Welcome to the eZ Publish 5 'space'.  This area is dedicated to documenting eZ Publish 5.x, for 4.x and 3.x documentation go to

Work in progress

This is the future documentation center for eZ Publish 5. We are currently migrating the eZ Publish documentation to this space for the eZ Publish 5 platform series.

This is a work in progress and documentation for the eZ Publish legacy components are still located on, as well as all documentation for earlier releases.

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.
