We launched the final release of Joomla 2.5 today. We've watched the most incredible community come together for this release. The marketing team worked closely with the Update Working Group and Leadership to create artwork, infographics, videos and raise awareness of Joomla 2.5 end of support.
This is the last release of Joomla 2.5 now what?

The Joomla developers are proud to bring you the absolute latest and greatest CMS software.
Joomla 2.5 is reaching its end of support on December 31st 2014. End of support means that the release shall not be actively developed and maintained from now on. Your website will still function as normal.
Since May 2013 the Vulnerable Extensions List website has performed brilliantly as a much needed resource for the Joomla community at vel.joomla.org .
With Joomla 2.5 coming up to end of life in December and the vel team attempting to be the champions in keeping up to date, we are about to launch vel3.
After consultation, VEl3 will run the same RSformsPro script but will have some other changes.
Business Pizza, Bugs, and Fun October 17, 2014
Please consider this your personal invitation to join us next week, Friday, the 17th of October, for our Business Pizza, Bugs, and Fun event. It's an all-day global event that's open to all virtual participants that are interested. There will also be local venues wherever they are organized. The key goal is to fix as many Joomla 3 and Joomla 2.5 bugs as possible before the next maintenance releases.
Friday October 17th
We've dubbed the event as a Business PBF, since it's on a weekday (Friday) and we'd like to get more businesses involved. Last year's event was a huge success and we'd love it if you join us for this year's. We've created badges that you can use on your sites to spread awareness of the event and get recognition for your participation. For more information, check out our landing page at http://developer.joomla.org/pbf.
