Kentico CMS backend engine

Does Kentico CMS backend engine run on ASP.NET web forms? If yes is there any plan on releasing a MVC only engine?

Kentico is built on ASP.NET Web Forms and I don't know that the UI part of Kentico will move off of web forms and to 100% MVC anytime soon. That being said, developing your site with an MVC approach has gotten much better over the last 3 versions but v12 is supposed to have some spectular support for MVC development.

So just to clarify we're talking about 2 different things:

  • the overall Kentico platform (the buttons you click to add content and configure items within the Kentico UI)
  • how you develop you or your clients website within Kentico

Below is the roadmap for Kentico. I suggest checking it often.

If you have any questions, I suggest emailing Kentico Support.
