Updated to Joomla 5.0.3

This is one of the oldest web sites based on the content management system Joomla on the Internet. We started with Joomlas predecessor and moved to Joomla in 2006 and we are celebrating years of hard work by Joomla volunteers, who had the vision to produce a new major version and have delivered, for everyone. Joomla 5 is FAST! And it has a host of enhancements, while maintaining compatibility with Joomla 4's default theme 'Cassiopeia' which we have customised for this site. Watch the Joomla 5 video, and go to the Joomla 5 landing page to find out more.

Thank you from 928uk to everyone involved in the Joomla community.

User Interface: Enhancements in dark mode for the Atum administrator template and the new Joomla modal window for select buttons promise a smoother user experience.

Tools & Plugins: The TinyMCE editor gets an update to 6.7 with added image alignment features. Several scheduled tasks have been moved to scheduler plugins, enhancing system performance.

Media Management: AVIF support in the media manager and the ability to exclude archived content from smart search indexing improve media handling capabilities.

Enhanced Security: Events have been migrated to their classes, and the removal of no longer functional Recaptcha plugins boosts security.

Modern Technologies: Internal code restructuring focuses on utilising more modern APIs. There's added JS Import map support for Web Asset Manager and deprecated fixes for php 8.2.

Extensions & Compatibility: Joomla 5 introduces Fontawesome 6.4, Codemirror 6, and has updated its Webauthn Library. Notably, Joomla now requires PHP 8.1, MySQL 8.0.13+, MariaDB 10.4+, and PostgreSQL 12+ for optimal performance.

Cleaner Code Base: Joomla 5 places a strong emphasis on code cleanliness. The transition from older APIs, removal of es5 support, and other heavily coded cleanups ensure the CMS runs efficiently.

Joomla 5 encapsulates modern requirements for a CMS, promising its users a combination of speed, security, and an intuitive user experience.
