Production Version

Monday 27 May 2013 12:19:47 pm - 4 replies

Hi eZ Community!

I'm new to eZ Publish and looking for a new CMF/S. I've been studying the past days the docs and all the interesting features of eZ Publish.

Now I'd like to use eZ Publish for the first project but I'm not sure which version to choose - 4.x, the latest Community Project 2013.5 (assuming it is eZP 5.0) or eZP 5.1-dev (github)?

According to this article 5.1 should be considered for production, however the community edition is still alpha.

Thanks in advance for any further information and/or suggestions!

Hi !

I hope I'm not wrong, but you can use 2013.5 without problems ! It is the 5.1 version and it's working like a charm for me happy.gif Emoticon

Hi Boris,

You are safe to use 2013.5. It is by no means to be considered as alpha. It follows the enterprise version with regards to development. The Community release is however distributed each month, which means you already have fixes incorporated, and maybe some new innovation/changes/features as well. Those new features (for example) have not gone through the regular QA of the Enterprise version of course. But other than that, it should be stable.

Some extra information:

If you have any further questions, do let us know.

You can also get an overview of the enterprise / community synergies & interactions on this slide:

To summarize, community releases are built from the master version on GIT. Two month before an enterprise release (may & november), engineering freezes master, and the stabilization process starts. During this phase, certification findinds are backported to master. But new features, enhancements, and bug fixes that aren't part of certification are not added to the 5.1 code.

This is what makes the Enterprise version more stable, but doesn't mean that community is an alpha version. But it is at some times a very bleeding edge version, depending on what is being developed and contributed.
