Joomla 4 Is On The Horizon

What’s new in Joomla 4?

We are firmly committed to making the next generation of Joomla the best. Joomla 4 will provide simplicity and a better user experience while also being a more powerful system for developers.

Here is a short list of Joomla 4 key features and benefits we intend to implement:

  • Install Joomla in the blink of an eye. An easier, faster and more user friendly install process
  • Brand new User Interfaces (backend and frontend) to provide a new and improved experience
  • The web is for all. We aim to ensure that the templates are accessible (Level AA of WCAG 2.1)
  • A fully rebuilt Media Manager with a cleaner User Interface and new image editing capabilities
  • A new Publishing Workflow to manage your articles in an advanced and customisable way
  • Web Services to allow you to make your content accessible to other websites and for easy mobile app creation
  • New security features such as support for prepared SQL statements
  • HTML Mail Templates to allow easy customisation of the emails your site sends
  • An improved and expanded Command Line Interface (CLI)
  • A cleaner and more powerful codebase. With the removal of deprecated functions from Joomla 3.x and the use of PHP namespaces that allows developers to deliver more robust and innovative applications than ever before
  • The power of the Joomla Framework merged into the CMS
  • An enhanced event dispatching system
  • And much more!

Keeping Your Joomla Website Up to Date

Keeping Your Joomla Website Up to Date

As of release 3.5 Joomla is collecting stats data, thanks to the stats plugin (only works if it’s enabled), and it found too many websites are not using the currently supported release of 3.9.2. This data is based on the Joomla, PHP, and database version. These are some pretty alarming statistics, and should not be ignored! We have provided some links at the bottom of this article for your reference, review, and to even get the latest release of Joomla.

Updating your website allows you to get the benefits from the latest features, along with the bug fixes. New features are implemented in minor and major releases and can help you with many aspects of your website, such as the look and feel of it. The latest bug fixes are one of the biggest reasons to update your website. We work on getting any bugs in the code corrected as soon as possible, and with each new release, there are new bugs that have been squashed.

Joomla 3.9 Beta 4 Released for Testing

Joomla 3.9 Beta 4 Released for Testing

The Joomla Project is pleased to announce the availability of the fourth Joomla 3.9 Beta release. Community members and extension developers are asked to download and install the package in order to provide quality assurance for the forthcoming 3.9 release.

Joomla 3 is the latest major version of the Joomla CMS, with 3.9 being the tenth minor release in this series.

Please note that going from 3.8 to 3.9 is a one-click upgrade and is NOT a migration. The same is true for any subsequent versions in the 3 series of the CMS. That being said, please do not upgrade any of your production sites to the beta version as this beta is ONLY intended for testing and there is no upgrade path from beta.
