Joomla 2.5 Is Here
This is the release we've been waiting for
On Tuesday, January 24th, the Joomla development team released Joomla 2.5.0. This is the release we've been waiting for. It's got a much more flexible category structure, better out-of-the-box search engine optimization, definable user groups and permissions, easier software upgrades, better administrator interface, and a lot more. We've already converted our own 3by400.com site to Joomla 2.5, so yes, 2.5 is ready for prime-time. This is also the next step in the Joomla teams new strategy of a well-planned development roadmap. Joomla 2.5 is a Long Term Support (LTS) release, which will be maintained and supported until the end of 2013. In mid-2013 the next LTS release, Joomla 3.5 will be available. So what does this mean for you, our 1.5 customers? It means it's time to upgrade. Joomla 1.5 will be supported at least through May 1st of this year. After that, there'll be no more enhancements or security patches. See this infographic for more of the story. We've already had discussions with some of you about upgrading. If we haven't yet, we'll be in touch soon. Or you can always contact us to get the ball rolling. We've excited about the new tools and design possibilities that Joomla 2.5 opens up to help you grow your business.
