joomla 3 explainedWe released Joomla! Explained almost exactly three years ago.

That guide to Joomla 2.5 became the best-selling and best-reviewed Joomla book.

Now, we're delighted to announce a new edition of the book: Joomla 3 Explained. The book has been almost completely re-written to deal with Joomla 3.

Joomla 3 Explained will be available at the beginning of August. To celebrate we're holding a special "Joomla 3 Day".

Joomla 3 Day will be like an online Joomla Day. We're going to have a series of presentations and invite people to hang out, learn and ask questions of the expert presenters. The whole day will focus on Joomla 3.

We also have a really special offer for everyone who buys Joomla 3 Explained. Read on to find out more ...
