K2 Version 3 is Coming

Fotis from JoomlaWorks in Greece has shared a video of the new version of K2 that will be coming out soon. There are no details as to when it will be released but from what we can see it looks pretty nice, clean and should add a whole new dimension to Joomla publishing.



New Media Manager

As a part of the Google Summer of Code, student Buddhima Wijeweera has been assigned the task of building the new media manager for Joomla. This is a rewrite of the existing Joomla Media manager with a whole bunch of new ideas and features to really drive the project forward.

Users in the future will be able to upload and edit images in the media manager, as well as tag and reference images. Parts of the media manager will be database referenced meaning that there will be ways to access images via database queries and searches.
