    Installation of umbraco v8.4 patches on umraco v7.12 project

    Hi Team,

    I'm planning to install/ upgrade Umbraco v8.4 in the existing application which supports the Umbraco v7.12.0. And when I started the upgrade it has upgraded the Umbraco SIte and Database properly and everything is working fine from the Umbraco site. But I'm loosing 80% of features from an external application that is connected to the Umbraco system(Due to deprecated function OR newly upgraded library does not support existing source ).

    Now I have the below question.

    • If I'm loosing 80% of existing work while upgrading to v8.4. Can I
      keep the existing version 7.12.0 as it is and only installs the
      Security Patches on top of v7.12.0? Is it possible?
    • Are Umbraco releases only separate Security patches for 7 generations?
    • What will happen in the future if I don't install the latest upgrade (8
      generations) on v7.12.0? How long Umbraco v7.12 application
      will work fine in the future?

    Hi Aviraj

    Moving between the 7 series and 8 series of Umbraco is more of a 'migration' than an 'upgrade'.

    So you would expect a large proportion of the implementation, to require review and ammendment to make the leap.

    In terms of remaining on the 7 series, would suggest you look to upgrade to the latest version of 7.15.3 (this contains all the recent security patches for V7) - Umbraco have announced that they will continue to provide support for Umbraco 7 series until September 30th 2023, which will include bug and security patch fixes (being on the latest 7 version will make it easier to apply them when they are released)
