Joomla 2.5 released – New Features

Joomla 2.5 was released on the 24 of January which is the official release after Joomla 1.7

The new features include:

Joomla Smart Search

Smart search offers a faster, more user-friendly search experience for your visitors. It features auto-completion, which allows the user to find relevant content by just typing the first several letters of a word.

Multi-Database Support

Multiple database support makes it possible to run the Joomla on many different databases types other than MySQL and MySQLi. This facilitates integration and update management processes. Joomla 2.5.0 allows different drivers to be written that will support different versions of SQL databases. Current drivers exist for the MySQL and MS SQL databases, with PostgreSQL, Oracle, SQLite and PDO drivers being developed.
