Hello all,

I have a crucial question.

i am gonna create a new website in Joomla although i am not following joomla news for the past year i have seen that they have release the 1.6 version.

Should i create the website in 1.5 or 1.6? what do you suggest?what is considered as best from all points of views?

I see in google that many people will stay in 1.5 but i guess that the life of 1.5 will end soon though, non?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions, Nekmak

I would suggets you go with Joomla 1.6 if the extensions you intend on using have been upgraded or you could use Joomla 1.5 and wait for Joomla 1.7 which is coming out in July 2011.

Best regards, Stefan
