I really loved Joomla! in its early days. I still remember working with Mambo CMS. 🙂 Yesterday Joomla 3.5 came out. Is it me or are the new features really dissapointing? Personally I think Joomla! is in an identity crisis. Is it about content? Is it about managing a website? Is it a platform? It’s a bit everything, thus nothing? This raises questions like:
What is a CMS nowadays?
Is it still about the content?
Why is WordPress so popular?
Will content manage solutions like prismic.io and contentful.com survive?
Can we discover any trends?
I don’t have the answers, the question has enough value for now (for me at least). Feel free to share your thoughts though!
About Joomla 3.5… I tried to find a more complete list of the features, but the documentation wasn’t up to date yet. :-(.
