Before updating, make sure you read the change logs and are aware of potential backward compatibility issues.
Moving to Joomla 5 from Joomla 4.4
The upgrade is seamless and no side effects have been reported so far. If you have the latest version installed under Joomla 4.4, no update is necessary when upgrading to Joomla 5.
Migrating to v2.0 from v1.3.x
The initial public version has been release. Please check the section 'Moving to Joomla 4 from Joomla 3.10'.
Migrating to v1.3 from v1.2.x
The migration is not straight-forward, due to the multiple modifications that were brought to this version. Do not install the update on a production site. Your personal files will not be removed and, if you have created your own theme files, all your styles are safe. Core template files will be updated, deprecated files will be removed.
Before updating the template, create a copy of the template's directory (
templates/sywbareresponsive), this will help you pinpoint the differences once the new version is installed.
