    Umbraco Team,

    We are using Umbraco 7.4.3. with Umbraco forms 4.3.2. We want to know that till when it will be supported officially?

    Also, let us know how we can proceed to upgrade the latest one.

    I appreciate your help.

    Thanks, Nitesh

    Hi Nitesh,

    Umbraco support is available for the old version (v4.x, v6.x) and sites are running on them too. But it is always better to keep site latest otherwise any changes in the old environment is difficult due to lack of available skills. Also new Umbraco built fixes lot of issues and performance optimised. So, best to stick to upgraded version.

    Currently, Umbraco is on v8.5 so your version is quite old and migration will be decent leap. We have recently moved couple of v7.4 site to v8.5 so have fair bit of idea on what is required.

    This is good article to start. https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/getting-started/setup/upgrading/migrating-to-v8

    We will upgrade v7.4 to v7.6 first as user security has changed so best is to fix it. Then we upgrade to v7.14.

    At this stage we need to update all the old data type with updated data types. ex: Media Oboslete to Media new, Content Picker Oboslete to Content Picker New etc.

    Once all data type is updated or removed then you are ready to migrate to v8.5.

    Cheers,

    Shaishav
