Joomla 3.0 was released yesterday and it was a real rush monitoring the discussions as the hard working teams of volunteers came together to tweak the information pages and collaborate on pushing out this powerful new software and updated platform. Joomla! 3.x is optimized for users with varied technical expertise to build robust or simple mobile ready web communities and interactive online applications. This new release offers something for everyone. There are mobile ready features for meeting the current  market trends for content accessibility, it is easy to use which makes it a compelling option over other simplified CMS tools because you can scale to future proof your online presence. Joomla 3.x also has some fantastic new development tools to entice the development community. One of the major strengths of using Joomla  vs "the other guys" are the magnitude of developers supporting the Joomla CMS and platform globally. So in my book Joomla 3.0 is taking big leaps for taking away and strengthening market share from the other CMS contenders such as Drupal and Wordpress with their cutting edge new features, dramatically improved ease of use, responsive mobile ready user interfaces and more efficient development tools.
