Joomla 1.6 Status
Joomla 1.6 is in beta test right now. It's currently at beta 7. When will it be ready for general use? The standard answer is 'When it's ready.' The issue tracker currently lists about 60 'confirmed' bugs, about 20 'in progress', about 45 'pending', 15 'in review' for about 140 or so bugs that need to be resolved. Hopefully they'll get nailed in upcoming weeks, then we'll get 1.6 release candidate this fall. So when will we do our first 1.6 website? After 1.6 goes gold, we'll keep an eye on the extensions and templates that are 1.6 ready. After Joomla!, the required extensions, components and templates are all 1.6 ready, we'll be able to do our first 1.6 site. Before the end of the year? I hope so.
