Hi,

Does anybody knows why the administration of Joomla 4 uses FontAwesome 4.7.0 and not the latest one which currently is 5.8?

Hi, maybe this question will be better to ask directly on Github as an issue, so core developers can reflect it:

I found, after your recommendation, that there is already an issue in Github.
The link is https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/issues/20099.
