To those of you who use the Joomla CMS, you would be happy to note the release of Joomla 1.7. From now on, every six months, a new version of Joomla will be released. It started with Joomla 1.6 in January 2011 as the first short term release, and it continues now with Joomla 1.7 as the second short term release.
After three short term releases, a long term release will come up. That means, that every 18 months, a long term release of Joomla will appear. The first long term release of Joomla 1.8 is expected in January 2012.
One of the nice new features in Joomla 1.7 is that it offers batch processing of articles. So now you can process access levels and even select category for move/copy of several articles in one go.
