The Joomla! Project has announced the roadmap for the development of the next minor version of its content management system or CMS: Joomla! 5.1.

A minor version is released when new features are added but backward compatibility is not broken.

The stable release for use with production websites is scheduled for: 16 April 2024.

Before then there will be a series of Alpha, Beta and Release Candidate releases to provide an opportunity for users to contribute to the development process beginning with Alpha releases.
