It’s been a little less than 2 years since the first release of ExpressionEngine 6, and today we’re happy to share with the world ExpressionEngine 7. We know this probably sounds like we’re exaggerating, but we believe this is one of (if not the) largest releases of ExpressionEngine there’s ever been. The best way to explain why this is the case is to watch the video below.
For starters, what was previously known as ExpressionEngine Pro has now been rolled directly into ExpressionEngine in version 7, as such pro as a separate upgrade is no more.
Following suit, Low Search, and Low Variables have been rolled into version 7 and renamed to Pro Search and Pro Variables as well. (To hear more on this, and what it means to existing sites, please see the video above)
In addition to this, we’re also happy to announce that ExpressionEngine 7 will also be shipping with:
*additional blog posts to come!
We’re happy to share that in ExpressionEngine version 7 if you’re building a site with 1 user, everything mentioned in this post, as well as what’s coming in version 7 will be free.
If you’re building a site that requires multiple users, a Pro License ($199/year) will be required.
In closing, we want to say thank you; thank you to the community at large! If it wasn’t for you caring enough about ExpressionEngine to provide feedback, thoughts, kudos, or your personal insights we collectively wouldn’t be where we are today, and version 7 wouldn’t be what it is.
