Craft 5

Craft 5 is here!

Craft 5 packs hundreds of improvements, making it our biggest, most ambitious update ever. The control panel has been modernized with a refined UI and enhanced security; content modeling flexibility has been taken to a whole new level; and ease of use for authors and developers alike has been greatly improved.

Each of our first-party plugins are updated for Craft 5, including CKEditor, which can now create nested entries—our solution for creating longform content.

Introducing the Team edition

In addition to Solo and Pro, Craft 5 introduces a new middle tier: the Team edition.

Craft Team edition is optimized for marketing sites managed by small teams, that don’t need user groups or permissions. It’s got all of the features from Craft Solo—including multi-site, GraphQL, and advanced content previewing—plus up to five user accounts and developer support.

Team licenses cost $279, plus $99 per year for updates after one year. And if you need to upgrade to Craft Pro edition down the road, just pay the difference ($120).

View a full breakdown of Craft’s editions on the Pricing page.

Ready to upgrade?

Before upgrading your sites, we recommend reading through Craft 5’s upgrading instructions. You’ll need to ensure your server is running the minimum requirements and that all of your plugins are compatible.

Craft 4.8.6 added a “Craft 5 Upgrade” utility, which lists each of your plugins and whether a Craft 5-compatible version exists.

We hope you’re as excited as we are about Craft 5! We can’t wait to see what you build with it.
