Joomla Logo The Joomla! developers have announced that Microsoft has signed the Joomla! Contributor Agreement (JCA) and has begun contributing code. According to a blog post by Authentication Tools project for Joomla! developer Sam Moffatt, some of Microsoft's code is already present in the Joomla! 1.6 trunk. Moffatt says that "it's a big deal to have a major company contributing to the codebase", adding that, "the fact that it's Microsoft contributing to a GPL project is big news."
