Impress Media Australia has refreshed the underlying infrastructure of its website by upgrading to the Joomla 1.5 content management system.

As well as improved security, Joomla 1.5 offers more sophisticated design templates, much easier management of published stories and and making it easier for search engines to find and index content.

Joomla is an open source content management system that allows stylish and easy-to-manage websites. The upgrade from version Joomla 1.12 to Joomla 1.5 was undertaken by Alltraders, the specialist web hosting business that maintains the www.impress.com.au website.

Alltraders director Michael O'Loughlin said many businesses were upgrading to Joomla 1.5 for the enhanced security. "With the new version, security is now an active process," he said.

"This is occurring through an ongoing audit process by teams within the not-for-profit Joomla support organisation, Open Source Matters, which is finding vulnerabilities in the code before they are publicly identified."
