ExpressionEngine 5 is Available Now
30/11/2018 / CMS integration
A momentous event in ExpressionEngine’s history has occurred. We just shipped Version 5, the first release as Free Open-Source Software! A major version change gives a clean break and adds clarity for all users of what license they are running. This version removes licensing and Core feature restrictions, and has no impact on third-party add-ons.
ExpressionEngine development is taking place in public on GitHub, and licensed under a true open-source license: the permissive Apache 2.0 Software License. We are thrilled at what this means for for the vast markets that must use open-source solutions. Earlier today, Rick Ellis explained how we came to this decision, and what it means for our future. We’ve got a lot more to share in the coming days, but suffice it to say, we are pumped! We’ve changed who we are as a company overnight and the adrenaline is coursing! Make sure you check out our new first-party support options and high-end services that are now available. Companies that want to get involved as ExpressionEngine’s service providers can become partners in our ecosystem.
