The Joomla Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Joomla 1.7.3. This is a security release. The Production Leadership Team's goal is to continue to provide regular, frequent updates to the Joomla community. Learn more about Joomla! developement at theDeveloper Site.
Since November 2011 our creative studio will sell the full version. The templates easy versions will be available free of charge. This is due to the financial aspect of the project. In one ad google we can not exist! Patterns that are not written to T3 in the near future will be fully transferred to the Framework and would have cost 5$. The final cost has not yet been approved.
Info getk2: We have just released v2.5.1 of K2, a maintenance release, fixing some minor issues as reported by the K2 Community. This release maybe "maintenance", but we have gone through some "bigger" changes regarding content setup workflow and frontend editing.
Info getk2: I'm glad that after more than a year of constant development and improvements (and a rock solid v2.4.1), K2 version 2.5.0 is now available to download. The major upgrade to 2.5.0 is that K2 is now a native Joomla! 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7 extension. But upgrades don't stop there. We have significantly improved performance, measuring up to 500% in complex sites with complex structures and pages with lots of items on them (portals, magazines etc.).
The October template will be devoted to online shop and at first will have a third-party templating expansion. We have long thought what a component is selected for the task. After going through all the components of Internet commerce for Joomla 1.7, we stopped at JoomShopping.
