[Update] Joomla! 3.0: When NOT to use

[SmartAddons] Joomla Group has released Joomla! 3.0 beta1 yesterday. This is last milestone before 3.0 version really comes out, which can be used for real Websites. However, it is not highly recommended to upgrade and use this for existing Website, really...

Joomla 3 download

When NOT use?

As we said earlier, Joomla! 3.0 is a standard-term-version, meaning that it is only for short support by Joomla! Group.
After 3.0, there will be 3.5 - a long-term-version for longer support, same as 2.5. You will be able to...
upgrade 2.5->3.5, instead of through 3.0
... that's cool? So you should NOT upgrade to 3.0 if you want to have a stable Website.

How about Joomla! 1.5 and Joomla! 2.5?

Joomla! Group Plans:

  • Joomla! 1.5 now only has security patches, it will be NOT supported after 3.0 release.
  • Joomla! 2.5 will be supported until 3.5 release
  • Joomla! 3.0 will be released on 27 September
  • 2014: End of Joomla! 2.5 and Release of Joomla! 3.5
  • After Joomla! 3.5, version 3.0 is out of support

Being interested in Joomla! 3.0, what's news?

The most famous support from Joomla! 3.0 is Bootstrap and ability to go "responsive". But if you only need responsive, these are Joomla! 2.5 suitable to you:

  1. SJ Mobi
  2. SJ Blog
  3. Others can be downloaded from here
Beside that feature, Joomla! 3.0 is the first time seeing PostgreSQL Driver and PHP Memcached Driver in action. This is only great for scalability if your really need.

Our Plans

Thanks for reading.
