As you know version 3.0 is the next major release of Joomla after the huge success of version 2.5. Joomla 3.0 is just a bridge to 3.5, and support will end 30 days after 3.1 sees the light of day. Because the changes from Joomla 2.5 to 3.0 are large, there is no core upgrade path, this is indeed a migration process. Joomla 2.5 is still the preferred platform for a vast majority of the users – firstly it’s stable and secure version , secondly huge number of the extensions support
Joomla 2.5 and finally it’s supported till April 2013. But remember that Joomla 3.0 is a first fully mobile & responsive CMS release of the Joomla project. Version 3 is recommended for more experienced users and developers.
