Prepare for the next Major Release, Joomla 4

Joomla is certainly moving forward at a fast pace, preparing for its next big release, Joomla 4. If you are curious to see how Joomla 4 is evolving, CMS changes, and what to expect with Joomla 4, then keep reading.

Beginning with Joomla! 4.0 the minimum server requirements will be raised. Be sure to check with your hosting provider that your site can support Joomla 4

The minimum requirements are the following:

  • PHP 7.0
  • MySQL 5.5.3
  • PostgreSQL 9.2
  • MS SQL will not be supported
  • MySQL using the legacy `ext/mysql` PHP extension will not be supported, MySQLi or PDO MySQL must be used instead

The journey towards Joomla 4 has started from the release of Joomla 3.8. The stage will be set in the release of 3.9. Both of these major updates have some significant features and improvements to soften the transition to Joomla 4.

Proposed Schedule

4.0.0 Alpha 2 19 November 2017
