The last step before beta; SilverStripe CMS 3.0 alpha 2 is ready to download and test.
We have come a long way and we are half way there!

Here is what’s new in alpha 2:


  • CMS JavaScript performance and perceived rendering improvements
  • New dedicated "Add page" interface with page type descriptions
  • Improved "Insert Link" dialog with cleaner styles
  • Selected tabs and collapsed panels are now stored in a Cookie for a more consistent interface when returning later to the CMS


  • Support for multi-byte page URLs (e.g. with German Umlauts). Flexible URL filtering through new URLSegmentFilter API
  • Customisable HTML attributes on Form and FormField (which allows better usage of HTML5 and data attributes)



Download the CMS and Framework here.

And as a side note, 3.0 alpha 1 will be no longer available to download.

If you test it, please report any bugs you find to
