Hi 👋! My name is Ben Morss. I’m a Developer Advocate at Google, where my job is to help make it easier to make websites that are excellent for everyone. I also used to be a "serious" musician, so you can still find me recording songs in the attic that's now my workspace. And laboring on my opera that's sort of about Steve Jobs.
The Joomla Community Magazine
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.
Since the beginning, in Joomla, we have worked to make the web accessible to everyone because as we claim in our Accessibility Statement: Inclusion is in our heart.
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.
