Joomla 1.5 database schema, bigJoomla 1.5 beta is just around the corner now. Jinx has earlier stated that it would be released before may but we are yet to see if the core devs manage to keep their promise.

Download Joomla 1.5 database diagram (From April 2006. XML-format, for use with FabFORCE DBDesigner4)

The diagram also has column info expanded, so that you can see the column types (varchar, integer, etc). This makes the schema a bit messy, but this is a feature you easily can turn on/off in DBDesigner to make it more readable again.
