Joomla 1.5 will provide a unified and easy-to-use framework for delivering content for websites of all kinds. To support the changing nature of the Internet and emerging web technologies, Joomla required substantial restructuring of its core functionality and we also used this effort to simplify many challenges within the current user interface. Using Joomla 1.5 you will have an easy upgrade path to future versions. Joomla 1.5 beta delivers more simplicity for the user and much more power for developers. The innovation and skill of our development team is clearly setting higher and higher standards. One of the more significant functional improvements are search engine friendly URLs, easily implemented within the global configuration. With SEF URLs in place, system generated duplicate content is eliminated, greatly improving site search engine optimization.
