Joomla 3.8.12 is now available. This is a security release for the 3.x series of Joomla which addresses 3 security vulnerabilities and contains over 20 bug fixes and improvements.
Joomla 4.0 is on the horizon, but over 200 bugs and feature requests are untested, which means, they cannot go into the Joomla core. As a main rule, new functions for Joomla have to be tested before they can be merged into an official release. Usually it takes only a few minutes and Joomla becomes better and better.
The Joomla Project and CloudAccess.net are equally excited to announce the launch of launch.joomla.org, the brand new platform to launch a free Joomla website and test upcoming releases to support the project by helping make our CMS the best it can be!
