Microsoft signs up Joomla! Contributor Agreement
Microsoft is contributing more stuff to the open source software!
The software giant has signed up the Joomla! Contributor Agreement.
And some of their code is already part of the Joomla! 1.6 trunk.
Joomla! is already available through the Microsoft’s Web Platform Installer.
The developers behind the Joomla! project are working hard to make it perform better on the Microsoft’s IIS web server.
Joomla! developers said in a blog post about Microsoft’s involvement in the project:
For Joomla! 1.6, Don from the IIS team has generously donated some code to get WinCache integration for Joomla! 1.6 included. This code is sitting in trunk right now and will be released together with the rest of 1.6, however you don’t have to wait to try it out. There is a blog available that explains how to get this up and running with Joomla! 1.5.
