Joomla has announced the immediate availability of Joomla 2.5. This new major version comes with a host of new features including new search functionality, multi-database support, and update notifications.
Our extensions are ready
Our team has been extensively testing the latest version of DOCman 1.6 since the early beta releases of Joomla 2.5. Results of the tests showed that DOCman is fully functional and compatible. Minor issues found have been reported to the Joomla development teams and fixed during the beta process.
Upgrading to Joomla 2.5
Joomla 2.5 is a long term stability release (LTS) and will be supported until December 2013 by the Joomla project. Joomla 1.6 and 1.7 are short term releases (STR) and their support ends immediately after the release of a new version. (release cycle infographic)
At Joomlatools, we will support both long and short term releases for 3 more months after their end of life. This means that we will offer support for Joomla 1.7 until the 30th of April 2012.
This gives you the needed time to upgrade your sites to the latest version. If you are running a Joomla site on 1.6 or 1.7, we advice you to upgrade to Joomla 2.5 in the coming weeks. Moving from 1.7 to 2.5 can be done with the one-click upgrade within Joomla.
