(Page 1 of 3 )
Joomla is changing the web, there is no one better sentence to describe what this young FREE SOFTWARE project is doing from two years ago.We all know that the web permeates today all sides of our life and therefore is perfectly comprehensible that Joomla, been born as a CMS for simplified construction of sites of all types, is interesting a lot of people around the world for the incredible amount of its FREE extensions, that are available through the central site extension.joomla.org, and for its large development community that give support and constantly enhancements of features.
But now Joomla wouldn't not be more considered only a CMS, whatever are the applicative targets in which we are interested to use it for. The time of standalone applications is ending and therefore we should understand that a revolutionary web application platform as Joomla is the right solution that all people are waiting for. The new version of Joomla, currently in Beta2 state, is an innovative and intuitive implementation of the MVC pattern, a famous generalized programming architecture that force the developers to write a more scalable and manageable code and that give to others a lot of competitive advantages as User Interface separation, lower development cost, greater reusability and maximized stability and adaptability.
Joomla 1.5, that's the version number of the new platform, has been rewrote from the scratch by the Core Development Team to obtain a very powerful framework that will boost web developer productivity and that will maximize the users experience. Obviously the Core Team don't know what will be the really boom that this new project would generate on the web but we can admit for sure that the stable release is attended from thousands of people.
Joomla 1.5 have the great merit of not attempt to be a "all purpose application in itself", trying instead to give users a solid platform around which can revolve various types of third party developed web applications. Joomla 1.5 is using moreover only well supported and diffused technologies as PHP and MySQL and it join these ones with an Enterprise oriented vision.
