Joomla News: Joomla 4 Beta 6 and Joomla 3.10 Alpha 4 Release

Joomla 4 Beta 6 and Joomla 3.10 Alpha 4 are available. You're welcome to download, install and test the package to improve quality assurance for the forthcoming 4.0 release and to discover the new features introduced in this major release.

 

Highlight Differences between Beta 6 and Beta 5

  • One backwards compatibility break to note - to implement tags you now need to have your Table classes implement the \Joomla\CMS\Tag\TaggableTableInterface. This was to fix issues between the refactored tags plugins and batch actions. This is similar to the interface we had already created for Versions. An empty interface and trait have been ported back into Joomla 3.10 in order to help migrations
  • Major improvements to the Cassiopeia frontend template
  • Updates from the 3.x branch to be inline with 3.9.24 Release Candidate 2
  • All mails sent by Joomla now use the mail templates feature
  • Fixes to session data when upgrading from Joomla 3.10 to Joomla 4 (you won’t have to log in again on update now!)


Remember that BETA release should only be used on test sites. Do not use it for your live site.

Joomla 3.10 Alpha 4

Along with Joomla 4 Beta 6, the 4th alpha version of Joomla 3.10 also is carried out.

Joomla 3.10 is the bridge between Joomla 4 and Joomla 3.x. Joomla 3.10 stable will primarily be a release containing backports of API changes from the Joomla 4 development branch to help ease the transition to the next major release for the community. Joomla 3.10 will be supported for 2 years after it has been finally released. A new feature is introduced in Joomla 3.10 is the Joomla Update component to help you with your mini-migration process: the Pre-Update Checker.

Once your website is updated to 3.10, the pre-update checker will allow you to check the compatibility with the Joomla 4.0 minimum requirements in terms of the current hosting environment and, more importantly, your installed extensions. This will help you migrate to Joomla 4.0 smoothly.

Joomla 4 is on the go with Beta release. We will update all our Joomla templates, Joomla extensions to Joomla 4 as soon as the stable release.
