Hello C5ers!

I’ll be attending and speaking at the Social Tech Live Conference in July. The main conference is going to be at Florida International University, Miami, Florida July 16th - 17th, 2016.

Two weeks ago we explained how concrete5's versioning works. This week we are giving you an overview of all of our versioning including development versions.

Become familiar with the new features in version 8 and be a pillar of the community. Getting involved is easy. We want your help with testing, coding, and exploring the potential of version 8!

Ready to get started?

Concrete5 7.5.8 is now available. This is a maintenance release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites.

We love our community members. These "Featured Members" are a way for us to shine a light on the people who make up our great community.

Meet Willem. He's a veteran contributor to the concrete5 community. His most recent contribution efforts is with the security, PRB, and certification.

Now, let's hear from Willem...

My dad used to tell a story of his brilliant lead programmer, Larry. He had gone dark for weeks to write the logic for some important calculation that was critical to the key project. Dad had to show progress. Lots of money had been spent and the client needed to see the magic happen. Larry declared himself "Done!" and sat my Dad down for a demo.

We’ve got huge plans and big expectations for version 8, and you need to know all about them.

In order for everyone to understand and follow Semantic Versioning 2.0 we are going to remove the leading 5 from our versioning. The next major version of concrete5 is going to be Version 8.0.0.
