Craft 3 Dev Preview is Coming in May
We've been working hard on Craft 3 for the past 6 months, and we are happy to report that the first phase of its development is nearing completion!
This initial phase has been focused on under-the-hood improvements. We've rewritten Craft for Yii 2 and PHP 5.4, and refactored a lot of the code in the process for better performance, scalability, and extensibility. There are major improvements to the plugin architecture, element querying, and the Volume API (formerly known as “Asset Sources"). We've also given Craft some powerful new debugging tools, for both front-end and back-end developers alike.
There's plenty more work to be done before Craft 3.0 will be officially released, but we want to give plugin developers a chance to see what we've got so far, and hear their thoughts. To that end, we will be releasing a public Dev Preview next month. If you're interested, you can sign up to be notified when that launches from buildwithcraft.com/3.
