Again, sorry for not finding an appropriate ticket category for this question...

I know that Akeeba Release System is not officially supported, but I have been using it for a long time and is quite happy with it, so I was delighted to see the following in "Joomla 4 is around the corner":

Moreover, please do keep in mind that Akeeba Release System DOES have a new version, compatible with Joomla 4, without losing any substantial features.


Looking at the Github repo I find 4.2.2 from 2019 to be the latest release. This release also explicilty does not work with Joomla 3.10. Is there a more recent release somewhere?

Or should "version" in the quote be interpreted as "updated source" rather than "release"? And that in turns mean I have to do the packing from a cloned repo?

Just so I understand what's available.

We have long stopped using GitHub for releases. Look at (you can get there going to our Downloads page, click on the ”main download repository page” link, then click on Akeeba Release System).

However, these tagged releases tend to be very much behind the current source. So always trust the source code more and build it from source.
