After a couple months not get my hands on Joomla CMS, because a lot of workloads at end of year for advanced wordpress template building and a couple new CMS which is i cannot avoid as my office demand me to, a good news just come from Joomla Developers. A very great new year gift to have the new Joomla 1.6 Released this January 2011.
I downloaded the package from here, well i haven’t workaround with all the new features, but the changes that i really happy with this Joomla 1.6 than the earlier release are :
- The “section” is gone, the new category manager allow you to have nested category tree with unlimited depth, ya it will be a lot of easier to manage many content without confusing section.
- The ACL (Access Control List) make a lot of option to manage the user group access / restriction you don’t need 3rd party ACL plugins anymore, managing a community site with user generated content is never been easier than before.
- About the template management, seems great now you can assign various template directly from the content page this save alot of time for template assignment.. i haven’t find out what is changes on the templating framework yet. i’ll get back with this later (my own version of Joomla 1.6 Templating Framework).
Finally, thanks to the Joomla Developer worldwide for the hardwork to make Joomla better for everyone!!
