There is always a great deal of Joomla! development activity underway and communicating with other developers in the community is essential. This site is a resource for anyone looking to build or maintain software based on the Joomla! platform.
Where to Start
Joomla! 3.8 has introduced a brand new routing system. This feature which vastly improves Joomla’s out of the box SEO capabilities, and has been long awaited by users.
In order to understand this feature in greater detail and its implications on existing and new websites as well as 3rd party extensions, the Marketing Team spoke to Hannes Papenberg - the lead developer of this feature.
The Joomla! Project would like to share some changes we implemented recently in our GitHub organisation, as well as forthcoming changes that will be implemented in the near future.
Over the last year, a lot of effort has gone into building the next generation of Joomla in working on the Joomla! 4.0 and Joomla! Framework 2.0 releases. In addition to introducing several new features, including a fully rebuilt Media Manager, an enhanced event dispatching system, and new security features such as support for prepared SQL statements, we have also been doing some routine maintenance and paying off some of our project's technical debt by retiring deprecated code and raising the minimum supported software stack. In an update from last year's manifesto, today we would like to announce that the next major Joomla releases will require PHP 7.
