Season’s Greetings, Joomla Friends! This year has been very busy for everyone involved in Joomla development, so I’m really excited to be able to publish the results of the program.

A detailed update for Joomla's Google Summer of Code Program. With the summer winding down, find out what the students have been up to over the last few months. Learn about their project's progress and how you can get involved!
