Joomla 4 is getting closer with the Beta version expected for the end of this month, but, at the same time, Joomla's contributors are working hard to develop another important release: Joomla 3.10.
Joomla 3.10 has been announced as the "Bridge version", a release that has several purposes: being the final milestone of the Joomla 3.x series and act as the intermediate version for those websites that will migrate to the 4.x series. The major feature of Joomla 3.10 will be the so-called "Update Checker", a suite of controls and verifications to test the compatibility of the website with the Joomla 4.x series, in order to properly plan and deal with the migration to the new major version of the CMS.
Given the importance of these intermediate steps, in the preparation for the migration to Joomla 4, we decided to ask some questions about Joomla 3.10 to its Release Leader: Tobias Zulauf, a long-term Joomla contributor and developer.
First of all, thanks Tobias for your time answering our questions.
What is the main objective of Joomla 3.10?
The main objective for Joomla 3.10 is that it is the last minor release of 3.x, a dedicated compatibility release and the starting point for any Joomla 3 to Joomla 4 upgrade.
