Let’s celebrate! Today is an important day for the Joomla! Project. We’re celebrating our 16th birthday. But that’s not all… After 9 years of hard work by our volunteers, we are proud to announce the release of our new major version, Joomla 4.0, alongside Joomla 3.10, known as “the bridge”.
What is Joomla 4?
Joomla 4 is a major version. Meaning we’re bringing plenty of new features. Everything has been redesigned, rethought and of course, we added great new features.
Most importantly, Joomla 4.0 is built for you, designed for all! Joomla4All!
To build new sites with, to migrate from Joomla RC to Joomla stable and also from the Joomla 3.10 series as well as from Joomla 2.5 series.
Whether an individual, blogger, charity, web agency or multinational, Joomla is a great choice!
Where can I download Joomla 4?
On the Downloads site, of course :)
How can I upgrade my site to Joomla 4?
And then, you just have to follow our step by step tutorials. You can find them on our official documentation at https://docs.joomla.org/Why_Migrate. Planning is the most important part of the mini-migration process. See https://docs.joomla.org/Planning_for_Mini-Migration_-_Joomla_3.10.x_to_4.x to start with. At the bottom of that doc, you can then proceed to the step by step for mini-migration from 3.10 to 4.x. and specifically start with planning at (you’ll find plenty of information and tutorial about Joomla 4 on JDocs).
Note: we advise you to first test the migration on a copy of your production site.
You may also wonder if you have to migrate ASAP? You can take your time, we’ll support 3.10 for 2 more years. So your site is not at risk if you don’t upgrade now. And don’t forget that some of your extensions may not be yet ready for Joomla 4 (even though most developers have done a great job offering a Joomla 4 test version for a while - you can read articles about these extensions on the Joomla Community Magazine)
Joomla 4 is out, make some noise!
Use the hashtag #Joomla4 and #Joomla4All, share the Joomla 4 video, send the Joomla 4 brochure to your clients or add it to your pro site (you can find it at https://joom.la/J4brochure).
