Will PageBuilder v3 get J5 support?

With the reintroduction of the backend editor in SP Page Builder 5, there's little justification for dedicating significant resources to adding Joomla 5 support to the 3.x series. We strongly recommend upgrading to the latest version, as we've rolled out multiple updates that address various critical vulnerabilities in SP Page Builder.

Yes, Helix3 will get Joomla 5 support this week. But I don't recommend using Joomla 5.0.0 on the production site yet, wait for J5.0.2 at least.
