Joomla! 3.0 - Getting Started with Joomla! page
Hi Topazgb, thanks for contributing to the wiki page, Getting Started with Joomla!.
I have undone your edit twice on the part where you call Joomla! 3.0 an LTS version. Joomla! 3.0 is not an LTS version and support will end for 3.0 shortly, about April 25, 2013. Please refer to, the Joomla! Release and support cycle.
There is too much confusion already about what is and what will be supported and for how long. 3.0, 3.1, 3.2 are all STS versions with a rough 7 months of support. The 3.0, 3.1, and 3.2 versions will be working towards the 3.5 version which will be an LTS (Long Term Support) version. 3.5 is estimated to be released end of March, 2014. Thanks! -- Tom Hutchison (talk) 23:50, 10 March 2013 (CDT)
3.0, 3.1, 3.2 are Short Term Releases that have Long Term Support "support for 3.x ends in 2016." http://www.joomla.org/download.html 3.0, 3.1, 3.2 are all 3.x and therefore as support for them ends in 3 years time they are by definition LTS.
