Call for Extension and Templates Developers Feedback!

We especially want to extend this call to test and more importantly feedback to all Joomla extension and template developers. Your products contribute to one of Joomla’s key features: its extensibility. This release is the perfect moment to start working on getting extensions and templates ready for the stable version of Joomla 4.0 and 3.10. Your feedback is very crucial for the upcoming releases.

Did you upload the directory and try it out?

No its to early for site owners that doesnt start from scratch and have many extra extensions but this have really speed up development and activities with the Joomla 4 developer community. I did before and JBD didnt work (install problems) with late alpha version.


So its time for all Joomla 3pds to test and update their extension for J 4 compability also. :)


Joomla 4 will be a very good step forward for many technical improvements in Joomla 4 core.

A good Joomla article community magazine



As a developer, is it necessary to start working on the update as soon as possible?

Joomla 4 has now reached sufficient maturity that extension developers should be working on updating their extensions as a matter of urgency. Most of the core functionality is now there and the underlying architecture is no longer changing.


We have found that using the backwards compatibility documentation searching for deprecated function calls, using some sort of a Joomla namespace checker such as Joomla Namespace Checker (JNSC), combined with a side by side functionality check and search/replace in the code works well.


Some of the JavaScript changes have been more difficult to address than the underlying PHP.


Good tutorial too https://www.joomlashack.com/blog/tutorials/joomla-4-guide/






The version for Joomla 4 should be ready next week.

The 5.5.0 version will be compatible with Joomla 4.

Really looking forward to that and I guess that will have good impact on performance on JBD.
