Yes, once again there's a great fanfare about what's happening but little to show for it. Leaving aside the non-emergence of any new releases for testing—except for those "nightly builds" that haven't been properly peer-reviewed—for two months, the emergence of a RC version is dependent on the availability of language translations.Once again the Joomla Project is pleased to announce the availability of the Joomla 4.0 Beta 7 release, and Joomla 3.10 Alpha 5.
We expect this to be the last beta of Joomla 4 and to have a Release Candidate available in March. We will also make a new portal available for translation teams to submit Joomla 4 language packs to coincide with the first Release Candidate.
1. Where is the "new portal" for the translation teams?
The Joomla! Official News article about J! 4 Beta 7 and J! 3.10 Alpha 5 was dated 25 February; this came three weeks after the actual release dates of those versions on 3 February.
We know that the J! 4 and J! 3.10 development teams do not visit this forum and therefore we're left struggling to discover news for ourselves. Certainly, if you're technically-minded, GitHub provides us with some information ... but it makes one wonder what is the purpose of this forum, doesn't it?
From what I've seen at GitHub, the developers aren't using that "forum" either.
2. Where is the place where we can get current information about the state of the Joomla! project?
I used Google to search for the latest information about J!: this was my search query --> https://www.google.com/search?&q=latest ... a!+project
