Looking for a great template to use on your new Joomla 1.5-powered website?
Joomlashack now has NINE Joomla templates that are "1.5 native" and ready for you, and more on the way!
Our latest template is Earthblog, a 1.5 only release.
Last month we released Relevant, also a 1.5 only template.
MyTemplate (for use with our new Template Builder), Aqualine, Weblogic, Vintage, Aqualine Noir, Lightfast, and Simplicity work with both versions of Joomla.
If you already own one of these templates, log into your Shop account and you'll find a 1.5-ready version there for you to download.

Joomla! 1.5.2 has hit the shelves and is described as a "normal maintenance update" with some bug fixes and minor enhancements. Check it out. It's code named "Woi" but we don't know why.
The Joomla! Project also released its goals for the next release (1.5.3), which will offer more support for OpenID and many other improvements. Check them goals out, too!

We feel we are pretty knowledgeable here at Joomlashack about SEO, heck, we even wrote a book or two about it. We also know a good deal when we see one.
Last year Steve Burge of www.alledia.com came up with a new club concept, the Joomla SEO club. He had already written a great ebook about SEO, and then he bundled it together with online access and a forum to create Joomla's first non-template club!
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.
