SuiteCRM 8.2 will be an important moment in the evolution of SuiteCRM 8, as it will be the first release to include migration capabilities from SuiteCRM 7. With so much discussion on the subject and such a large number of SuiteCRM 7 users, this will undoubtedly be a significant milestone for the project.
We couldn’t fully rely on the legacy upgrade process because of the significant changes and enhancements that SuiteCRM 8 brings. The required changes in setup also means that this is more of a migration than an upgrade, involving many important steps and requires a good understanding of your current setup. That is why we need to your help in testing this first beta release, to make this process as smooth and slick as possible.
As an open source software project, it is critical that the community has the ability to not only voice and influence the project’s development, but also to guide us towards better solutions. As a result, we are looking for willing volunteers to assist in testing this process in as many different instances and setups as possible in order to identify any issues. But also to provide us with feedback, suggestions, and thoughts on your experience and the overall process.
Please use this post to discuss any issues, share feedback or general thoughts you have about your migration experience.
