Joomla 4.1.0 Update

The Joomla has announced the features-packed release of version 4.1 stable. It sets new standards in accessible web design and also includes some new important features for bloggers, authors, web designers, developers, and web agencies.

Accessibility Checker in Joomla 4.1.0

Joomla 4 focuses on accessibility, and additionally now allows site authors to create accessible content with Jooa11y: the Joomla accessibility and quality assurance tool that visually highlights common site accessibility and usability issues. It's included by default in Joomla 4.1.

What's important: Jooa11y is not a comprehensive code analysis tool. Read more about the Joomla accessibility checker.
