Joomla! 3 is Now Available from BitNami

We are pleased to announce that the newly released Joomla 3 is now available on BitNami!  The BitNami Joomla! 3 stack is recommended for developers and early adopters. As with all BitNami Stacks, you can deploy it for free in one click on your own computer, in a virtual machine or on Amazon cloud.

A few of the major improvements in this latest release of Joomla! are:

    • Mobile-ready, both for visitors and administrative areas.
    • Improved, more user friendly interface for the admin panel.
    • Developer tools that give you standardized back-end and front-end interfaces.
    • jQuery support.

Because all BitNami Stacks are completely self-contained and ready-to-run, they make it very easy to try the latest versions of your favorite open source applications without compromising the rest of your operating environment. They can also be removed from your system in minutes by either deleting the VM or running the uninstaller that is bundled with all native installers.

In addition to the BitNami native installers, VMs and AMIs, we also provide simplified deployment and management of Joomla! in the cloud with BitNami Cloud Hosting. Our cloud hosting platform allows you to add multiple applications to your cloud servers, choose from multiple operating systems, have greater flexibility around the machine specifications and provides automatic backups, built-in monitoring, one click cloning, multi-account management and other features that make it easier to run your favorite BitNami apps on the Amazon Cloud. Sign up for our free developer plan to check it out!
