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.
