5 is going to "released" and "finished," better check out this perspective piece by one of Joomla's core team members and developers. Needless to say, RC3 is not the last of the RCs, as Joomla's developers believe in the "release early, release often" philosophy of open source development.

One thing's for sure- Joomla 1.5 will only improve if you use it, break it, report your problems, and offer your input. Download it today and try out Weblogic, our 1.5 native template!
