Announcing Silverstripe CMS Recipe 4.7.0-beta1

The Silverstripe CMS Squad has just released Silverstripe CMS 4.7.0-beta1. This also marks the feature freeze for the Silverstripe CMS 4.7 release. No new features will be added to the 4.7.0 release from this point. Bug fixes are allowed.

The 4.7.0-beta1 release is not stable and likely contains bugs. The purpose of this release is to help the Silverstripe CMS Squad and the Silverstripe community identify and fix bugs prior to the stable release. The beta period will go on for about 2 weeks and will be followed by the publication of a release candidate.

Visit the Silverstripe CMS release documentation to understand this process in detail.

The stable 4.7.0 release is scheduled for mid-December.
