Joomla 1.7 Alpha version released

by Elaine on June 11, 2011

Yes. Can you believe it. Joomla 1.7 Alpha and Beta versions are scheduled to come out all by the end of June. In July is when you can download Joomla 1.7. A month after that Joomla 1.6 will no longer be supported and next year Joomla 1.5 will “reach end of life”, which I assume means will no longer be supported.

The planned milestones are:

05 June – Joomla alpha 1 released for public testing
10 June – Feature freeze to prepare for beta release
13 June – Joomla beta 1 to be released for public testing
27 June – Joomla beta 2 to be released for public testing
4 July – Version 11.1 of the Joomla Platform to be released
10 July – Joomla 1.7 GA released
10 August – Joomla 1.6 reaches end of life and is no longer supported
January 2012 – Next version of Joomla is released
April 2012 – Joomla 1.5 reaches end of life
