Hello Bruce,

If you have existing web apps using 2.3.32 it would be easiest to update 
to 2.3.34 for the latest security updates.

In the future, to use the 2.5.x series, you'll need to perform some 
migration steps.  Review the Version Notes for 2.5 to get started, 
especially "Internal Changes" and "Package names have changed".

As to why there are both 2.3.x series and 2.5.x series releases, my 
understanding is that one significant reason is "Struts2 is now build 
with JDK7" as of the first 2.5 release.
