joomla 2017

There are many fine achievements to reflect on as we look back on 2017. Most importantly the Joomla Project wants to say a massive “thank you” to all our volunteers. As an open source project, Joomla can only achieve what it does with the valuable contributions of our extensive global community of hard-working volunteers. On behalf of the Joomla Project, Thank You!

New York – December 15, 2017
The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) vote on Thursday December 14, 2017 to repeal Net Neutrality, while unfortunately expected, is tremendously disappointing to all believers of an open and free internet.
