Orchard v0.8 Released


Posted by admin on September 01, 2019

Well we have all been waiting for it!… Orchard v0.8 is released, excellent. Thanks a lot to the Orchard team, cant wait to dig my teeth in, and migrate my blog up to v0.8 from v0.5 (hoping there is a upgrade path – fingers crossed)

An email sent from Bradley Millington announced it today -

“Forgive the terse email, but I wanted to let you all know that the Orchard 0.8 release is officially live:

The Outercurve Foundation will be publishing a blog post about the release early tomorrow.

We are especially proud of this release, as it finally brings the long-promised theme engine to life. We added widget support as the icing on the cake.

The docs for this release are a little behind, but we are working to catch up the docs as quickly as possible. In the meantime, the Orchard Discussions on Codeplex are always good place to tap the expertise of the Orchard team to get your questions answered.


Bradley (on behalf of the rest of the Orchard team)”

The current iteration delivered:

  • Migration of existing themes and modules to new theming engine, new developer theme
  • Theme packaging
  • Widgets All I can say is, what can I look forward to in the next iteration.
