Where can I download Joomla 4.1.5 and the latest update of Joomla 3.10 series, Joomla 3.10.10?
On the Downloads site, of course :)
Should I use Joomla 3.10 for new installations?
Joomla! 3.10 is slowly moving towards End of Support (EOS). There is less than half a year left for bug fixes. After that, one year for security fixes until 17th August 2023. Joomla! 4.x, the new major version of Joomla has already been available for almost a year and offers many improvements. In addition, you benefit from the latest production versions of PHP, which bring security and performance boosts to your site too.
So, although you could still start new projects with Joomla! 3.10 we highly recommend using Joomla! 4 for new projects.
Remember… Please clear your browser's cache after updating.

How can I upgrade my site to Joomla 4.1.5?
If your site is a Joomla 4.0.x installation
Then it’s a normal update, backup and update as you would with any Joomla update via the internal updater.
If your site is a Joomla 3.x installation
Don’t stress, you’re not alone, we are guiding you for the mini-migration.
The first step will be to update your site to the latest Joomla 3.10. We invite you to read Joomla 3.10 The Pre-update Checker. The 3.10 update checker will tell you which extensions are compatible with Joomla 4 (great, isn’t it?).
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.x 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 now? Ideally, you would start the planning of the migration now so that you can migrate once your template and extensions are ready. Use this as an opportunity to remove old and outdated extensions. More can be done with the core, safely and efficiently, so if an extension has not been migrated, see if you really need it..
Remember that Joomla 3.10 is only supported for one more year. If you have not already started, you should be planning your migration. Don't leave it too late, as 3.10 ends its support in August 2023.
You can read articles about the process of mini migration and Joomla 4.1 in the Joomla Community Magazine.

Joomla’s power comes from its ever-evolving code base, keeping up with best practices, but also from its large ecosystem of developers who see opportunities in the market and fill those gaps with good software designed to meet real-world needs.

All this and Joomla 4 is free to use and open-source software.

How can you help Joomla development?
There are a variety of ways in which you can get actively involved with Joomla. It doesn't matter if you are a coder, an integrator, or a user of Joomla. You can contact any of our volunteer engagement team to get more information, or if you are ready you can jump right into the Joomla! Bug Squad.
The Joomla! Bug Squad and the CMS Release Team are some of the most active teams in the CMS development process and are always looking for people (not just developers) that can help with sorting bug reports, coding patches and testing solutions. A great way for increasing your working knowledge of the Joomla code base, and also a great way to meet new people from all around the world.
You can also help Joomla development by thanking those involved in the many areas of the process. The Project also wants to thank all the contributors who have taken the time to prepare and submit work to be included in the Joomla CMS and Framework.
A Huge Thank You to Our Volunteers!
Joomla is the result of thousands of hours of work by lots of volunteers.
A big thank you goes out to everyone that contributed to the 4.1 & 3.10 release!
