Joomla 3.5 BETA 1 Released

Post by pe7er » Sat Nov 07, 2015 2:04 am

The Joomla! Project is pleased to announce the availability of Joomla! 3.5 Beta 1 . Community members are asked to download and install the package in order to provide quality assurance for the forthcoming 3.5 release.

Joomla! 3 is the latest major release of the Joomla! CMS, with 3.5 the sixth standard-term support release in this series. Please note that going from 3.4 to 3.5 is a one-click upgrade and is NOT a migration. The same is true is for any subsequent versions in the 3 series of the CMS. That being said, please do not upgrade any of your production sites to the beta version as beta is ONLY intended for testing and there is no upgrade path from Beta.

What is this release for?
This is a BETA release, that should only be used on test sites. Beta releases cannot be upgraded.
Extension developers are encouraged to work with this release in order to prepare extensions for the stable release of Joomla! CMS 3.5, though there shouldn't be any backward compatibility issues. Users are encouraged to test the package for issues and to report issues in the Joomla! CMS Issue Tracker. Please do not upgrade any of your production sites to the beta version and do not start a new site on beta as beta is ONLY intended for testing and there is no upgrade path from Beta.
Download: https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/re ... ackage.zip

When is the stable release due?

We have revised the launch timeline slightly to ensure we can get everything up to the quality levels we all would like, and to ensure thorough testing on as many hosting environments as possible.
The schedule is now as follows:
  • 17 November beta 2
  • 1 December - Release Candidate
  • 8 December – 3.5 Stable
Please note that dates may be subject to change depending on availability of volunteers and circumstances beyond our control.

The links provided points to an Update Package - Not the Full Package. So, the users cannot download and install the package referenced. The file name for the full package is Joomla_3.5.0-beta-Beta-Full_Package.zip.

The URL to/of the Joomla! 3.5 Beta 1 full package is https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/re ... ackage.zip.
