We are currently working on adding documentation for eZ Publish 5 and defining the structure.

What is eZ Publish

eZ Publish is an Enterprise Open-Source Content Management System/Framework (CMS/F) at its core. It is highly extendable so with extensions it provides "WCMS" capabilities and it's default Enterprise offering as of version 5.0, "eZ Publish Platform", it is extended to provide full set of Customer Experience Management (CXM) capabilities.

 

What is new in eZ Publish 5.0

eZ Publish 5.0 represents a big step for eZ Publish, as it has a whole new architecture. But most of it is under the hood in this release, there is no new user interfaces (UI), those are covered by existing 4.x UI which is now referred to as 'legacy'. If you're a developer and want to know more about this "Dual-kernel" approach, head over to the developer section.

New major features in eZ Publish 5.0:

  • Public API
  • REST API v2 (read and write)
  • Symfony2 based

In addition we have also bundled a preview of our Demo Site on top of the new architecture, so if you do a new fresh install you will get this by default in front-end, but can turn it off by enabling "legacy_mode" in ezpublish.yml.
