Joomla! Series, Versions & Patches: what's the difference?

joomla support cheshire manchester merseyside north west ukWe hope this short article helps you understand the significance of the suffix which accompanies the Joomla! CMS used by your website.

For example: Joomla! 4.0.0.


Joomla! Series

A Joomla! Series (example: Joomla! 4) commences with the release of a Major version of the Joomla! CMS.


Joomla! Versions

There are three types of version: Major, Minor and Patch.

What happens after the launch of a new Series?

The Joomla! Project commit to providing security support for the previous version of Joomla! CMS for a period of time after the launch of a new Series.

For example, Joomla! 3.10 (the last minor release of the Joomla! 3 Series) will be supported by The Joomla! Project for a period of TWO years following the launch of the Joomla! 4 Series.

The Joomla! 4 Series was launched on 17 August 2021.
