De-couple weblinks from new installs.
This is the first step in de-coupling components from Joomla. At present Joomla contains several components out of the box, many of which are not necessarily needed by the average user. Since these additional CMS components add extra weight to the Joomla package, but aren’t necessarily put to any use, then they serve to make the overall package heavier than it needs to be. Weblinks is a great example of this issue, and so from Joomla 3.4 com_weblinks and all associated modules and plugins will be removed from the Joomla installation package. This is a great first step in making Joomla more user-friendly and making the package lighter.
But don’t worry if your a fan of the weblinks component; it will be still available for use in your Joomla installation, just not included in the core. Instead, it will have an installable package like your average Joomla extension. The GitHub project is already created and every component removed from the core will be available in its own repository inside the Joomla project. What’s more, weblinks should also be added to the JED (Joomla Extension Directory) in a new category for removed Joomla components, including any removed in the future. This extra step will make it easy for user who still require the functionality of the removed components to get them installed and running with just a click from the Joomla administrator area.
