Joomla! 4.2.1 RC2 - Ready for Testing

Post by pe7er » Sun Aug 21, 2022 7:21 pm

The Production Team has a Release Candidate for Joomla 4.2.1 RC2 that is ready for testing. The more people that test in different environments, the better the release can be next week: Tuesday 30 August 2022.
(sorry, it wasn't ready on the previously announced date, 23 August 2022).

DO NOT TEST ON A LIVE/PRODUCTION SITE but rather on a copy of a production site with the owners permission.

Directions on how to test and what to test can be found at
See the list of bugs addressed by this release: ... 5?closed=1
Download packages: ... /4.2.1-rc2

Specific tests Production would like: Again, DO NOT TEST ON A LIVE/PRODUCTION SITE! Rather, test on a copy of a website that you have permission to use.

Thank you for helping Production test this next release of Joomla.
