Joomla CMS Repository on GitHub

In preparation for the upcoming 3.9 and 3.10 releases, we’ve updated our repository on GitHub to allow work to continue on our future releases.

Joomla 4.0 Alpha 3

The Joomla Project is pleased to announce the availability of Joomla 4.0 Alpha 3 for testing.

Joomla 3.9

As previously announced here, the Joomla Project is working on a GDPR oriented release including tools to help you with the privacy of your websites.

Joomla Gmail Authentication Plugin

Since version 1.5, the Joomla CMS contains a Gmail authentication plugin. Its main purpose was to illustrate how you can build a Joomla authentication plugin for an external service with a ‘real world’ example. The web has changed dramatically since then, but not this plugin. The technique the plugin is using is not anymore state of the art and less secure.

Joomla Compatibility Layer

With the release of Joomla 3.8 a first compatibility layer for Joomla 4 was released. What does this layer contain? Why is such a layer needed? Questions like this will be answered in this post.
