It has been a little bit quiet in the past months on the blog. Some rumoured that Nooku is death, others claimed we moved to Mars, … in good Nooku tradition no news is good news! Stick to the code, right?!
Those of you who followed us closely have noticed the constant stream of progress at lightning speed. Anything slower, is simply not fast enough.
Here is a little big update right from the coding frontline. Make yourself a coffee, get a beer, sit back relax. Here we go!
The Nooku code base has been moved to Git at the beginning of the year. The SVN repositories are abandoned. They are probably invested with vermin, bugs, and other little unwanted creatures. Lights have been turned off, go there on your own accord. You have been warned!
The Nooku codebase has been brought back to onto 2 spaces on Assembla: Nooku Framework & Nooku Server.

The 17th of April 2012 marked the end of the state-of-the-art content translation tool for Joomla. The Nooku team is officially announcing the sunset of Nooku Content.
With the end of life of Joomla 1.5 coming up at the end of the month and the integrated multilingual capabilities that are now available in Joomla 2.5, we feel there is no longer a need for a separate multilingual solution for Joomla.
With the sunset of Nooku Content, we are putting all our focus on growing Nooku as a free and open source web application platform.
As Nooku starts its 5th year, we will slowly leave our Joomla roots behind and wander off into the wider PHP galaxy. Exciting times!
But first, the tool that speaks your language is bidding adieu and we thank all our partners who helped us build Nooku Content.
How time flies… Today, Nooku is 4 years old! It has been an interesting journey! A journey of inspiration, creativity, collaboration… Of pushing boundaries.
In the past 4 years, we got glorified, and vilified. We pursued a vision, challenged the status quo, received praise, above all, we kept to our principles and make good things happen.
As we start year 5, Nooku will slowly leave its Joomla roots behind and wander off into the wider PHP galaxy.
Let’s face it, Joomla is moving ahead, but progresses slowly. We love Joomla and we want it to thrive. We believed that Nooku could make this happen and so did some of you, but the time has come to move on.
In 2013, and with the release of 13.1, the Nooku Platform will run fully standalone. A release we are very much looking forward to. The PHP community is innovating at a fast pace and we want to be at the forefront, helping to evolve the web and continuously growing Nooku as a free and open source web application platform.
We recognize that for some, change is difficult. But this is technology! It’s the fastest game in the world! As a long time Joomla community member and Nooku Rock Star, Torkil Johnsen said:
“You have to chase and embrace innovation to stay in the game, not demand that it comes over to shine your shoes.”
