This week we welcome the official release of Joomla! 2.5 and the official death (unsupported) of Joomla! 1.7. This is quite scary because I haven’t had the chance to check out the latest version. I have just downloaded it and I’m about to test it locally. I have no idea what to expect yet in terms of component compatibility. Joomla! core developers are working their butts off and they are surpassing the speed of third-party developers in updating compatible components. Life was a lot easier when Joomla 1.5 was out and they kept it to that version for a very long time. A reminder that 1.7 was released less than a year ago and just months after 1.6. came out.
