As Year 2011 arrived with birds fallen from sky and fish died in the river, Joomla! Community is feeling assured that we have Joomla! 1.6 already in the Release Candidate phase. Hopefully Joomla! 1.6 will reach stable release status before the end of the world.

Two weeks before the end of year 2010 Joomla! Development Team brought Joomla! 1.6 out of the beta stage and released the first Release Candidate version. There is no more High or Medium High issues in the tracker, and security audit will be performed on Joomla! 1.6 codes.

This RC1 version is still for evaluation purpose. Joomla! Team recommends against using it on production servers. However, with Joomla! 1.6 out of beta, it may be time for Joomla! users to start building sites with it to get some hand-on experiences. See the official announcement.

Happy New Year!
