Today is an important day for the Joomla! Project. After two years of hard work by our dedicated volunteers, we are thrilled to release our new major version, Joomla 5.0, alongside Joomla 4.4.

What is Joomla 5?

Joomla 5 is a major version upgrade that comes with plenty of new features, security enhancements, and code improvements. The platform has been redesigned to make use of the latest server languages, offering an increased speed.

Whether you’re an individual, blogger, charity, web agency, or multinational, Joomla 5 is tailored to grow with you and your business. It’s an upgrade, not a migration, making the transition from Joomla 4.4.x to Joomla 5.x smoother than ever.

We are running a Joomla website that was several versions down-level, our commercial server service had an issue during a conversion. and we were unable to get into the back-end of our site. Several 'Joomla experts' later it still wasn't fixed. We ran across Revibe Digital and Brett during a Google search and Brett told us he could help us. Brett was true to his word and our website was up and running again. We were amazed at how quickly he fixed the site, it's not easy when you are a half a world away to coordinate passwords and others parameters. Brett also treated us like we were family when it came to the billing for his work. I was blown away at how reasonable his charges were. If you are looking for an extremely competent Software Engineer that knows his product line then look no further. I wholeheartedly recommend you contact Brett at Revibe Digital no matter where in the world you reside. Thank you very much Brett.

Great work! We hired Revibe to finish up a Joomla project begun by another firm that was not going well. With a minimum of direction, they jumped in right away and took care of all outstanding tasks, exactly as we asked for. It was quite a thrill to watch a firm move so quickly and understand what was needed with only two emails of explanation. In addition, pricing was very fair. Our only regret is that we didn't start with Revibe to begin with. Highly recommended!

Working with Brett @ Embed has been fantastic! He is always super helpful, quick to respond to queries and get things fixed. No query has been met with no, a solution to what we wanted to do has always been found. They work well with our other suppliers, and are always helpful.
