I had hoped to start this blog post with the news of the release of version2 of the Zen Grid Framework but alas that is not the case. Yesterday I released the Joomla 1.5 version of the Hub Joomla template (Joomla 1.6 version coming later today) which as you can see is a striking magazine styled template that comes with some beautiful large date formatting in the Joomla content as well as the k2 Joomla template that ships with the template.
So why did we release the May template in June?
For those that don't know we follow a schedule of monthly Joomla template releases, that usually means we release a template within the month that the template is designed for. Hub is the first template that missed the targeted release month.
There are a few reasons why this happened but the main reason was that we were slightly over ambitious in what we wanted to do with the next incarnation of the Zen Grid Framework - our Joomla template framework. So it got to the point a few days ago, where we realised that while we had a killer Beta of version 2, it wasn't really stable enough for production. This lead us to the big decision to keep working on v2 and release Hub on v1.1 of the framework.
