How Joomla! 1.6 Arrived
The transition from Mambo to Joomla! was rather seamless. The Mambo license permitted others to take the code and start their own projects. In “open source” parlance, Joomla! is a “fork” of Mambo that now runs as a completely separate project with an increasing number of code differences in the program’s core platform. As a result of this “forking” by Joomla! from Mambo in 2005, the headquarters of Joomla! shifted from Australia to Europe, resulting in a major ground swell of interest in Joomla! across Europe as a Website platform that was available at no cost.
Many thousands of Websites are built on the Joomla! 1.0 platform, mostly for Websites outside of the United States where Joomla! has been a little slow in catching on as a Website development tool. More information is available
on the Joomla! wiki at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joomla.
Joomla! 1.0 has progressed through code improvements up to version 1.0.15. At that point, the Joomla! team discontinued support and shifted emphasis to a completely reworked package for Joomla! and introduced version 1.5
in early 2008. The changes and enhancements were plentiful and resulted in a greatly improved CMS product.
Joomla! 1.5 jumped the Atlantic Ocean and became more popular on this side of the pond. Joomla! now has a huge following in Europe, the United States, and other countries across the world.
