Find out more about these releases over on GitHub:

Download these upcoming releases from the nightly build page (for testing purposes only - do not use on production sites).
Want an even easier option? Get yourself over to launch.joomla.org - where you can test Joomla 4.0 with just one click - no testing environment needed, nothing to install or set up (at all).

Join the Joomla Force

From eagle-eyed testers to talented translators, Joomla grows and evolves only because of our valiant teams of volunteers.

Here’s how you can help…

  • Become a tester - No special skills needed – but you will need to be able to install test releases and follow reporting instructions
  • Help us translate - Speak English and another language? Help us talk to the world!
  • Document new features - Consider yourself a natural teacher? These roles are for those who can write tutorials and technical documentation
  • Joomla 3.9 Help Screens - Any user can help to update and/or translating the Help Screens – these are all accessible from the Joomla backend
  • Other areas - There are plenty of other volunteer spots - find one that fits with your skills and interests

There’s a lot going on at the Joomla Project. Keep up with us by subscribing to the Joomla Newsletter - and if you’re a dev, remember to sign up for our Developer Newsletter too.
