We expect this to be the last beta of Joomla 4 and to have a Release Candidate available in March. We will also make a new portal available for translation teams to submit Joomla 4 language packs to coincide with the first Release Candidate.
We invite you 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.
Do you want to try Joomla 4.0 Beta without migrating one of your sites? Test it directly at launch.joomla.org
What is the difference between Beta 6 and Beta 7?
Joomla 4 Beta 7 contains:
- An upgrade from Bootstrap 4 to Bootstrap 5 in response to the community initiated discussions on GitHub.
We invite you to test this version and will be very grateful to receive all feedback you can provide, in addition to reporting issues and bugs in the Joomla CMS Issue Tracker.
In order to update from Joomla 4.x to any newer release please make sure you configure your Joomla Update Components Options to point to the Update Channel “Testing” and set the Minimum Stability to “Beta” this setting also now supports updates between pre-releases.
For a complete list of known backward compatibility issues for version 4.0, please see Potential backward compatibility issues in Joomla 4.0 in the documentation site.
