  3. Bug fixes will cease April 2014, security fixes only, see http://community.joomla.org/blogs/leadership/1798-raising-the-bar-on-security.html.

    "Also, for the six months after Joomla! 3.3 is released, the Joomla! Project will be releasing Security Updates for both 3.2 AND 3.3 (as well as 2.5) so any new vulnerabilities can be promptly patched with a one-click update without the need to immediately update to Joomla! 3.3, giving you time to request your hosting provider to update their PHP version."
