Start contributing to Joomla! 4

Joomla! 3.7 is still in development but we’re already thinking forward and gathering contributors to work on Joomla! 4.

This will be an evolution of the Joomla! series with the goal of improving both user experience and code quality.

Joomla! 4 will not be a massive ground up refactor of the code base. The intention is to give Joomla! large functionality improvements with limited backward compatibility breaks.

Joomla! Needs You!

Are you a developer or designer who would like to contribute to a CMS that powers over 3% of the web? Maybe your interest is in accessibility or usability instead? We need you too.

  • You can make a difference!
    This is your opportunity to make a difference in the future of Joomla! Imagine the feeling knowing that millions of people across the world are using software that you contributed towards.
  • You can have an impact!
    Step back for a moment and think about how great it would feel to play a role in creating something truly special. Something with the potential to change the way we use the web and build web sites in the future - that something can be Joomla! 4, be a part of it!
  • Now is the time
    To achieve our goals we need to start now. With Joomla! 4, we’re aiming to have an alpha (and maybe a beta) ready for presentation at the end of May 2017 at J And Beyond.

We’d like to remind you not to panic about any existing sites! We are committed to Joomla’s development strategy. We will continue to support Joomla! 3 for 2 years after the last minor version of Joomla! is released (currently this is planned to be Joomla! 3.7).
