What’s New in 1.5?

As with previous releases, Joomla! provides a unified and easy-to-use framework for delivering content for Web sites of all kinds. To support the changing nature of the Internet and emerging Web technologies, Joomla! required substantial restructuring of its core functionality and we also used this effort to simplify many challenges within the current user interface. Joomla! 1.5 has many new features.

In Joomla! 1.5, you”ll notice:

  • Substantially improved usability, manageability, and scalability far beyond the original Mambo foundations
  • Expanded accessibility to support internationalisation, double-byte characters and right-to-left support for Arabic, Farsi, and Hebrew languages among others
  • Extended integration of external applications through Web services
  • Enhanced content delivery, template and presentation capabilities to support accessibility standards and content delivery to any destination
  • A more sustainable and flexible framework for Component and Extension developers
  • Backward compatibility with previous releases of Components, Templates, Modules, and other Extensions

Tide Mill Organic Farm – Seaside Wreath

We received the gift of a Tide Mill Wreath. Such a beautifully made gift and expressive of the season – evergreen boughs cut right here in Maine. Read about their wonderful farm.

Tide Mill Organic Farm – Seaside Wreath

Our unique Seaside Wreath combines the beauty of balsam fir with the softness of our native White Pine (Maine’s state tree). The wreath is accented with Blue Mussel shells and sprigs of Sea Heather from our seashores, complementing the hand-tied burgundy bow.
