This Web site is powered by Joomla! The software and default templates on which it runs are Copyright 2005-2008 Open Source Matters. The sample content distributed with Joomla! is licensed under the Joomla! Electronic Documentation License.All data entered into this Web site and templates added after installation, are copyrighted by their respective copyright owners.If you want to distribute, copy, or modify Joomla!, you are welcome to do so under the terms of the GNU General Public License. If you are unfamiliar with this license, you might want to read ‘How To Apply These Terms To Your Program’ and the ‘GNU General Public License FAQ’.

The Joomla! licence has always been GPL.

If you’re new to Web publishing systems, you’ll find that Joomla! delivers sophisticated solutions to your online needs. It can deliver a robust enterprise-level Web site, empowered by endless extensibility for your bespoke publishing needs. Moreover, it is often the system of choice for small business or home users who want a professional looking site that’s simple to deploy and use. We do content right.So what’s the catch? How much does this system cost?

Well, there’s good news … and more good news! Joomla! 1.5 is free , it is released under an Open Source license – the GNU/General Public License v 2.0. Had you invested in a mainstream, commercial alternative, there’d be nothing but moths left in your wallet and to add new functionality would probably mean taking out a second mortgage each time you wanted something adding!

Joomla!  Changes   all that …
Joomla! is different from the normal models for content management software. For a start, it’s not complicated. Joomla! has been developed for everybody, and anybody can develop it further. It is designed to work (primarily) with other Open Source, free, software such as PHP, MySQL, and Apache.

It is easy to install and administer, and is reliable. Joomla! doesn’t even require the user or administrator of the system to know HTML to operate it once it’s up and running.

To get the perfect Web site with all the functionality that you require for your particular application may take additional time and effort, but with the Joomla! Community support that is available and the many Third Party Developers actively creating and releasing new Extensions for the 1.5 platform on an almost daily basis, there is likely to be something out there to meet your needs. Or you could develop your own Extensions and make these available to the rest of the community.

As with previous releases, Joomla! provides a unified and easy-to-use framework for delivering content for Web sites of all kinds. To support the changing nature of the Internet and emerging Web technologies, Joomla! required substantial restructuring of its core functionality and we also used this effort to simplify many challenges within the current user interface. Joomla! 1.5 has many new features.In Joomla! 1.5, you’ll notice:

  • Substantially improved usability, manageability, and scalability far beyond the original Mambo foundations
  • Expanded accessibility to support internationalisation, double-byte characters and right-to-left support for Arabic, Farsi, and Hebrew languages among others
  • Extended integration of external applications through Web services and remote authentication such as the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
  • Enhanced content delivery, template and presentation capabilities to support accessibility standards and content delivery to any destination
  • A more sustainable and flexible framework for Component and Extension developers
  • Backward compatibility with previous releases of Components, Templates, Modules, and other Extensions
