Your installation includes sample data, designed to show you some of the options you have for building your website. In addition to information about Joomla! there are two sample "sites within a site" designed to help you get started with builidng your own site.

The first site is a simple site about Australian Parks. It shows you you an quickly and easily build a personal site with just the building blocks that are part of Joomla!. It includes a personal blog, weblinks, and a very simple image gallery.

The second site is slightly more complex and represents what you might do if you are building a site for a small business, in this case a Fruit Shop.

In building either style site, or something completely different, you will probably want to add extensions and either create or purchase your own template. Many Joomla! users start off by modifying the templates that come with the core distribution so that they include special images and other design elements that relate to their site's focus.

Joomla! 1.6 continues development of the Joomla Framework and CMS as a powerful and flexible way to bring your vision of the web to reality. With the administrator now fully MVC, the ability to control its look and the management of extensions is now complete.

Working with multiple template styles and overrides for the same views, creating the design you want is easier than it has ever been. Limiting support to PHP 5.x and above and ending legacy support for Joomla 1.0 extensions makes Joomla! lighter and faster than ever. Languages files can now be overridden without having your changes lost during an upgrade. With the proper xml your users update extensions with a single click.

Access control lists are now incorporated using a new system developed for Joomla!. The ACL system is designed with developers in mind, so it is easy to incorporate into your extensions. The new nested sets libraries allow you to incorporate infinitely deep categories but also to use nested sets in a variety of other ways.

A new forms library makes creating all kinds of user interaction simple. MooTools 1.2 provides a highly flexible javascript framework that is a major advance over MooTools 1.0.

New events throughout the core make integration of your plugins where you want them a snap.
