Cutting Edge joomla 3.0

Joomla! 3 available now

Okay so I haven't been blogging much lately, if at all, but if the truth be told I'm not really had much to say – shock horror!

Back in April when I redesigneded this web site, I emphasised the benefits of working with as many core components as possible or should that me working with as few extensions as possible. Today I decided to put that the ultimate test. 

Joomla! 3 is scheduled for release sometime today but because I like to live dangerously, and the alternative was to do some real work, I thought I would have a go at upgrading my Joomla! 2.5 website to a test release of Joomla! 3.0.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND YOU DO THIS.  There is no need to upgrade your Joomla! 2.5 website.  I did it because I can not because it was the most sensible thing to do. 

So far the only things that I have had to do to update a few things in my template  and remove some deprecated functions from the comments plug-in.  Behind the scenes I will have to wait a little bit longer before  I will be able to reinstall JCE  and Akeebabackup but I hope to be able to do that this week.
