OpenCms 8 has been released on May 09, 2011 and is available for download.

The roadmap for our further development is:

OpenCms 8.0

  • Version 8.0.1 will be available by June 29, 2011.
  • Version 8.0.2 to be released on August 18, 2011.

Both Version 8.0.1 and 8.0.2 will be maintenance releases targeted to bring small improvements and fixes to the new ADE interface.

We need your feedback about OpenCms 8.0, please report all issues you find to our OpenCms Bugzilla issue tracker.

OpenCms 8.5

OpenCms 8.5 will be the next major release and is scheduled for May / June 2012.

The general focus of OpenCms 8.5 will be to improve the ADE user experience even further. One of the things we certainly want to do is to improve the XML Content Editor and replace it with a dynamic, JavaScript based version. More details to be announced.

Alkacon OCEE

The OpenCms Enterprise Extensions (OCEE) is a set of Commercial OpenCms Modules from Alkacon. Many large scale OpenCms installations use Alkacon OCEE in order to improve performance and scalability.

  • The current OCEE Version is 2.1.4, compatible with OpenCms 7.x. 
  • OCEE Version 3.0 (Required for OpenCms 8) is to be released by May 25, 2011.
  • There will be no further releases of OCEE 1.0 for OpenCms 6.x.
