For those that may have missed the big news earlier this Spring, Joomla's development cycles have changed and here's the quick down and dirty details...

  • No more STS (short term support) and LTS (long term support) release cycle plans
    • Just stable STS releases from now on
    • 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, and etc.
    • The Joomla 3.x series will be around for a long time!
  • Core components (Weblinks, Newsfeeds, Banners, etc.) will begin to disappear from new Joomla versions in the move towards a lightweight CMS
    • The core components will become available as officially supported add-ons
  • Complete details can be found on the official Joomla CMS Roadmap

How does this impact users of different versions?

  • Joomla 1.5 users: No impact. The same advice still applies - migrate now!
  • Joomla 2.5 users: No impact. Support will continue until at least the end of 2014.
  • Joomla 3.x users: Undoubtedly this is good news. Joomla 3 will probably have a much longer shelf-life.
