Joomla 3 was released September, 2012. You may think that you don't need the newest version of Joomla. Before you decide not to upgrade to Joomla 3, I encourage you to do some research.
Why you need to Upgrade
Content management systems (like Joomla, Wordpress, and tons of others) all have different versions. Like most software, every version offers more features, but also include important security updates! With open source software like Joomla, security updates are critically important to avoid having your website hacked.
Not only do older versions run the risk of being hacked, they can also stop working as smoothly on the newer browsers like Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc. And the tech support community will no longer support the older versions so if something goes haywire with your site, there may not be anyone that can help fix it.
Joomla's History of Major Upgrades
Joomla series 1.5, 1.7, or 2.5 are still supported by the Joomla community, however, Joomla 1.0, 1.6 and 1.7 are no longer supported by the Joomla community with security updates. Here is the release and support cycle:
|Joomla version||Release date||End of Life Release||Type|
|1.5||Jan 2008||Sep 2012||Long|
|1.6||Jan 2011||Aug 2011||Short|
|1.7||July 2011||Feb 2012||Short|
|2.5||January 2012||Aug 2013||Long|
|3.0||September 2012||February 2013||Short|
|3.1||March 2013||September 2013||Short|
|3.5||September 2013||Feb 2015||Long|
Your website is a very important part of your business
It's crucial to weigh the risks of migrating to Joomla 3. Joomla 3 is a long term release meaning it will be supported with security updates for quite awhile. Can you afford to have your website hacked and down for days or weeks? Do you know how to fix a hacked site? Please consider those costs before determining the amount of risk you are willing to take by not upgrade.
