This month our entire team has been working on Backpack v6. And for the first time ever... it felt like we were moving at incredible speeds. In fact, we have finished more things this month... than we previously have in 2-3 months. The entire team has come together beautifully... and I think it shows. Where does it show? Well... let me tell you the good news.

Backpack v6 - Being Released This Weekend

We're very happy with the state of Backpack v6, our latest and greatest version. In fact, we are so happy with it... that we're releasing it this weekend. If you're starting a new project next week, you'll use v6, not v5.

We are still fixing some minor inconsistencies in design, dark mode - working on backgrounds, borders, shadows, minor things like that. But the core? The meat? The functionality? That is rock-solid. We've been testing and fixing it all June.

Note: Backpack v6 is a "free" upgrade. If today you have access to updates to Backpack PRO, EditableColumns, DevTools, you'll have access to the v6-compatible versions; your purchase included 12 months of updates and upgrades.

This new release includes lots and lots of cool stuff:

  • THEMES! Including a brand-new theme based on Tabler which has... 🥁🥁🥁 dark mode 😱 and horizontal layouts 🤯
  • DROPZONE! Finally we have an upload field that is super-easy to use, both for devs and admins;
  • UPLOADERS! Creating mutators in your Models... is a thing of the past;
  • BASSETS! What are those? Well it helped us get from 90.3 MB down to 1.9 MB!

For all that and more, please read the v6 release notes.
