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.

The Joomla! CMS has a couple of places from which you can download the latest CMS versions. Below is a list of locations where you can find Joomla.

Joomla! Downloads Portal

If you would like to download the files already built into an easy zip file format you can download them directly from On this portal, you’ll find the most recent release of the Current stable version and all the Legacy versions. If you wish to browse specific packages, including every release since 1.0, you can do so by visiting the Downloads section.

GitHub Repository

Alternatively if you are interested in looking at the files before you download or would rather review and download direct you can do so from the Joomla! GitHub repository. In the repository you can use the tags feature to select the version of the code you wish to download.
