Joomla! 3.6 Beta 1 Released
Joomla 3.6 Beta 1 is now available. Community members are asked to download and install the package in order to provide quality assurance for the forthcoming 3.6 release.
Please note that going from 3.5 to 3.6 is a one-click upgrade and is NOT a migration. The same is true is for any subsequent versions in the 3 series of the CMS. Please do not upgrade any of your production sites to the beta version as beta is ONLY intended for testing and there is no upgrade path from Beta.
What is this release for?
