Joomla 4.0 Alpha 1 Released for Testing

The Joomla Project is pleased to announce the availability of Joomla 4.0 Alpha 1 for download.
 
What’s new in Joomla 4.0 so far?
Removal of deprecated functions from Joomla 3.x
Reworked installer for a quicker and more intuitive user experience
New templates using Bootstrap 4
Reworked Application for Consoles
Integration of Joomla Framework packages
 
What is this release for?
There is one goal for this release: to allow advance testing of custom extensions so that extension developers can report any problems well before the final release.
 
This release includes most of the Joomla Core library changes that will be included with version 4.0.0. Some of these changes will require small changes to extensions.
For a complete list of known backward compatibility issues for version 4.0, please see Potential backward compatibility issues in Joomla 4.0 in the documentation site.
 
Joomla 4.0 is known to not be mobile compatible nor upgradable from Joomla 3.9 at this point.
For the full known issues with the 4.0 alpha-1 release, please see the version 4.0 Alpha-1 FAQ in the documentation site.
