The Joomla Community Magazine
Many things happened in the Joomla sphere from the previous issue of the Magazine.
The major news is that Joomla 4 Beta 1 has been finally released! Kudos to the Release Leader, the developers and every single contributor, either with code or tests, that worked on this amazing step forward in the new major version development process.
When our team kicked off organizing an international Joomla conference in May 2020, we had no idea that a global pandemic would ruin all our plans. However, as a community born in the online world, nothing seemed more obvious than turning our beloved family meeting into an online event, bringing people from around the globe together in these crazy times.
Contributing to the Joomla project is much easier when you’ve got a local testing environment. This month we’ve prepared a tutorial on how to go about configuring a local testing environment.

Over a decade ago, a developer volunteering in the Joomla! Security Forum launched a suite of tools (Joomla Tools Suite) to help Joomlers diagnose issues with hosting, the installation and other matters associated with Joomla! Part of this suite was what is now known as the Forum Post Assistant or FPA.
