As many of you may have heard, Joomla! 1.6 finally arrived in mid January. This is a significant upgrade from Joomla! 1.5 which most of the Trinity Web Hosting sites are using. We are working on an upgrade path that will be efficient and inexpensive for our users, but it will be a few months yet before we start recommending the upgrade. Along with the Joomla! upgrade, all of the Joomla! extensions that our customers use also need to come out with a Joomla! 1.6! version. We use well established, reliable extension providers, so nearly all of them have released their Joomla! 1.6! versions, but we are also waiting for Joomla! template providers to provide a variety of Joomla! 1.6 templates for our customers to choose from, and we are evaluating the best way to convert Joomla! 1.5 templates to Joomla! 1.6 templates, so our customers don't have to change their sites when they do the upgrade.
So, the short story is, Joomla! 1.6 is out, but that is just one step of many. We want to make sure everything is ready before we recommend the upgrade to our customers, so it is as seamless and inexpensive as possible.
