If you are an experienced Joomla! 1.5 user, this Joomla site will seem very familiar. There are new templates and improved user interfaces, but most functionality is the same. The biggest changes are improved access control (ACL) and nested categories. This release of Joomla has strong continuity with Joomla! 1.7 while adding enhancements.
Joomla! 2.5 continues development of the Joomla Framework and CMS as a powerful and flexible way to bring your vision of the web to reality. With the administrator now fully MVC, the ability to control its look and the management of extensions is now complete.
Thanks for helping us to test Joomla!
We're getting ready for the release of Joomla and we appreciate you helping us find and fix problems as we work.
If you haven't done testing before here are some tips.
How to test
What to look for
If you find a problem please report it to the CMS Issue Tracker. You will need to register for a github.com account if you don't have one.
More Testing Ideas
You can also help Joomla by testing bug fixes and new features. A useful tool is the patchtester component which helps to simplify and automate the process. Report your feedback on the CMS Issue Tracker. If you enjoy helping Joomla this way, you may want to join the Joomla Bug Squad.
If this is your first Joomla! site or your first web site, you have come to the right place. Joomla will help you get your website up and running quickly and easily.
Start off using your site by logging in using the administrator account you created when you installed Joomla.
