Upgrading from Version 6

This is a major version, there are therefore several things you must be aware of before attempting to upgrade a site.

Upgrading from older versions?

Whats new

  • A brand new design of the entire application
  • All new client-side layer, built on AngularJS and Twitter Bootstrap
  • New Content, Media, Member and datatype editors
  • Search driven navigation
  • Better media handling and upload support
  • List-views for big content collections
  • Everything is faster

Besides the main points above, we've been tweaking every possible part of the application CSS, js and images, making this the fastest version ever.

Documentation for developers

With the shift towards AngularJS and with an entirely new way to build editors, property editors (the artists formerly known as datatypes and datatype editors) and to extend the UI, we have a (temporary) home for Umbraco 7 documentation

NOTE: However, please note that all serverside APIs are the same as in Version 6.x - in case we had to make any changes to them in v7, these have also been made to v6.2.0.

Breaking changes

There are several breaking changes, consult the Umbraco 7 upgrade documentation for further infomation

  • Old property editors do not work anymore
