Frz: Hi concrete5 community! Franz and Andy here…

Andrew: We’re back!

 


I am very pleased to announce that concrete5 8.4.0 is now available! It's been a long time coming (8.3.2 was released back in January), but we hope it's worth the wait. There are a lot of new features, improvements and fixes here.


We believe free and easy communication of ideas through computers is important.


Whew, it’s been a remarkably busy spring with lots of exciting developments for the PortlandLabs team. We still need to come up for air and make some public announcements. Stay tuned for more on that stuff soon.


concrete5 8.4.0 is coming very soon, and today we're happy to announce a new release candidate. Release candidate 2 fixes some issues with the first release candidate, and adds a couple new features like a CKEditor update, some new events and more.


We've had a roadmap page on concrete5.org for awhile. It's generally been a high-level affair, with us sharing some general thoughts about the direction of the platform. But it's hardly been the specific, granular roadmap that people have been looking for. That's going to change today.


concrete5 8.3.2 is now available. This release is recommended for anyone using 8.3.0, and those who have wanted to update to 8.3 from an earlier version. This version further fixes problematic updates from earlier versions of concrete5 as far back as 5.7.5.13, updates CKEditor to the latest version, and provides a number of small but important bug fixes. Download today!

We are happy to announce that the first update to concrete5 8.3, version 8.3.1, is now available. This is a maintenance release but it's add some nice new features and fixes some bugs in 8.3.0. Any site running 8.3.0 is encouraged to update, and those that are behind should now take another look at 8.3.0. 

The biggest new feature to 8.3.1 is the upgrade path: it's now possible to update from any version as far back as 5.7.5.13 to 8.3.1 directly. This update also comes with some improvements to the process for multilingual sites, so anyone with a multilingual site running 5.7.x that has wanted to upgrade, we're hoping you'll take another look at 8.3.1.

View all the new features in 8.3.1 here.

8.3.0 is a huge release, adding previous commercial add-ons like the Document Library and the concrete5 calendar to the core for free! Learn more about 8.3.0 here.
