SilverStripe 4.0.0-alpha5 has been released!

This release includes some breaking changes over 4.0.0-alpha4. To upgrade, please ensure you consult the 4.0.0 upgrading guide and change notes:

Highlights from this release includes new i18n, config, and caching backends, as well as additional feature development within the assets section.

In particular, please note that `_ss_environment.php` has been superseded with a non-dynamic `.env` configuration system, and legacy configuration will not work with alpha 5 onwards.

To get setup, you can install this using composer (as below):

    composer create-project silverstripe/installer ./ss40 4.0.0-alpha5

You can also download pre-built zip / tar from

Kind Regards,

Damian Mooyman | Principal Developer
