Preparations have begun at JoomShaper to embrace Joomla 4. We expect Joomla 4 is going to renovate the CMS world which will include reshaping and improving the current web technologies. As discussed in a previous article, we are fully aware of that fact and we have started to restructure our products to provide full support with the upcoming changes. As a token of that, today we have updated 3 of our components to get ready for Joomla 4.
