JOOMLA! BACKGROUND
Joomla! was the result of a fork of Mambo by the
Joomla! development team on August 17, 2005.
Andrew Eddie, AKA "MasterChief" wrote letter to
community... A little more than one thousand people
had joined the opensourcematters.org web site
within a day
Joomla! (Joomla 1.0.0) was released on September
16, 2005. Joomla 1.5 released Spring 2008.
It is the English spelling of the Arabic (Swahili) word
jumla
(
ﺔﻠﻤﺟ
) meaning
"all together" or "as a whole", as well as "sentence" (as in, phrase).

Last year’s report (2008) found little to differentiate the
three systems, at least in terms of market share. This year
(2009) it appears that Joomla! is taking the lead in several
key metrics. While the race is far from won, it does seem
that a leader is emerging from the pack and that leader
appears to be Joomla!. One of the most compelling
findings of the survey was that Joomla! led WordPress in
current usage by more than 6.5 percentage points and lead
Drupal by almost 7 points. Given the dominance Joomla!
shows in this key metric, together with consistent across-
the-board strength in brand recognition, brand familiarity
and other mindshare measures, it is hard to reach any
conclusion other than this: Joomla! is the web’s most
popular open source content management system.

1.6 TO THE FUTURE
J
oomla 1.6 is the next generation of Joomla, the most popular Open
Source Content Management System in the world.
The broad goals of Joomla 1.6 are to:
implement an expanded access control system
implement a nested categories solution;
and standardise the way extensions are built using
the MVC framework.
To achieve those things there is a lot of other ancillary work to be
done, but those are the highlights of this new version.
“Think big and
donʼt listen to people
who tell you it canʼt be
done. Lifeʼs too short to
think small.”
