RIP Umbraco v5

Sunday, June 17, 2012

In a shock move this week, the Umbraco Core Team have pulled the plug on Umbraco Version 5.

As we eluded to back in March, the decision by Umbraco to totally rewrite their only product in a new language was against the norm and meant a huge learning curve for all existing customers.  It lacked features too. Moreover, there were features in V4 and previous versions that did not exist in V5 meaning those migrating would face a major programming challenge.

Once of the compelling reasons Umbraco regressed to the previous version is that the whole point of the Umbraco Project was that it was contributed to by the "community". V5 was so complex that it was pretty much impossible to accept contributions from those outside the Core Team.

Asptech are still able provide support and hosting of Umbraco V5 installations for those companies and developers using that version.
