Mindanao Open Source Society (MOSS) is a non-profit organization promoting free and open source software in Mindanao, Philippines. It is a team composed of volunteers from different regions in Mindanao, developing and sharing their talents and skills to uphold the goals of the organization.

Seal:

Since MOSS uses Linux, it has adopted the idea of using a penguin
(top head view ) as the emblem because the organization supports open source.
The penguin's beak with three strong colors forms a vinta which represents the
regions of Mindanao. The vinta with its crystalyzed form shows genuinity, power
and simplicity with style; with this imagery presented, the MOSS emblem was
born.

Yesterday, The Joomla announce the release of Joomla! 1.5 RC3 [codename: Takriban] is now available for download. We've had the 'Red Barchetta' release candidate, then Endelo RC (meaning development, progress ... improvement). Takriban means 'almost, nearly'. Well folks we're almost, nearly there. Stable is getting very close.

It's roughly 10 weeks since RC1 and five weeks since RC2 and thanks to valuable community feedback, there have been improvements and bug fixes. The uptake of Joomla! 1.5 has been incredible, with many people diving in to the new API and finding ways to make it sing. The current Joomla! 1.5 template competition has further fuelled interest, as has the number of 1.5 native extensions finding their way onto the Joomla! Extensions Directory . Joomla! 1.5 is really gaining momentum.
