Joomla 1.6 – What’s new? Presentation by Andrew Eddie

Joomla 1.6 alpha is already here, and the beta version will be released in August 2009.In this presentation Andrew Eddie explains the changes and the new features of Joomla 1.6. Unfortunately, like with the case of Joomla 1.5, this is not going to be a simple upgrade (currently there is no upgrade plan). The good news is that ACL and Nested Categories will be included. We at, plan to start modifying our extensions to work with Joomla 1.6 within 2-3 months, and hopefully by the time it’s stable, we will be supporting it (no promises though).


  • If you’re still working with Joomla 1.0, there is no real point for you to switch to Joomla 1.5, because soon, you will have to switch to Joomla 1.6
