    I love to use 1.6 and I have just started to use 1.7. The difference with 1.7 is that the engine upon which the Joomla CMS runs - into it’s own product. I am thoroughly impressed from my experience so far.

      No way... Wordpress is so much more limited than joomla. Joomla 1.5 beats wordpress hands down.... 1.6 and 1.7 just expands the gap in between them as a CMS. Both have their uses, but Joomla is evolving into a very solid and strong player. Way stronger than wordpress.

      Joomla is obviously making huge ground in expanding.. you're looking at the new corporate standard in the next year or so instead of Drupal.

        Couldn't agree more. The customization is endless. By the end of building a site you can't even tell its Joomla, looks completely custom. I could even show you some examples if ya don't believe me.

    I am doing with 1.6, also build few sites with 1.5. But too many did with WP. I can tell everybody that its better than Joomla. Its really user friendly and easy.

    Functionality wise more better and smoother, but still you can face some problem while you need to integrate new modules or component therefore i would better suggest to stick to 1.5/1.6 currently until it is saturated.

    With Joomla 1.7 version:

    ● The CMS installation process becomes as simple as possible

    ● New versions would be more time-bound and frequent

    ● Migration to the latest version of Joomla becomes more easy and more frequent

    ● Security advantages would be available that comes by running the newest code

    Joomla 1.7 is beneficial in many ways when compared to the 1.6 versions, like:

    ● Enables new developments away from Joomla

    ● More security protection than ever

    ● More Ease to upgrade to the next version

    ● Provides more ease to developers than ever

    ● More ease for content management

    In the previous versions of Joomla, the Webmasters have to download the separate patch file in order to upgrade their Joomla to latest version. On the contrary, Joomla 1.7 includes one-click update feature, which allows users to upgrade the Joomla without any hassle. This will also remove any need of the manual upgrade in the existing management system.

      That wasn't the question. The OP asked about different Joomla versions. Try to stick to the topic...

    I'm on with Joomla 1.5 so far. Only created one site with Joomla 1.6, and didn't like it much.

    It will be interesting to try my hands on Joomla 1.7. Best thing about Joomla is that there are so many 3rd party (commercial vendors) that it's easy to find the updated templates and modules.

    In order for Quick Update to fulfill its attractive promise of simplicity your site needs to be fully up-to-date, i.e. running Joomla 1.6.5, and all its installed extensions need to the compatible with 1.7. running extensions. While the blog urges those running 1.6 to upgrade the situation is far from clear for those still working with 1.5. Its advice is:

    if your Joomla 1.5 site is working well, I would not move it yet. Joomla 1.5 will be supported through April 2012. Joomla 1.8 will be released in January 2012, and it is a long-term release, meaning it will be supported for 18 months instead of 6 months.

    The best feature I can see is the update of the framework which has been made less complicated and I believe it is a lot stable than the shaky 1.6 that I believe was released in haste.
