Joomla’s Web Installation in Indonesian

Some of us might notice that with the release of Joomla 1.5! Beta, the web installation of Joomla! is now available in more than 30 languages, including our national language, Bahasa Indonesia. 🙂 My sincere thanks to all members of the Indonesian translation team for all their effort to make this happens.

Please have a try and let me know if you found something unusual with the translation.

Qur’an Component for Joomla! 1.0.x

Not long time ago, Sartaj Chowdhury of Muslim Online has contacted me regarding the release of the Qur’an component for Joomla! 1.0.x. Due to my personal situation at that time, I couldn’t release the news right away. Personally I am very glad that finally someone did this. Thank you, Sartaj.

Anyone who is interested to get a copy of the component, can download it over here at Muslim Online.
