ocPortal v10, what it's all about

Posted 09 August 2013, 6:03 PM

Hi all,

It's been a while now since we released v9 gold. Pretty much since v9 came out we've been developing v10, but we haven't really said much about it yet. I'm not about to do a big PR thing, but I thought it would be good to give a quick update on things.

The gap between v10 and v9 will probably be the longest between any two ocPortal versions. There are 4 reasons for this…

  1. The gap between v8 and v9 was very small

It's good to have some word on the subject. I am actually surprised at how patient the users of ocPortal have been as most other CMS' I know when word gets out there is a new version in development there's an avg of 3 posts a month of "When is it comming out?" lol. Haven't seen a lot of those here and a lot of it could do with people are quite happy with the system as is and are willing to wait petiently for the improvements but I think it is also because they CAN see how hard Chris and his team work at making ocPortal constantly better and at one of the fastest rates of bug fixing, feature changing, and new release efforts of any CMS. They know it is getting done and will come as fast as is humanly possible from this expert team. No need to bug about it.

Best CMS on the Web!

Hi Chris, I've been using and a supporter of OcPortal for over two years and it's second to none, the best CMS software available. Very excited for v10. My guess, (reading between the lines) you mentioned OcPortal is almost 10 years old. Hmmm, could you be trying for v10 release on this anniversary date? lol. Just want to say and I can't speak for everyone but I think we all appreciate the hard work you've put into making OcPortal #1 the best! If v9 rocks I can't wait to see v10. BTW - your blog post made me join the community after 2 years behind the scenes. :)  Hi everyone! :thumbs:

You are making me excited Chris. You shouldn't do that :P.

v10 sounds like it will be quite the release, and I am sure that it will be excellent. While I know that you can't promise non-breakage, I do hope that with v10 the upgrade will be as painless as possible.

Sounds good Chris! We will wait :)

So, when is it coming out?  :P

I can honestly say I don't remember reading where anyone has asked in the last 6-8 months about a release date (other than inquiring about it's progress).

I think some of this might have to do with the quick release from 8 to 9, and maybe most are not really ready to jump to the next release so soon since going to 9 was a big jump for most.

nice to see the outline of big jumps  :cool:

Thought I would mention that for some reason this news announcement doesn't show up in the 'Recent News' block on front page

Hi,

Yes, I posted this under my blog, as it's not really a public announcement yet, more of a community update for those carefully watching :).

Are we there yet?  :lol:

Just thought that I would ask …..

We plan to release v10 at some point next year. There is still a lot of work to do; we don't want to release something that only partially addresses structural changes that we think need making.


Oh cool

Just noticed this :)

Thanks for the heads-up. I'm finding v9 to be more than adequate for my needs, but looking forward to see what v10 brings. :cool:

Were some posts lost? I remember asking a question here and then clarifying with a visual example, but now the posts are gone or moved to a more appropriate place. The link in the email takes me to a completely unrelated thread.

Was the post in the last few weeks as 16 days of posts were lost in a server failure

I'm not sure, maybe :\

That sucks, sorry to hear that and thank you for the info.
