I did not dare to install Joomla 5 because I got the warning that there might be a problem with Gantry 5 …

The devs at Rockettheme are testing the latest Gantry now and should release it soon. It should support J5.

Gantry 5.5.17 is due in the next few weeks. I have tried the nightly build and it is running with J5 without issue on my test sites.

Yes, I have tried it. No problems with the template Hydrogen so far. Some other issues though. :)

i just tried it on a test website - seems to work fine after the upgrade.

FWIW JoomlaShack OSMap and Route 66 free extensions were flagged with potential issues but seem to work fine after upgrading.

Watch out for Font Awesome issues. J5 uses FA6 and Gantry is not moving from FA5 until the next version. Some icons will be missing.

I have tried Helium, it works fine in general with Joomla 5, but the font awesome icon library version in gantry 5 is out of date, then some icons are not compatible with the last version of Joomla.
