In keeping with their published timeline for software development, the Joomla development team is abut to release the latest version of the popular content management system software. Joomla, which holds a second place market share to WordPress, is a CMS geared towards website developers and designers who have plans to take a site beyond a simple blog site. Joomla is a robust and mature software that has an ever growing user base of loyal fans. With this latest upgrade, the Joomla team continues their efforts to make the software a leading content management solution for the web.
A Very Compatible Upgrade
The good news for most existing Joomla users is that the latest upgrade of the software is slated to be a "One Click Upgrade" from Joomla 3.4. That means existing installations won't have to go through a lengthy and complicated process to update their sites. In our testing at Empro, we have experienced no trouble at all using the typical plug-ins and components with the Joomla 3.5 beta releases. We have tested JCE, Aimy Sitemap, sh404, and Akeeba Backup with no difficulties whatsoever. That's going to be a relief for developers and users alike.
Check The Joomla Site For Changes
Compatibility has been a core issue with the Joomla team. They have made it a primary goal to make transitions between versions as seamless as possible. However, occasionally the issues cannot be avoided and straight compatibility cannot be assured. The success with the tools mentioned above is no guarantee that other plug-ins components and modules add-ons will work with Joomla 3.5. Users are advised to check Joomla release notes before deploying the new software on their production websites.
