It’s been a long time coming and now it’s here. SilverStripe 3.0.0 stable has landed and is here for you to download and use. This is a milestone for SilverStripe and the open source community. We have all been working hard for this, and with the help of many of you, we finally got to the stable release.

3.0 looks brand new and is a masterpiece of elegant code and usability, but it is also just the start of something even better. We are already working on the feature list for 3.1, motivated by all the feedback we received from you.

The new feature list is long, we’ve all covered them already in the post about beta 2 and beta 3. The story behind SilverStripe is explained here:

What we’ve done in between beta and stable was fixing a whole lot of bugs that you discovered. Thanks to everyone who has raised bugs on open.silverstripe.org.

We've had 317 commits to the CMS since 3.0.0-beta1 and 1280 to the Framework, written by 48 different authors. This has definitely been a team result and everyone who has contributed to this should be very proud!

I am very proud of what we’ve all achieved, and I’d like to take a moment to thank a few people for their contributions: thanks to Ingo Schommer and Hamish Friedlander, Sean Harvey and Simon Welsh as being some of the biggest core contributors.

Since we released beta 2 on 20 April, there have been 279 tickets raised and 536 closed. Since beta 1 we closed 277 tickets against 3.0 milestones.

The new user interface is summarised in the screencast below, and available to try out at demo.silverstripe.org.

Again; this is a big milestone and a good time to hold in for a moment and to celebrate.

Come and join our Hackathon - let’s build great things with SilverStripe 3, and get even more ideas for SilverStripe 3.1!
