Craft 3 Beta

— #CraftCMS #Development #Website #Updates

Fancy a dabble in Craft CMS? If you missed it earlier this year, Craft 3 Beta is here and has lots of great new features.

Although it is still in Beta, we’re quite excited about Craft 3. This is a big update from Craft 2 (our CMS of choice for our clients’ websites) with over 640 changes logged for this version.  You can get your hands on Craft 3 over on GitHub (https://github.com/craftcms/cms) including the full history and documented issues.  

As a reminder, some of the new features include:

  • Multi-sites
  • Improved content migrations
  • Utilities in Control Panel – updates, server reports, PHP info etc.
  • PHP 7
  • Plugin changelogs
  • Image Editor- including focal points
  • More refactoring
  • More speed

There are still bugs to work out, which is why we’re not migrating our clients across just yet. Considerations for plugins, more bug testing and feedback is all taking place at Pixel and Tonic HQ. Once stable releases are in place, we’ll be in touch with our clients to let them know the exciting news.
