The Joomla! feature tracker is on fire and filled with awesome new features that might well tip the scale in the open source CMS market.
In true Joomla - all together - spirit everyone has been contributing to make our CMS even better and friendlier for first-time, intermediate, advanced and expert users.
As of yesterday, the joomlacode.org project area has 70 new features marked as ‘Ready for review’ or ‘Pending’. There are some very high potential features that will surely change the way people see and use Joomla.
The new features that are in the pipeline target many different perspectives as they address user interface improvements, missing enterprise functionality and new possibilities for third party extensions.
The following is just a randomly ordered short list of what may be considered as major potential new features that may be included - if you help the process - in the next Joomla 3.2 release:
This is only a small subset of new features earmarked for inclusion in Joomla 3.2. You can see all features on the Joomla Features Tracker and make your own short list!
Are you excited? How can I help, you ask?
Join the Joomla! Bug Squad (JBS) and help the testing process. There is a great new tool to help you test new pull requests. To test a feature, just download the patchtester component and test immediately any feature directly from the latest corresponding github version for the corresponding pull-request !
Once done testing, simply reply to the tracker item (registration on joomlacode.code required) and reply with your tests in details, preceeded by a @test success or failed line! Each feature request needs at least 2 successful tests (the more the better) to be included. So you can make a big difference now for 3.2 with only a small time investment.
If you are a Joomla user and rely on Joomla for your websites, then help yourself now by testing today features and code that you will be using tomorrow. The more we test, the more new quality features will get into Joomla 3.2.
