Major Features

Joomla! 3.8 has new routing system and the beginning of a forward compatibility layer with Joomla! 4.0.

Router

A project that has taken years to complete, the new routing system will finally be available to users in Joomla! 3.8. The router defines a new and more flexible interface for developers to handle creating and processing URLs and gives end users more options as it relates to how URLs are displayed (including the often requested ability to remove content item IDs from the URL).
