Stick with ez 4.x, upgrade to 5.x or migrate?

Friday 21 December 2012 10:32:07 am - 1 reply

Hi eZ Community members,

With the release of eZ Publish 5, I would be interested in hearing your arguments for any of the following options:

  1. Stick with eZ Publish 4.x until ...;
  2. Upgrade to eZ Publish 5.x as soon as ...;
  3. Migrate to another CMS platform, because ...;

In addition I am also wondering if you are still developing new extensions for eZ Publish 4.x, or whether you now focussing on developing extensions for eZ Publish 5.x. 

I would like to be able to have a more informed discussion with clients about these various options.

Thanks in advance,

My recommendation would be to install eZ Publish 5 and check it out.  See what the differences are, including disk space, performance, server support, ease of use and installation.  It would also be good to identify new features and those which have been deprecated, with special attention to those your clients use or may benefit from.

I would wait about a year before upgrading because of the new framework.
