We're on Joomla! 1.5 now...

Now that Joomla! 1.5 is available for quite some time, we finally switched our main site to Joomla! 1.5. The upgrade turned out to be easier than we thought. In the end it was just plugging out the old site and switching on the new site.

The component mtwMigrator did a great job in helping us to migrate the data form the old database to the new one. Even the comments from jomComment were automatically transferred. Very easy.

I decided to keep the template now, before we think about a redesign. Converting it to J! 1.5 was already done when we upgraded the extensions site.

You might also have already noticed our new links?! For the first time we're using search-engine-friendly links here on virtuemart.net. You can access the downloads now via /downloads. Nice, isn't it?

The frontpage got a clean "redesign", it was overloaded before. Now it's easier to find your way to the information you need.

But what do you think? Do you like the new links and frontpage?
