The beta release


Remember that this is a beta version, so it's essential first to make a backup of the site on which you're testing it. We do not recommend installing this version on production websites.

We have tested the release. However, we'd like to ask you to check this version first. If you find any issues, please let us know, and we will fix it in the stable version.

Maybe we should add something more to the stable release? Do you miss any features?

The stable version will be released within a few weeks as we gather feedback about the beta version.

Who can use the Beta version for Joomla 5?

All DJ-MediaTools active subscribers can download the beta version from the download section.
