The focus has been the preparation for the first Beta, the development version of which can be downloaded from Nightly Builds, as Beta 1 Development - Full.

I saw the Alpha 12 is from october 2019? i thought there was a more recent one available.
So how come there is no newer alpha?
Well alpha 13 actually has a file name of beta dev 1

Don’t let this name fool you: it’s still alpha (after about 4 years)

Yeah. Looks like we will only be getting security updates of Joomla or a substandard new release :'(

There have been lots of "nightly builds" since then!

Anyway, J4 Beta is now available for testing :D

Try your own search trend analysis (for example, searches relating to J! 4 compared with, say, J! 3 and J! 2.5 over the last four months). ;)
Well, that would not give much search hits I’m afraid
