Joomla is one of the biggest names in the world of CMS, and they've just rolled out version 3.5, along with 34 new features.
Some of those 34 new features include support for the recently released PHP 7 scripting language (PHP is one of the the most popular programming languages for web applications), which in turn, should significantly increase web site speed.
So in other words, Joomla should now be a lot faster out of the box.
The big news here is Joomla's PHP 7 support. It will bring significant performance improvements to Joomla's general public. But there's more to this update.
For example, a new email update notification plugin checks for available Joomla updates and bug fixes, and then emails the designated administrator to make sure they know what the latest news is.

I for one, like this Joomla update.
Editor buttons becoming more accessible, modules becoming easier to implement, and drag-and-drop image placement, are all features that the modern CMS user would want.
