SalesAgility, the driving force behind SuiteCRM, have just released SuiteCRM 8.2 beta. This is 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.

SuiteCRM, the world’s preferred Open Source CRM, has over 1 million downloads worldwide and counting. It is supported by a dedicated and talented community where members volunteer their time and skill to give back to the product so that everyone can benefit.

What’s new in 8.2 beta?

The first SuiteCRM 8.2 beta is primarily all about the migration process. However, it also includes some minor tweaks to Views, to make them more inline with our SuiteCRM 8 styling, along side some back end updates to the login process. To find more check out the release notes.

We are still working hard behind the scenes to complete the features coming in 8.2, such as LDAP and SAML functionality. Look out for them in  a future release.

For more information on this new and exciting pre-release, check out the pre-release page here.

It’s important for us to give you, our community the opportunity to participate and drive the project forward in a way that is meaningful to you. We are therefore asking that you help us make the 8.2 production release the best it can be, by sharing your feedback on this beta. You can do this via our forum thread.
