CMS or Framework?

Joomla developers are currently working on multiple projects: the Joomla CMS (Version 3.7 (Q2 2017), Version 3.8 (2017) and Version 4 (2017-2018). Additionally there are many side projects related to testing, Docker, core extensions and other projects.

The CMS is the very popular and well known FOSS content management system. The Framework existed within the CMS as a tightly coupled set of utility packages and classes. Eventually developers decided they wanted to work with just those utilities and write new applications not coupled to the CMS. The Joomla Issue Tracker is the first Application built on top of the new Joomla Framework and is currently nearing it's first stable release.

The project supports all of these initiatives, as does Google Summer of Code. On our ideas list you will find projects related.
