Joomla 4.0 Alpha 12 is Out

Joomla team has announced the availability of Joomla 4.0 Alpha 12. Now, you can install it to test the extensions compatibility as well as explore the new features in Joomla 4.

Joomla 4.0 Alpha 12 is Out

Joomla 4 Alpha 12 includes most of the Joomla Core library changes that will be included with version 4.0.0. Some of these changes will require small changes to extensions.
