Umbraco 7 is comingAuthor: Mossy Breen
In fact it’s here, in RC mode. We haven’t installed it yet, but we are very excited about some of the upgrades that come with newest version of Umbraco. Umbraco is our go to Content Management System and allows us to integrate with our custom software seamlessly for our clients.
We love umbraco. We’ve used it as our CMS since version 3. In fact, one of our clients still uses version 3 and it’s still working perfectly for their needs. But over the years, the backend management site has become quite cumbersome and was definitely in need of an overhaul. The workflow for the backend starts to creak when a site/blog starts growing in size. The new version promises to solve a lot of those problems by using more of a wordpress style for handling large news archives or blogs.
Management of media and images is also drastically improved and we know that these features will be welcomed by a lot of our clients.
Our own marketing website (this one, the one you’re reading right now) will likely be our testing ground to get used to the new UI and features of Umbraco 7. Once we’re happy we can deliver it as part of great software solutions to our clients with it we will begin the rollout/upgrade.
