Joomla 1.6 is designed to offer better site control and a more polished user experience. There are a variety of improvements to the software, enhancing website management and access, a more robust organizational structure for content control, and various other user-experience improvements throughout the software.
â€œWith new features and capabilities such as the hierarchical design of the access control system, semantic XHTML layouts, one-click extension updates and multi-language functionality, Joomla 1.6 has evolved to become the most user-friendly and powerful tool yet for developing aÂ webÂ presence,â€ said Ryan Ozimek, president of Open Source Matters, a not-for-profit created to provide organization, legal, and financial support to the Joomla project. â€œThis has been accomplished through the tireless feedback and work on 1.6 by the thousands of members of theÂ JoomlaÂ community over the past year.â€
