Sitecore CMS Version History


You might have seen that my blog post frequency has been decreased a bit. It is because of two reasons:

  1. Busy a lot with lot of projects (But as they say Every cloud has a silver lining. This too has, currently exploring lot of new things, and yes once done that share it with you! 🙂 So, keep visiting have lot of blog posts already lined up only for you!)
  2. Started sharing my basics on another blog here — – It is blog of our company where we craft on Sitecore, and we’ve lot of other Sitecorians who do post lot of nice stuff here. So, keep visiting this blog as well!

Let’s get back to the main point, Before few weeks back, Was talking to one of my friend and we were discussing about different versions of Sitecore. In which version what functionality got added. I was able to recall few of them. But not all of them. And at that point of time this picture came in to my mind : and thought, How good it will be if we have the same diagram for our beloved Sitecore CMS? Eureka! So, If you are looking for following answers:

  1. Sitecore version history
  2. Which version got launched when?
  3. Which functionality got released in which version?

Then this post is for you!


Before starting to work on thought to give it a quick web search and as expected John West has already written blog post on it: Then thought to inherit from his blog post, and create a pictorial version of it. As you know : “A picture is worth a thousand words”


Sitecore 7.0 to Sitecore 8.2

Sitecore 5.0 to Sitecore 6.6
