Slack is great. We're there if you want to join us, just goto:

I had the pleasure of meeting 30 some people at a meetup thrown in our honor and sponsored by JBX last week in London.

(With your mind, not your heart.)

I went to PNWPHP again this year and again I was struck by how open and welcoming everyone was. I ended up leaving with a sense of inspiration and community. I truly feel like I’ve met some lifelong friends. Feelings isn’t the only thing I got, there were incredible talks about all kinds of interesting things. Some I knew a little bit about, others completely new to me.

Concrete5 8.0.0 beta 2 has been released for testing and feedback. To find out about the new features, see what’s in store for version 8.

Concrete5 8.0.0 beta 2 is for testing purposes

This version is good for site builders that are comfortable reporting and fixing bugs, and who are prepared to build their test sites from scratch. Beta releases are not recommended for production websites. Do not upgrade any of your production sites to the beta release. Betas are ONLY intended for testing.

You’ve heard us talk about it, and it’s still bumpy in parts, but we’re eager to hear your feedback as you tinker around with Express in version 8 of concrete5.

If you live in Europe, I’d love to meet and say “Hi” this fall. It’s wonderful to learn what people have built with concrete5.

We are proud to announce concrete5 8.0.0 beta 1 has been released for testing and feedback. This is a key milestone and is the work of over 230 contributors! To find out about the new features, see what’s in store for version 8.

concrete5 7.5.9 is now available. This is a maintenance release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites.

Got a bunch of related websites you’d like to share some content between? Wrestling with some complex workflow issues around many editors managing a franchise group, dealer network, political organization or district of websites?

We’d love to hear from you.
