New Joomla releases

Since Joomla 1.6 was released in January, Joomla begun on a new release strategy. It is given every two versions at the same time, one short and one long. Joomla 1.7 is a short version, which was supported by agust 2011 to January 2012. Joomla 1.5 is running right now as a long version, and they will run in parallel with Joomla 1.7. Joomla 1.5 will be supported until April 2012. There will be a new long version in January and a new card for next July. See picture below to better grasp Joomla future release cycle. Please note that the next release will be called Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 1.8 not.

When we develop components for Joomla, we make them generally fit for all versions of Joomla. However, it may happen that we make some extensions only for the long version, because it requires a lot of resources that continue to update them every six months. For the same reason, the long versions of Joomla usually 20,000 modules and extensions, while short-term only has about 3000.
