Trying out Joomla 1.6

Joomla 1.6 has finally advanced to the beta stage so we are testing the product now. J 1.6 builds on 1.5 but offers advanced workflow, which is sorely lacking in the current version.  Joomla! 1.6 key features are:
  • New Access Control System - Allows site administrators control over who can view and manage content (including extension permission management).
  • Unlimited Depth Organizational Model - Gives site administrators and content creators user-defined category levels that allow for the creation of a category tree with as many or as few levels for organizing articles and other content as needed.
  • One-Click Extension Updates - Allows users to keep sites secure and controlled by simplifying the process of updating extensions.
  • Semantic XHTML Layouts - Provides a better baseline for content presentation. 
Look for some documentation and a review on the Collabowrite site in the coming weeks.
