Since Joomla! 2.5 was released in January of this year, the need to migrate your old site is becoming more and more pressing because the 1.5 version will not be supported forever (as a matter of fact, the security releases for 1.5 have ceased as of April 2012). And if you are going to make the move to 1.6 or 1.7 you might as well just make the complete leap to 2.5 and be another step ahead of the game.
The most powerful features of Joomla! 2.5 are Access Control Lists (ACL), Multi-Database Support and Database Fix. ACL allows you to create unlimited groups and assign appropriate access level permissions to the group such as edit, update, delete, publish, login etc. as you see fit. Before version 2.5, Joomla! worked exclusively with MySQL, but now also supports Microsoft SQL server (however, we still recommend and encourage the use of MySQL). During an upgrade, the Database Version Fix will check to see if your database is up-to-date with any database changes, and will fix any errors it comes across.
