Plans for Joomla 4

  • As a consequence of the required changes of Joomla 4, the internal reorganization in the current Joomla 3.8 release is causing issues on extensions that rely on class names like JUser, JMail, JUri, etc. For more information about Joomla 4 and Potential backward compatibility issues.
  • JED has now the checkbox for J4 compatibility, and a new menu "Compatible with J4 Alpha" has been published to feature J4 extensions.
