JUX is closing
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!
Status of the Install from Web
Many of you may have noticed the message "Please note: Due to technical reasons we have had to disable the Install from Web Service. We are working to get it back online as soon as possible. To find extensions please use the Joomla! Extensions Directory at http://extensions.joomla.org"
Framework v2 Roadmap
After an extended period of silence, the Production Leadership Team is happy to announce that we are moving forward with planning, preparing, and ultimately releasing version 2 of the Joomla! Framework. Over the last several weeks, we have begun building a roadmap and vision for the next major version of the Framework and are now ready to share with the community for review and feedback.
JoomlaCode is closing
We recently received an email from google webmaster tools with the subject line: Hacking suspected: http://joomlacode.org/
Unfortunately, it appears that joomlacode.org is infected with content spam. When we realized this, our only concern is to protect our users. This will involve taking down the service in the very near future. This is an inconvenience for project owners using JoomlaCode to host projects for, and we are truly sorry.
