Earlier this week, Joomla 1.5.8 was released and it received the codename Wohnaiki. Ever wondered what these codenames mean? Well, it simply means "eight" in a Native American Language called Yaqui. It started with 1.5.0 which was named after an ancient Egyptian god called Khepri. After this, the joomla team started counting in the Yaqui language: from Seenu (one) to the new Wohnaiki. I wonder what the release 1.5.9 will be named. I'd put my money on vatani (yes that means "nine").
I really like these code names. There's something mysterious about them. Joomla 1.0.x had names like sunshine, sunshade or sunscreen. That's...well...just a bit boring. Even in codenames, joomla 1.5.x is way better then 1.0.x.
