The fourth beta of Joomla 4.0 has just been released, and the second alpha of Joomla 3.10. This new version is supposed to be even better than the previous versions of Joomla. There are lots of changes that have been made since the initial release of Joomla. Let’s take a look at what we can expect from this latest release.
The important improvements made in the previous versions of Joomla are not new anymore. They have been improved with this latest version. One of these vital improvements is the support for the upgraded Open Directory Project (ODP) catalogs. With the help of ODP catalogs, the search engine robots can easily find and index your website pages faster.
Another important improvement is the enhanced compatibility with the popular content management system (CMS) systems. This is achieved by the implementation of the built-in update channel feature introduced in the previous Joomla 4 beta 4 version. With this latest update component, you will be able to upgrade your existing catalogs to the latest version. Now users can also share and publish their own websites without waiting for the upload of the catalogs. This is an advantage taken by most users.
This Joomla update component is made with great care and diligence. It has been designed to work as smoothly as possible with the minimum stability and reliability. It is very useful for those who use CMS systems on a regular basis and for those who want to have a quick access to the latest information about the software. This new version of Joomla is also very lightweight, fast and secure.
The next step in the Joomla development process was the implementation of the first beta version of Joomla 4. There are several significant improvements, which were brought forth in this beta version. One of these is the major change in the interface of Joomla. The second alpha version included several significant changes like faster startup time and improved performance. In the third beta version, several major improvements were introduced including the option to disable unwanted icons, password protection for the main password area, improved file handling, improved file uploading and many more.
The fourth Joomla release, the first pre-update checker, is another significant addition with this release. This checker enables users to determine whether there are known compatibility issues with their operating systems before downloading Joomla 4. The checker enables users to update the Joomla installation to the latest available versions of Joomla and other open source applications such as Drupal and WordPress using the pre-update checker. In addition, the update component of Joomla 4 will also make it easier for Joomla users to update the plug-ins, language files and other settings of Joomla.
With the introduction of the fourth pre-release, there are several important issues which have been resolved. Among the most prominent of these issues is the compatibility issue with Microsoft Windows operating system, which was caused due to the introduction of a new platform on Windows platform. While the developers took all possible measures to overcome the problem but were unable to solve the issue completely.
However, there is still another important issue related to the compatibility of Joomla with Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel. The developers made it simple for users to create documents using these two popular applications by adding the ‘excel support’ component to Joomla. The developers have also added several advanced features to Joomla 4 beta 4, which are being used by many users and developers worldwide, including better themes and skins, improved templates support, better default formatting options, easier application shortcuts, better font selection tools and many more.
