Revolution 3.0.1 Is Here

While our initial release of MODX Revolution 3.0 has proven to be one of our best releases ever, there were some areas that needed attention. With that in mind, our first patch release is here, just under a month after it’s initial debut.

An important reminder about upgrading to Revo 3: we strongly urge you to carefully read the upgrade guide before making the leap—there are many significant changes under the hood and a few of your favorite Extras may not yet be fully compatible. You should test upgrades on a clone of your site, first, when upgrading from our older 2.x branch.

Do I Need to Upgrade to Revo 3?

While we believe it’s important to your site up to date with the latest versions of our software, we also understand that this is a big change that might require preparation. We will continue to support Revolution 2.8.x for some time, incorporating security and other important fixes, just like we’ve also done today with our dual release of 2.8.4 and 3.0.1. So if you’re not quite ready to move to Revo 3, make sure you upgrade to 2.8.4.
