Joomla! 3.0 Alpha-2 Released (for testing only!)

Post by pe7er » Tue Aug 28, 2012 2:56 pm

The Joomla Project is pleased to announce the availability of Joomla 3.0 Alpha 2 for download.

NOTE: This Alpha version is for testing purposes only! Do NOT use at a production/live site!
This Alpha 2 version is a test version, not a stable version.
Your Joomla 3.0 Alpha 2 site could break, possibly creating irreparable damage.
There won't be any update paths from an Alpha to any subsequent release...

So, what is this release for?
The main goal for this release is to allow advance testing of the new admin and site templates based on the Bootstrap framework. This release also includes most of the platform changes that will be included with version 3.0.0. Some of these changes will require small changes to extensions. For a complete list of known backward compatibility issues for version 3.0 see Potential backward compatibility issues in Joomla 3.0 and Joomla Platform 12.1 in the documentation site.

For known issues with the 3.0 alpha-2 release, see the version 3.0 Alpha-2 FAQ in the documentation site.

So now that you know that it's for testing purposes only,
you could download Joomla 3.0 Alpha 2 for testing it at a local PC (e.g. using XAMPP)
