Joomla 4

Next Generation Web Tools.

Joomla 4.0

Joomla 4

Joomla 1.0 came 2005 and since then, development has gone steadily. Joomla's strength has always been that they are quick to adopt modern code like Bootstrap and Javascripts library. This also made Joomla require more modern servers and php versions to work well. Other CMS like Wordpress, for example, continue to provide support for outgoing versions of, for example, PHP (like 5.3), which means they have not had to keep up with new technical improvements.

Joomla 4.0 continues on this track and chooses to only support PHP 7.0 +. The PHP 7 series is a very big update to PHP (which is still the heart of all CMS tools) and provides significant improvements in security, 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 4
  • Next version of Joomla Framework: version 2 (the core of Joomla that can be used, for example, for app development).
  • New Modern "Event Dispatcher"
  • JQuery is considered forfeited and will not be part of Joomla's core anymore.
  • New media manager with the ability to edit images.
Joomla 4.0 sets new standards not just 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 4.0. A very modern framework that sets the standard for how nice, useful and modern web tools are to be built around.
