With the upcoming release of Joomla 4.0, it is time for us to say goodbye at Joomla 2.5. Almost 3 years ago, Joomla 2.5 was released, this is the first version to run on other database beside MySQL. And it’s also more than 2 months since the day Joomla! team discontinued support for Joomla 2.5. So for us, sooner or later, we still need to get rid of this outdated version to focus completely on developing and improving timely extensions.
At this moment, all products created up to date still support Joomla 2.5 native, but support for any new issues will be limited. Updated versions and new products going forward will now only support Joomla 3.x and later versions. If you have website(s) running on Joomla 2.5, we suggest that you should make the upgrade to at least Joomla 3.0 to continue getting our professional technical support.
