The JED Team will be closing down the Joomla 1.5 Extensions Archive on March 1, 2014.
The archive was created in February of 2013, following community feedback, to allow users an additional year to find Joomla 1.5 extensions. It also has aided developers to transition their extensions and in some cases fork abandoned extensions to 2.5 and 3.x.
The JED's 1.5 Timeline
- April 1, 2012: we stopped accepting Joomla 1.5 extension submissions.
- February 15, 2013: the Joomla 1.5 compatibility icon was disabled for new submissions.
- February 15, 2013: the Joomla 1.5 Extension Archive site was deployed on http://archive.extensions.joomla.org.
- March 1, 2013: We removed listings that were marked as Joomla 1.5 only and removed the 1.5 icons.
- March 15, 2013: all non-compatible listings were purged from the system.
- March 1, 2014: the Joomla 1.5 Extension Archive site will be closed.
A copy of the site will be packed and put into storage. At this time, we have no intentions of distributing or sharing any portions of the archive outside of the Joomla Project.
