Howdy pardner...

I'd like to welcome you to this here page o'mine, which has been whipped up in no time flat to give some support and outside discussion to the presently stunned Mambo open source project and community.

Why you say? What the heck is this all about? Well pilgrim, you've found yer way to just the place ya'll need to be to get those queries answered. Sure 'nuff this here place is where we can maybe have a chuckle over what's been goin' down of late, maybe even open some eyes to where this all could be headed.

So kick back in front o' the fire and we'll spin some yarns about what could be the biggest showdown Mambo has ever seen in the ol' west

Thankye kindly fer visitin',

Joomla! 1.0, new J-Forge, released!

That's right pilgrims, the first release of the new Joomla! project has been released, along with a shiny new project site - J-Forge.

Well, right now the project site seems to be called "Joomla! Developer" and the page title still says "Sourceforge - Welcome", but I reckon J-Forge sounds much sweeter. "Sourceforge?", I hear you askin', well it sure is pardner. The new Joomla developer projects home is runnin' on Sourceforge Enterprise Edition, not that ol' shoddy G-Forge software that Mamboforge was usin'.

Nope, the new J-Forge is powered by the top of the range Sourceforge system, and right spanky it is too, I might add.

Coincidin' with the launch of J-Forge is the release of Joomla! 1.0. Seems like the team are plannin' to take the road to "4.5.3" more sedately and sanely than Miro have chosen to, with this 1.0 bein' primarily what would have been, or some such. Those ol' Mambo versions just confuse this ol' cowboy.

Anyways, so this is mostly a rebrandin', bug fixin', security hole pluggin' release. Good thing too, I hear word that Miro's Mambo has a mighty nasty issue in the code that could cause serious problems for unfortunate users of their software.

In fact, lookin' at the release note just now, seems like quite a few serious problems have been fixed with security. Issues that Miro/Mambo haven't even made a move to correct at this point, that could leave any Mambo site wide open to attack.

I'll add here that these are also issues documented by the team and were a part of the release they'd planned before the split. Miro has this info, likely their one remaining developer is somewhat overloaded currently.

Head honcho over at the Joomla! ranch, Andrew Eddie, commented on the release. “Baby Joomla! has cut its first tooth with the release of Joomla! v1.0,” he said. “This will be the first milestone in the Joomla! story … everyone knows how important this day is, so everyone should celebrate the freedom.”

So enough writin' and readin', let's go Joomla!

Thankye kindly,

The Lone Mamber
