From high level 5.x kernel is:

  • “Ready Ready for the future, data compatible with the past”past: Content  Content Repository accessible via Public API & REST API v2  (full read & write support)
  • Full Symfony2 access”: Symfony2 Full-stack as the framework, extended with eZ Publish features 
  • DemoBundle front-end on top of eZ's Symfony2 stack (read only)
  • “Dual Dual kernel: Full code and data backwards compatibility”compatibility: 5.x stack is not fully functional on its own, it's combined with 4.x ("legacy stack") in a "Dual-kernel" setup (see developer section for more) to be able to provide all features you would expect; this is fully exposed to website developers as well that want/need to take advantage of legacy stack, 5.x stack or both.
