Joomla Has Now Won a Packt Open Source Award Three Times Since 2006



NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/11 -- Joomla, one of the world's most popular open source content management systems (CMS) used for everything from websites to blogs to Intranets, today announced Joomla has won the Packt Publishing award for the top open source CMS. Now in its sixth year, many consider the Packt Open Source Award as a top honor for an open source project. Joomla won the award based on a combination of public voting and input by a panel of judges consisting of open source luminaries.


"Although around since 2005, Joomla really reinvented itself this year with the introduction of Joomla 1.6 and 1.7, the first product releases for the CMS since 2008," said Julian Copes of Packt Publishing. "Furthermore, Joomla realized dramatic growth this year as evidenced by its number of downloads and documented government sites powered by Joomla. We are proud to honor Joomla with its third Packt Open Source Award since we launched it six years ago."
