Anybody with basic word processing skills can easily learn to manage a Joomla! site.  Best of all Joomla! is opens source and freely available to everyone.

New Features of Joomla! 1.6 include:

Nested Categories – No More Section/Category/Article forced hierarchy.
Granular ACL System – Set specific access permissions based on a user’s group to components, menu items, and much more.
Tableless Core Components – Not talked about as widely, but still just as wonderful is the move to make most/all core components use tableless layouts (when tables shouldn’t be used, that is).  This is great for design, SEO, and general scalability going forward.
