- What is great about Joomla 3? Mobile. Joomla 3 will be the first major Content Management System to be completely mobile-ready.
- Who is Joomla 3 for? Early adopters. Initially, Joomla 3 is best used by early adopters, developers and more experienced users.
- I am on Joomla 2.5. What do I do? Stay where you are. Joomla 2.5 a wonderful version of Joomla and will be supported until 2014.
In this blog post, we’re going to expand a little on the third point:
Joomla 2.5 is the recommended version for most existing sites and will remain so for another year.
We Recommend Joomla 2.5 for Existing Sites
Joomla 2.5 is the Long Term Support (LTS) version of Joomla. That means that it has already undergone many months of real-world testing. Joomla 2.5 is stable, tested and reliable. Joomla 2.5 is the version being used by Joomla.org.
Joomla 2.5 is the right choice for existing sites.
We Recommend Updating from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.5
For most people, we recommend that you update from Joomla 2.5 only when Joomla 3.5 is released around September next year.
Below is our graphic with our recommendations for updates. As you can see, with Joomla 3 there are several Short Term Support (STS) releases before the final version 3.5 is released and is recommended for everyone.
How to Update from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.5
Joomla 2.5 has a one-click update feature. This allows you to update Joomla quickly and easily.
This one-click update feature is how most people will update from Joomla 2.5 to Joomla 3.5.
You can find the options for this feature by logging into a Joomla 2.5 site and going to Components > Joomla! Update > Options. I’ve included a screenshot of the Options area below:
You can see that, by default, the one-click update feature is set up to update you from your current Long Term Support version ( Joomla 2.5 ) to the next Long Term Support version ( Joomla 3.5 ) . This means that you won’t be prompted to move from Joomla 2.5 until next year when Joomla 3 has also undergone substantial real-world testing.
If you are an early adopter, developer or more experienced user, then we think you’ll love Joomla 3 right now.
Next year, after more real-world testing, we think everyone will love Joomla 3. At that time, Joomla 3.5 will be available as a one-click update option from your administrator area.
Joomla 2.5 is currently the recommended version for existing sites and will remain so until the release of 3.5.
