It would be nice for future version to incorporate Joomla which is very useful, a forum application (like this forum or for e.g Simple Machines forum) and a collaboration suite application.

By the way, is there a way for me to add Joomla, forum or a particular collaboration suite by myself in Slack Mini Server?

Thanks.

I have thought that, in the past but it's quite simple to install either joomla or phpBB or any other forum application.

A simple guide is login to your server remotely or locally and download the packages to you root directory for instance.
http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/phpbb/phpBB-3.0.2.tar.bz2
http://joomlacode.org/gf/download/frsrelease/8376/30993/Joomla_1.5.7-Stable-Full_Package.zip

and navigate to your web root /var/www/htdocs
cd /var/www/htdocs/
tar xvjf /root/phpBB-3.0.2.tar.bz2

I usually create a symlink to forum with
ln -s phpBB3/ forum
open your browser at http://sms/forum and follow the instructions.
there are 3 thing you need to do manual.

make config.php writable with
chmod 777 forum/config.php

create the database and user for it with
mysql
mysql> create database forum;
mysql> grant all on forum.* to user@localhost identified by 'password';

Fill the required info on empty fields and your forum it's ready in 5 minutes.

As for joomla, while you are at /var/www/htdocs do
mkdir joomla
cd joomla
unzip /root/Joomla_1.5.7-Stable-Full_Package.zip

Create the database and user for joomla as above.
Navigate at http://sms/joomla and continue the installation.
You probably might need to save your configuration.php at the end, and place it manually at /var/www/htdocs/joomla.

As you an see it's quite easy to install forums or CRM applications.
