Joomla, one of the most popular content management systems (CMS), is finally releasing version 3.0, which bets heavily on Twitter’s Bootstrap framework to make responsive, mobile-friendly designs available to users immediately.

A number of improvements have been made since Joomla’s last major release (v2.5), but the CMS’ move to make responsive design a native feature shows it has quite a bit of fight left in it, at least when it comes to competing with other open source CMS communities. The proliferation of countless devices of varying screen sizes means the Web has to quickly adapt to remain remotely user-friendly, and Joomla is making sure it doesn’t fall behind the curve.

As Web developers will note, responsive designs can certainly be built with WordPress, but WordPress doesn’t provide native support: now even Joomla’s admin backend is responsive. This is quite an interesting change, especially considering that a claimed 3% of the Web uses Joomla.

In addition to responsive design support, Joomla users can also expect other features like PostgreSQL driver support, the ability to copy a template, the ability to install language packages directly from the extension manager and more. To learn more, visit the link below.
