|Joomla Migration from 1.5 to 2.5|
On January 24th, 2012, the Joomla Project released Joomla 2.5 - the next Long Term Support (LTS) release for the Joomla CMS. If you have a website currently built with Joomla 1.5, you should begin now to plan a migration to Joomla 2.5. Support for Joomla 1.5 will end later in 2012.
With this new release, many of the features you enjoyed in Joomla 1.5 have been improved and other new features have been added. (See this release) Extension developers have been working hard as well to update their software to include access to these new and improved features in Joomla 2.5. Now is a great time to upgrade your site and take advantage of what Joomla 2.5 has to offer.
