Joomla 3.10 is released alongside Joomla 4 as the last minor release of Joomla 3. Joomla 3.10 will continue to be supported with security fixes until 17th August 2023. As it is now a year since the release of J4.0, you should be planning or in the process of migrating to the latest version of Joomla. We provide resources to help with the migration on the documentation site.
