Joomla Framework

Since its initial stable release in December 2013, the Joomla Framework has steadily grown to better suit the needs of the Joomla ecosystem, providing the backbone of Joomla installations worldwide. The work that has been done on this small portion of the Joomla codebase has been extraordinary and lays the framework for an even more powerful Joomla 4.0 release. Today we would like to share an update on the state of the Joomla Framework and our intentions for it moving forward.

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.
