Re: [joomlabayarea] Joomla 3 Retiring as Joomla 4 Comes to Life

Jenn, i did find this confusing:

this means that 3.9 will be the final release of the 3.x series and that 3.x as a whole will soon reach end of support. Also, at this point most feature proposals should be directed toward the 4.0 release; minor features may be evaluated and included in one of the final 3.x releases. This will be at the discretion of the release leads.

Joomla! 3.9, as the final release, will be supported for a period of two years once it is released. 
Bug and security support will be ensured for a window of 12 to 18 months, the remaining time will be security support only.

So, Joomla 3.9 is has 2 years of support. That's a good long time. I wouldn't say that was "soon" for end of support. The statement in the first paragraph might cause uneccesary apprehension and fear, and might be used against Joomla by it's competitors and detectors, especially if taken out of context.

Looks like we may get another chance to test the router for 3.9. 😁

Oh I knew you didn't mean it directed at me. 

Yes, the waiting for extensions. That's a part of it too. Hopefully the extensions developers will jump on it faster this go around since there isn't any LTS anymore.

I'm sorry Jenn. I didn't mean to imply that it was your title. I was just making a comment.
I do wish there was more coordination with marketing within Joomla to make sure the titles are better thought out. It'll never happen, but i wish.
In the past, I've had to wait until enough of the extensions were available in the new version before adopting the new version
I'm sure that Joomla will get better and better, as it has been doing all along

I didn't make the title, just copied it from the article on the site. When I went back to look for it, I swear it had changed from what I originally saw but ... <shoulder-shrug>

That's exactly right...3 to 4 will be a mini-migration just like 2.5 to 3 was (is).

Drupal, yes. In a way I think we all understand this. WP, we shall see what happens to them over the long, long haul.

The main reason I wanted everyone to know about this is so that they could plan. We have two years from whenever 3.9 is released until the Joomla 3 series will be end of life. That's something we should be keeping track of for our own sites and/or client sites so we can plan.

I normally wait a while after a new life cycle is released before starting migrations on client sites and I always test in the lab. I reckon I'll have to write some new docs for docs.joomla.org too. Breathing. ;)

That title makes it sound catastrophic. I hate the title.
It'll be a transition, just like from 2.5 to 3
Just for perspective, there is a lot of resistance in Drupal on going from 7 to 8.
WP doesn't have that problem, because it's just the same old shit with them.

Hi Group,

The Joomla! Project has published some updates on Joomla 3 (and 4) and so I wanted to pass them on so you would all be in the loop.

See https://developer.joomla.org/news/676-joomla-3-retiring-as-joomla-4-comes-to-life.html

Replies to this email go to the ENTIRE group. Be mindful.

Best,

Jenn
