Hey Joomla fans this article titled “Version 3.0 is Coming!” published on the development team of Joomla! outlines the path that will lead to the issuance of short-term support version 3.0.

Assets also in the main new features that will be present and the update procedure.

As established new release cycle, which includes a new version every six months, has confirmed the arrival of 3.0 for the next .

So Joomla 3.0 release date is September 15!

This will be a version with a short-term (as were the 1.6 and 1.7), so this is not a version for everyone, but dedicated only to those who are interested in seeing the development of the project and less likely to use on production sites where the version 2.5 with long term support (LTS) is still the recommended level.

The adoption of a framework for the management of the template should also facilitate the development of templates and external extensions that can “lean” directly on this platform already integrated in Joomla all following the same specifications. Bootstrap support the jQuery library so that it will be integrated natively in Joomla along with MooTools.
