Joomla 4.0

Joomla 4

Joomla 1.0 came from the Mambo project 2005 and since then development has progressed steadily. Joomla's strength has always been that they are quick to embrace modern code such as Bootstrap and Javascripts library. This has also meant that Joomla requires more modern servers and php versions in order to function well. Other CMS, such as Wordpress, have instead continued to provide support for outgoing versions of eg PHP (like 5.3), which meant that they had to not follow new technological improvements.

Joomla 4.0 continues on this path and chooses to only support PHP 7+ and the new PHP 8. The PHP 8 series is a major update to PHP (which is still the heart of these PHP-based open source CMS tools) and provides major improvements around safety, optimization / speed and general new programming principles that make life easier and more efficient for the developer. By following modern technology in this way, all parts of Joomla can be further developed at a faster pace.

Some of the major improvements in Joomla 4.0 are:

  • New design of the management interface with new Bootstrap 5
  • Next version of Joomla Framework: version 2 (the core of Joomla that can be used, for example, for app development).
  • New Modern "Event Dispatcher"
  • CLI (Command Line Interface) commands for advanced integrations
  • "Vanilla Javascript" (pure javascript code) instead of the jQuery library
  • Brand new media manager with the ability to edit images.

Joomla 4.0 sets a new standard not only for itself but for the entire CMS market

One of the great news with Joomla 4 is its new management interface based on Vanilla-JS and Bootstrap 5. A very modern framework that sets the standard for how nice, useful and modern web tools are to be built around.
