Speed, security, compatibility, performance. These are just four of the reasons you should keep your PHP version up to date. In this 2020 revision on the topic, we cover a number of ways you can go about updating your PHP version to avoid problems in the lead up to the release of Joomla 4 which has a minimum requirement of PHP version 7.3 or above.
While the development of the new major version of Joomla, the 2nd most used CMS worldwide, is in progress, the Joomla Community Magazine is continuing interviewing Joomla extensions developers to understand their own path towards Joomla 4. This month we had the chance to interview Marco Biagioni, the man behind J! Extensions Store, a renowned brand in the Joomla sphere, with its flagship JSitemap Pro extension.
On the way to the stable version of Joomla 4, we also wanted to know how the template developers are working to adapt their products to the next major version of our CMS.
Joomla 4 Beta 2 was released at the end of June, taking a further step towards the stable version. It also means that Joomla users are starting to test Joomla 4 and wonder what the migration from Joomla 3 will be like and what will happen to the extensions they currently have installed on their sites.
Joomla 4 Beta was launched at the end of May, starting a period of testing, especially by extension developers, who in general will begin to adapt their products to this new major version.
On this occasion, we talked to Nicholas Dionysopoulos to get his impressions on getting extensions ready for Joomla 4.
The release of Joomla 4 Beta is getting closer. Reaching this milestone is a crucial moment in the development roadmap of a product, and it means that the stable version is almost there. However, there is still plenty of work to do.
Joomla 4 is getting closer with the Beta version expected for the end of this month, but, at the same time, Joomla's contributors are working hard to develop another important release: Joomla 3.10.
