Joomla 4.1.0 Stable Released

Joomla 4.1.0 Stable Released

The Joomla! Project is thrilled to announce the features-packed and timely release of Joomla 4.1.

This release sets new standards in accessible web design and brings exciting new features, highlighting Joomla's values of inclusiveness, simplicity and security into an even more powerful open-source web platform.

With Joomla 4.1, we have new features for bloggers and authors, web designers and extension developers, web agencies or multinationals. The highlights being:

Tasks Scheduler

Do you have tasks you do time and time again? Or tasks for the future which you must not forget to do? Now you can automate them with the new Task Scheduler.

Joomla extensions will be able to take advantage of the new feature, giving you the power to time work and run it on a regular basis. Even if your website host does not allow cron jobs, we have got you covered by letting your visitor trigger the execution in the background.

And, of course, developers will be able to take advantage of the core scheduler to automate their extensions, taking their applications to a new level of productivity.

The new Task Scheduler comes in addition to the existing Workflows Manager and Web Services introduced in Joomla 4.0. This unique combination adds a tremendous potential to Joomla as a Web applications and automation framework.

Taking overrides onto the next level with Child Templates.

With child templates, you can create different instances of a template with one click, changing only the lines of code you need to, it is simple and effective. In the past, personalising template parts for specific pages involved several technical steps, which are now integrated.

A child template works exactly the same as any other template except that it uses all the code, PHP, CSS and JavaScript of its parent template.

At its most basic level, it only contains a single file, templateDetails.xml, as everything else is inherited from the parent.

Now with a child template, you can customise an override or CSS and keep the parent template as clean as the day your template provider supplied it. This also simplifies your maintenance by allowing you to keep your template up to date, while preserving your changes.

There is no limit on the number of child templates that you can create so each one could have different layouts and styles.

Accessibility Checker

Jooa11y - The Joomla accessibility and quality assurance tool

Every visitor unable to view your page is potentially a lost customer. Joomla 4's main focus is accessibility, and now we enable authors to create great accessible content with Jooa11y: It visually highlights common accessibility and usability issues.

Ideal for busy content creators, Jooa11y identifies many errors and warnings, providing help and advice on how to fix them. Jooa11y highlights content issues and is integrated into the content authoring experience.

It has never been so easy to create an accessible website.

Syntax Highlighting in the integrated editor

Sometimes the “What you see is what you get” (WYSIWYG) is not enough and you have to switch to the HTML code view.

Now with Joomla! 4.1 all the code is syntax highlighted in the built-in TinyMCE editor. This will make it so much easier to read all of your HTML tags and CSS classes. Markup is clearly displayed.

Additionally, you can search and replace directly in the HTML code view.

Inline Help

After we cleaned up a lot of redundant descriptions In Joomla 4.0 we now implement the ability to toggle on/off detailed inline help when needed. So far, this feature is only available for the global configuration settings but can now be extended to any area and also used by Joomla extensions developers.

You can decide if you need support and toggle the extra help on and off. When you are comfortable with how a particular area works, you can turn inline help off and get that minimalist look back.
