Joomla 3.10 is the bridge between Joomla 4 and Joomla 3.x. Joomla 3.10 stable will primarily be a release containing backports of API changes from the Joomla 4.0 development branch to help ease the transition to the next major release for the community. Joomla 3.10 will be supported for 2 years after it has been finally released. A new feature is introduced in Joomla 3.10 is the Joomla Update component to help you with your mini-migration process: the Pre-Update Checker.
Once your website is updated to 3.10, the pre-update checker will allow you to check the compatibility with the Joomla 4.0 minimum requirements in terms of the current hosting environment and, more importantly, your installed extensions. This will help you migrate to Joomla 4.0 smoothly.
