I predicted that the release of Joomla 2.5 would be a smooth process that was unlikely to cause any major problems for sites that were already running Joomla 1.7. Wrong! Many of you reported difficulties with extensions and even the update process caused some confusion (see How to avoid the Joomla 2.5 upgrade blues). We were even caught by surprise when our membership software failed and we had to restore a backup. But several weeks have now passed and if you haven't already upgraded from 1.7, it's time to make the test and make the change.

I need your feedback about this latest release so please provide some feedback in the comments section below. If you haven't caught up with the latest features, see my What's new in Joomla 2.5 video. Here are some questions you might like to answer:

What is your favourite Joomla 2.5 feature? How has this made your life easier?

What feature do you think is missing?

Was the upgrade process easy?

Is your site still running on Joomla 1.5? Are you planning to migrate to 2.5?

I'll comment on your comments in a post next week.
