I soft launched the new version today.
Although I’ve done my best to ensure 7.0 has been tested extensively, it’s always my users who find the most interesting edge cases. That said, I’m going to need a few weeks to identify and iron out all the kinks before we let everyone upgrade.
So here’s how it’s going to roll out.
Starting today, all new signups will go to the new version. This will give me a slow but steady stream of users that can help me identify problems before we open the gates for the masses.
If you’re a 5.1 user (i.e. anyone who signed up before today), you’re more than welcome to create an account to try it out. Remember that your 5.1 account will not be linked to your new account, and there’s no way to import your existing sites/users just yet.
In the meantime, I still have some things I’d like to address including the aforementioned non-SSL websites issue, better onboarding for new users, and a small demo site for new users.
It’s always busy up here.
Of course, with a new version comes a new marketing website.
I’d really like to polish up the docs more once the dust settles. I have a lot of blog posts to write and videos to record, but I feel like this is a great start.
For historical purposes, the old website and docs can still be found here: v5.surrealcms.com
I’ll write more about the differences between 5 and 7 tomorrow. For now, I suggest skimming the new docs to learn about what’s new and what’s changed.
Thanks for your continued patience as I continue rolling out the new version.
