Upgrade to 7
I have a question about using the new version 7 of Kentico. Our projected date to go live with a new site we are developing is around the beginning to mid August. I really like the features of the new version but am not sure of it stability at this time.

Although I know there will be risks with encountering bugs in a RC, how safe would it be to use Kentico 7 to develop the site and go live with it 15 days before it actual release (as long as we don't experience any problems during the development stage)? This way we could avoid a full upgrade from 6 to 7 right after releasing the new site and use 7's new features to make our development faster and easier.

Thanks for the help.

RE:Upgrade to 7
Hi,

It is hard to say since we do not know all the bugs in the RC right now since the complete testing was not done yet. So it is up to you if you will take this risk or not.

Then, in October there should be an upgrade procedure available to upgrade to the final v7 release.

Best regards,

Hi Roman,

We expect to have the upgrade from v6 to v7 ready in about 1-2 weeks from now. We are actually working on it, it's already in the final phase of testing. So stay tuned, it will be out soon!

Best regards,
