“Microsoft has signed the JCA (Joomla! Contributor Agreement), and we've got some of their code in the Joomla! 1.6,” noted Joomla team. Joomla is a PHP-based open source content-management system (CMS) and a Model View Controller (MVC) framework that evolved from the Mambo CMS. Joomla is licensed under Version 2 or later of the GNU General Public License (GPL). According to the Joomla site, Joomla’s customers include MTV Networks Quizilla, IHOP, Harvard University and Citibank. “We've managed to get Joomla!'s package on Web Platform Installer, and it now has more than 32,000 downloads. We've also been working on making Joomla! run better on IIS. Microsoft has helped here by providing test environments (with a lot of us being Mac users, IIS testing isn't the first thing that comes to mind or the easiest thing to do). For Joomla! 1.6, Don from the IIS team has generously donated some code to get WinCache integration for Joomla! 1.6 included,” noted.
