Join us for a Bug Squashing event at the upcoming Joomla! Day Minnesota at the Mall of America on Sunday, July 19th, the day after the conference! Don’t forget to book an extra day on your trip if you plan on attending.

If you have never worked with code before, no worries at all! We will show you how to test and work with bug patches and how the process works! Our goal is to work through the issue tracker and get through as much as possible! If you have experience working with code, that’s just as great! We can show you the process of creating patches and adding it to our tracker.

The Joomla! Production Leadership Team is pleased to announce a new Release Leader for the Joomla! 3.5 release. Roberto Segura, the former Release Leader decided to step down due to family and work commitments, preventing him to dedicate time to the release.

As a result Roland Dalmulder has taken up the position of the “3.5 Release Leader” and will be assisted by George Wilson, both of the Production Leadership Team. Roland, as leader of the Joomla! Bug Squad, has great experience on working with Joomla! Contributors.

The Joomla! Bug Squad (JBS) is pleased to announce the addition of the new Bug Squad Co-Leader. We welcome Tobias Zulauf to the team.

Leading the JBS is a big task. The group is large and there are many tasks at hand. Combine this with a position in the Production Leadership Team (PLT), you will soon see that there are not enough hours in a day for one person. We needed to find help for Roland Dalmulder - PLT member and current JBS lead.

As was announced earlier this year, the Joomla! project is actively working toward shutting down JoomlaCode.org. In addition to assisting existing users with migrating data, we have also been busy managing our own data as well and would like to provide this update on our progress.

In a reorganising of the Joomla! web properties, the PLT has decided to close down the Joomla! User Experience website (https://ux.joomla.org). This news isn’t really new news. Discussions about moving the JUX forum started in 2013 but the steps necessary to move and shut the forum down were never completed. Is the Production Leadership Team still interested in a Joomla! user’s experience? You can bet it is!
