    I'm also really interested to know this. No point in trying to move to 8 until Forms and Courier are both working flawlessly for us.

    I dont think it will be relased for V8, but Umbraco Deploy should be on it’s way —

    We are not upgrading to Umbraco 8 either, if courier is not available. I thought Umbraco deploy was for cloud?

    Any more on this?

    I'm about to start a new Umbraco project and need to Staging/ Production process.

    Am I best sticking with V7? or what options do I have for V8.

    The link above was updated in July 2018 so I'm 100% it will work with V8.

    *Feels wrong to start a new project without using the latest version.

    Are there any news about Courier or Umbraco Deploy?

    I asked Umbraco support similar questions today:

    Hello, I'm a bit at a crossroads here. I'd like to use Umbraco 8 instead of Umbraco 7 for my next project, though I have clients that require ownership of their infrastructure for legal reasons. This means I cannot use Umbraco Cloud.

    At the same time I need a way to transfer content like I used to do with Courier and Umbraco 7. After a lot of digging (since it's not so obvious on the purchase page that Courier only applies to Umbraco 7), it looks like my only option would be to user a 3rd party plugin like uSync. I know you have something in the roadmap that allows for on-premise Umbraco 8 content deployment (similar to Courier), but that seems like a long ways away for something stable that I need now.

    Question 1: So, for those of us in my situation that cannot use Umbraco Cloud, are the only options right now to A) use Umbraco 8 and uSync or B) stay with Umbraco 7 and Courier?

    Question 2: I read somewhere that Umbraco 7 will receive critical patches til 2023. Given Umbraco 8 launched without Courier compatability, is Courier essentially deprecated for Umbraco 8+? If so, will Courier at least receive patches til 2023 too, along with Umbraco 7?


    First of all, you are correct that Umbraco Courier will not work with Umbraco 8. This means, that if you need a similar functionality on your Umbraco 8 projects, you'll need to use another tool. You mention uSync youself, which is a very good tool, that we like to recommend!

    For your questions: 1: Both option A and option B are valid options. If you're accustomed to using Courier, I'd suggest that you stay with Umbraco 7 and Courier. If you're really eager to go Umbraco 8, I'd recommend that you try out uSync, as it essentially does the same as Umbraco Courier.

    2: It is correct that we will continue to release critical patches for Umbraco 7 until 2023. I do believe the same goes for Umbraco Courier. No new features will be released though.

    I hope that all makes sense, and answers your questions. Please let me know if there anything further I can help you with.
