I met Joomla! lead developer this weekend, and attended a Joomla! 1.5  
demo.  Joomla! 1.5 is the next Joomla! release, currently in alpha/ 
beta.  It will mark the first important release since Joomla!  
"spooned" from Mambo.

Notable changes were:

  - A new install system with a very basic notion of install profiles!
  - Internationalization: interface translation only
  - Database abstraction layer
  - Separation of logic and presentation layer
  - Improved APIs, making it a better developer platform

Clearly, they have been playing catch-up with Drupal. :-)

They also stated that Joomla! 2.0, the version after Joomla! 1.5 will  
have a node system like Drupal.
