Version 8.0 is Now Available!2 users found helpful
A full list of what's new can be found in the blog post. I will be doing a number of videos and some additional documentation over what's new in version 8 (specifically Express Data objects) in the coming days, but right now the best way to check it out is to download a copy and start playing with it. You'll need PHP 5.5.9+ to run v8, but otherwise most of the requirements should be the same. We're excited about this release and all of the things that are new in it, and are eager to get feedback, fix bugs, and keep this train moving.
I know people are going to love the new Form block.
I just saw your post about version 8 !
I am very excited to try version 8 but I am not sure if I can use it for my customers ?
Do you know if it is stable enough ?
The new file manager with -----folders----- should be more highlight. This is not just a "bullet in a list" - its also change in the way you organize your project and huge time saver when you want to choose files (common task). Better UI for novice and advanced.
"Content block" is now work with - CKeditor - the best editor i ever seen :)...I hope in the future C5 add docs about "how to" add manually useful plugins like YouTube embed, <> code highlighter or give this in the core.
+ Support of change admin language (useful for endless users)
I also like the top green progress bar when you save/publish pages.
I think I am going to use version 8 than ! :D
I am working on the new version of CMSGuide.info, which will make use of express data. I have several other projects that will definitely utilize this feature.
Express data adds a lot of flexibility, especially in the way data is handled.
@nesoor – I put together a quick video showing a simple example of what Express is capable of if you're interested
Thanks for the video ! That looks very cool it's also very dynamic.
I was just learning on how to build a multi language site in Concrete5 and I think this is something I also have to look into ! !
The more I work with Concrete5 the more I like it haha.
Can you make its installation sort. it is taking 20 minutes to install a blank site..
An installation that takes 20 minutes leads me to believe there is an issue with your web host.
From my experience, installing v8 with full site content takes 2-3 minutes on an inexpensive shared host. Using XAMPP on Windows 7 x64, it installs in 2 minutes.
Sir I am installing on local system .
Windows 10 x64 i3
Is something wrong in my system ?
I am using php 5.5.12
it didn't time out though
