YOOtheme, Joomla 1.5 and IE7

On the 21st of May YOOtheme announced that they will not be supporting Joomla 1.5 and Internet Explorer 7. This means that they will not be producing templates for Joomla 1.5. Joomla 1.5 originally had an end of live period of Aprilbut due to popular demand the Joomla developers decided to increase the Joomla 1.5 CMS to September.

YOOtheme said that June's template will be the last ever template that will both support the Joomla 1.5 CMS and Internet Explorer 7.

A snippet from YOOtheme's blog:

"Joomla 1.5 reached its offical end-of-life in April. Most theme and extension developers already dropped Joomla 1.5 support and we also think it is time to say good bye. This is why we will stop developing templates for Joomla 1.5. The next June template will be the last template available for Joomla 1.5. The same goes for Widgetkit and ZOO.

Internet Explorer 7 was originally released inand does not support the latest web standards and technologies compared to modern browsers which offer a rich support for HTML5 and CSS3. Its market share fell under 3% worldwide this month and many companies like Google or Open Source CMS like Drupal dropped IE7 support for their upcoming releases. So we also decided to discontinue IE7 browser support for our themes and extensions from July 1ston."
