5.6 Support Period and the status of Migration Tool
- How long we are going to support 5.6 for bug fixes
- When the Migration Tool become available at Marketplace for everyone to start migrating to 5.7
Mentioned by a Japanese user by the following thread
Yes, I am aware of Andrew's post, but it would be nice to discuss whether the add-on should be available on marketplace or not.
And we need to discuss about the support of 5.6.
As for 5.6 only the core team knows how long they will support it.
So, I'd say it's still rather vague in regards to how much longer it will be until 5.6 and older is no longer supported.
Personally, it's troublesome to download the migration tool add-on from GitHub from the user point of view.
I'm fine with to leave the 5.6 support policy vague.
I'm already putting my 99% of effort to 5.7 and 8 personally, too.
But at the some point, it would be nice to make an official announcement
If I have to migrate my 5.6 website using the current tools, I'll write a new website in Wordpress where they never would have done such a stupid thing.
concrete5.6 support ends when concrete5.org upgraded the marketplace.
