What is the name of your state? TX

I have a question. I was recently terminated from my probation. My offense was theft. When I was sentenced I recieved 2 years proabtion (deferred adjudication). I just recieved an early termination due to my good behavior while on probation. Today in the mail I got my official paper stating my termination. I am confused as to what the bottom of my paper says and need someone to help me translate the legal terminology. Here is what it states
" This day the court considered the above motion, and is satisfied that the defendant has satisfactorily fulfilled the conditions of community supervision, and that the period of community supervision should be reduced, and cause dismissed.
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that the period of community supervision be and is hereby reduced, and the defendant be and is herbey discharged from community supervision.
It is further ORDERED that the defendant is permitted to withdraw his plea of guilty or nolo contendere; the accusation, complaint, information or indictment and all proceedings against the Defendant are hereby dismissed; the defendant is hereby released from all penalties and disabilities resulting from the offense or crime to which the defendant has pleaded guilty, except that upon conviction of a subsequent offense, the fact that the defendant had previously received community supervision shall be admissable before the Court or jury to be considered on the issue of penalty."

Thank you for helping me in advance.
