Wahoo! The day has finally come. We’ve just released the long-awaited 4.0 version of the SocialEngine platform along with compatible versions of all our official plugins.
Our team worked on SE4 for over a year to completely redesign the platform from scratch. The new system is built on the popular (and open source) Zend Framework to make customizations and further development much more straightforward. We’ve also completely restructured the platform’s core to improve stability and make it more extensible for all kinds of network creators, individuals to enterprise. Our new drag-and-drop CMS and package manager opens up all kinds of possibilities for third-party mods and plugins. The list of changes and improvements is long, so we’ll be posting blog entries with highlights of the new features over the next few weeks to help you discover SE4’s awesomeness.
Reminder to SE3 clients: The SE3 to SE4 upgrade package is not yet available, but you do have free access to download SE4 from the client area. We hope to have this ready within about a month. If your current install doesn’t have many users or much data stored, consider starting fresh with a new installation of SE4 instead of upgrading. Also, remember that you’ll now be using your email address to login to the client area. If you have trouble logging in, we’ll be glad to assist you.
