Some weeks ago we published the information that we are looking into the router code. Since then we have checked with a team of developers the code for the new router. The initial reason was an issue about it not responding to invalid URLs with the 404. Here we would like to share the reasons why we have came to the conclusion to remove the new router from the 3.7 release.
Before we go into the details we would like to share that we have also thought about the path forward. We know that many people were looking forward to a better router for Joomla. Our plan is to work over the next 2-3 months intensively on the router and we plan a 3.8 release with a new router included. This will be supported by a Google Summer of Code Project and we will setup a team of developers and SEO experts to help to make it the best router the Joomla! Project has ever seen.
We are pleased to announce the launch of the brand new design of the joomla.org homepage! And it’s not only about a new design, the content has been refreshed to make it easy to discover the Joomla! World and more easily find the information you may need.
With over 700 improvements, including fantastic new features like custom fields, a multilingual association manager and an improved workflow, Joomla! 3.7 is clearly something to celebrate and it is easy to see why it has the Joomla! Community very excited.
The Joomla! Project is pleased to announce that we are (finally) ready to release an alpha version of the Joomla! Coding Standards which is compatible with PHP_CodeSniffer 2.x. In preparation for this release, we will be making some structural changes to our coding standards repository which may affect developers using this repository.
The Joomla! Project is pleased to announce the availability of Joomla! CMS 3.7.0 Beta 3. Community members are asked to download and install the package in order to provide quality assurance for the forthcoming 3.7 release.
Joomla! 3.6.5 is now available. This is a security release for the 3.x series of Joomla! which addresses three security vulnerabilities, miscellaneous security hardening and three bug fixes; no further changes have been made compared to the Joomla! 3.6.4 release.

Over the last weeks we have sent mixed messages about Joomla! 3.7 and what will be included in the final version. Without having an alpha/beta version published this is always complicated but with this post we are trying to clear the air.
